Lo, thro' her works gay nature grieves How brief she is and frail, As ever o'er the falling leaves Autumnal winds prevail. Yet still the philosophic mind Consolatory food can find, And hope her anchorage maintain: We never are deserted quite; 'Tis by succession of delight That love supports his reign.
A prowde hert in a beggers brest, A fowle visage with Gay temples of atyre, Horrible othes with an holy prist, A justice of juges to selle and lete to hyre, A knave to comande and have an empire, To yeve a jugement of that never was wrought, To preche of pees and sette eche man on fyre, It may wele ryme but it accordith nought.john lydgate

To live lightheartedly but not recklessly; to be Gay without being boisterous; to be courageous without being bold; to show trust and cheerful resignation without fatalism this is the art of living.jean de la fontaine
Prosperity and penury do not turn on gyno-centric and Gay matters. But leftist statists and libertarians of the left place these wedge issues at the forefront of the fight for freedom. [...] Every bit as bad as liberals, "libertarian" political operators are prepared to shed political blood over any imagined sign of bigotry.ilana mercer
For as long as the power of America's diversity is diminished by acts of discrimination and violence against people just because they are black, Hispanic, Asian, Jewish, Muslim or Gay, we still must overcome.
“Even though adult homosexuals have fought hard to win rights and liberties... too many people are still scandalized by the mere idea that youth discovering their Gay orientation could be given the same liberties and possibilities as straight ones. Whereas the discovery of heterosexual desire is celebrated as the sign that "he's becoming a man" and therefore largely encouraged, without anyone seeing any sort of proselytizing in it, it's a completely different story when it's homosexual desire that's surfacing. Everything happens as if gays and bisexuals under 18 didn't exist, or at least shouldn't exist.’
I seek for one as fair and Gay, but find none to remind me, how blest the hours pass'd away with the girl I left behind me.
Gay hope is theirs by fancy fed, Less pleasing when possest; The tear forgot as soon as shed, The sunshine of the breast.thomas gray
Never to have lived is best, ancient writers say; Never to have drawn the breath of life, never to have looked into the eye of day; The second best's a Gay goodnight and quickly turn away.
Thank God for these Gay demonstrators. If I didn't have them, I'd have to invent them. They give me all the publicity I need.jerry falwell
A bunch of money-grubbin', greenhouse-gasing, seal-clubbing, oil-drilling, Bible-thumping, missile-firing, right-to-life-ing, lethal-injecting hypocrites. People whose idea of a good time is strapping a dead panda to a Lincoln Navigator and running over everybody in the Gay parade.richard jeni
The play is done; the curtain drops,Slow falling to the prompter’s bellA moment yet the actor stopsAnd looks around to say farewell.It is an irksome word and task:And when he’s laughed and said his sayHe shows, as he removes the mask,A face that’s anything but Gay.william makepeace thackeray
A poet could not but be Gay, In such a jocund company.william wordsworth
My wind is turned to bitter north, That was so soft a south before; My sky, that shone so sunny bright, With foggy gloom is clouded o’er My Gay green leaves are yellow-black, Upon the dank autumnal floor; For love, departed once, comes back No more again, no more.arthur hugh clough
The only kind of marriage liberals had ever glorified is the Gay kind. But thanks to Michael Schiavo, the sanctity of marriage is fast becoming a liberal sacrament, with the proviso it has to involve 'mercy killing.' It took Michael Schiavo's devoted efforts to starve and dehydrate his wife to restore liberal faith in the institution.ilana mercer
No one is “born Gay.” The idea is ridiculous, but it is symptomatic of our overpoliticized climate that such assertions are given instant credence by Gay activists and their media partisans. I think what Gay men are remembering is that they were born different .camille paglia
They were regular in being Gay, they learned little things that are things in being Gay, they learned many little things that are things in being Gay, they were Gay every day, they were regular, they were Gay, they were Gay the same length of time every day, they were Gay, they were quite regularly Gay.Gertrude Stein

Gone are the days when my heart was young and Gay , Gone are my friends from the cotton fields away, , Gone from the earth to a better land I know, I hear their gentle voices calling “Old Black Joe”.
"Queerness...[is] more a posture of opposition than a simple statement about sexuality. It [is] about principles, not particularities. 'To me,' explained [Queer Nation/San Francisco activist Karl] Knapper, 'queerness is about acknowledging and celebrating difference, embracing wha sets you apart. A straight person can't be Gay, but a straight person can be queer."
