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
Oh, leave the Gay and festive scenes, The halls of dazzling light.
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.
When you come to the end of a perfect day, And you sit alone with your thought, While the chimes ring out with a carol Gay For the joy that the day has brought, Do you think what the end of a perfect day Can mean to a tired heart, When the sun goes down with a flaming ray, And the dear friends have to part?
Sorry. I'd much rather be Gay than sleep with you just to prove I wasn't.
It seems to me that the real clue to your sex orientation lies in your romantic feelings rather than in your sexual feelings. If you are really Gay, you are able to fall in love with a man, not just enjoy having sex with him.christopher isherwood
No person knows better than you do that the domination of England is the sole and blighting curse of this country. It is the incubus that sits on our energies, stops the pulsation of the nation’s heart and leaves to Ireland not Gay vitality but horrid the convulsions of a troubled dream.Daniel O'Connell
I’m Gay. I just didn’t think it was anybody’s business … All I wanted was to be straight so my parents could be happy. They never, never, never knew.maurice sendak
I hope through The L Word to become an honorary member of the Gay tribe. I cherish the thought that some young girl or woman somewhere may one night turn on the television and for the first time ever see her life represented -- not as an isolated incident but as a multiplicity. Her overwhelming fear may have been that she might never find her tribe, she might never find love and now she knows that they are both out there waiting for her.jennifer beals
In an essay 10 years ago, I pointed out that it is utterly logical for polygamy rights to follow Gay rights. After all, if traditional marriage is defined as the union of (1) two people of (2) opposite gender, and if, as advocates of Gay marriage insist, the gender requirement is nothing but prejudice, exclusion and an arbitrary denial of one's autonomous choices in love, then the first requirement – the number restriction (two and only two) – is a similarly arbitrary, discriminatory and indefensible denial of individual choice.charles krauthammer
As a result of [my campaign's] discussions and other interactions with Gay and lesbian voters across the state, I am more convinced than ever that as we seek to establish full equality for America's Gay and lesbian citizens, I will provide more effective leadership than Ted Kennedy.mitt romney
D'ye ken John Peel with his coat so Gay? D'ye ken John Peel at the break of the day? D'ye ken John Peel when he's far, far away, With his hounds and his horn in the morning?
In Paris a queer little man you may see, A little man all in gray; Rosy and round as an apple is he, Content with the present whate'er it may be, While from care and from cash he is equally free, And merry both night and day! "Ma foi! I laugh at the world." says he, "I laugh at the world, and the world laughs at me!" What a Gay little man in gray.pierre-jean de béranger
Is this that haughty gallant, Gay Lothario?
[We must] repeal the law that denies Gay and lesbian Americans the right to serve the country they love because of who they are. It's the right thing to do.
"the reason no one has yet been able to come up with a good word to describe the homosexualist (sometimes known as Gay, fag, queer, etc.) is because he does not exist. The human race is divided into male and female. Many human beings enjoy the sexual relations with their own sex, many don't; many respond to both. The plurality is the fact of our nature and not worth fretting about."
