My little horse must think it queer To stop without a farmhouse near Between the woods and frozen lake The darkest evening of the year.
For some queer and deplorable reason most human beings are more impressed by words than by figures , to the great disadvantage of mankind.

Technology?is a queer thing. It brings you great gifts with one hand, and it stabs you in the back with the other.
Instead of the poems I had hoped for, there came only a shuddering blackness and ineffable loneliness; and I saw at last a fearful truth which no one had ever dared to breathe before the unwhisperable secret of secrets The fact that this city of stone and stridor is not a sentient perpetuation of Old New York as London is of Old London and Paris of Old Paris, but that it is in fact quite dead, its sprawling body imperfectly embalmed and infested with queer animate things which have nothing to do with it as it was in life.h. p. lovecraft
Technology … is a queer thing. It brings you great gifts with one hand, and it stabs you in the back with the other.c. p. snow
No government has the right to tell its citizens when or whom to love. The only queer people are those who don't love anybody.Rita Mae Brown
America I'm putting my queer shoulder to the wheel.Allen Ginsberg
I can't be absolutely certain, 30 years ago when I made the decision to become anactor, but certainlyone of the reasons was it was the way to meet other queer men.Sir Ian Murray McKellen
A man's a fool to look at things too near: They look back, and begin to cut up queer.
California is a queer place — in a way, it has turned its back on the world, and looks into the void Pacific. It is absolutely selfish, very empty, but not false, and at least, not full of false effort.d. h. lawrence
It's queer they'd be allowin' the sick ones to read books when I'll bet it's the same lazy readin' in the house bought the half of them down with the consumption itself.Eugene O'Neill
He kept telling me I was queer, and I didn't like it. The word, I mean. Shutting you away, somehow; roping you off with a lot of people you don't feel much in common with, half of whom hate the other half anyway, and just keep together so that they can lean up against each other for support.mary renault
I was paid to be a warhead, and anyone who came near me should get knocked into Hell! "I don't care who gets in my way--my mother, my grandmother, my daughter: I'll knock each and every one of them on their ass." "Call me a queer. I'd rather hit than make love, money, or friends."
When Man evolved Pity, he did a queer thing deprived himself of the power of living life as it is without wishing it to become something different.john galsworthy
I know it is a sin For me to sit and grin At him here; But the old three-cornered hat, And the breeches, and all that, Are so queer!

A deadly spot the end of the world almost....There are 20,000 British coloured people working on the canal...; they are mostly from Jamaica & smell too revolting for words....the Panamanians are a very queer people, all dagoes of course, though very pompous and dirty.
The strangest country I ever visited was England; but I visited it at a very early age, and so became a little queer myself. England is extremely subtle; and about the best of it there is something almost secretive; it is an amateur even more than aristocratic in tradition; it is never official.

Andrew Parker (1994), among others, defines queer as, "a non-gender-specific rubric that defines itself diacritically not against heterosexuality but against the normative,"
while Michael Warner (1993) defines queer as "resistance to regimes of the normal."
One of the things that 'queer' can refer to: the open mesh of possibilities, gaps, overlaps, dissonances and resonances, lapses and excesses of meaning when the constituent elements of anyone's gender, of anyone's sexuality aren't made (or can't be made) to signify monolithically.eve kosofsky sedgwick
"'queer' derives its force precisely through the repeated invocation by which it has become linked to accusation, pathologization, insult. This is an invocation by which a social bond among homophobic communities is formed through time. The interpellation echoes past interpellations, and binds the speakers, as if they spoke in unison across time. In this sense, it is always an imaginary chorus that taunts 'queer'".
