Lesbian Quotes by Famous Lesbians

I chose these quotes from amongst many. I included one from Rita Mae Brown. Her lesbian novel, “Ruby Fruit Jungle” was the first lesbian novel I read. I went on to read the dark and desperate novel, “The Well of Loneliness.” I was so glad that I read Ruby Fruit Jungle first!

-Girls who put out are tramps. Girls who don’t are ladies. This is, however, a rather archaic usage of the word. Should one of you boys happen upon a girl who doesn’t put out, do not jump to the conclusion that you have found a lady. What you have probably found is a Lesbian.

-The love expressed between women is particular and powerful, because we have had to love in order to live; love has been our survival.

Every woman I have ever loved has left her print upon me, where I loved some invaluable piece of myself apart from me–so different that I had to stretch and grow in order to recognize her. And in that growing, we came to separation, that place where work begins.
