Popular Quotes

“…a memoir is meant to be an impression of life, and not a photograph.”
― Jennifer Finney Boylan, I’m Looking Through You: Growing Up Haunted

 “Although my understanding of exactly how much trouble I was in grew more specific over time, as a child I surely understood enough about my condition to know it was something I’d better keep private. By intuition I was certain that the thing I knew to be true was something others would find both impossible and hilarious. My conviction, by the way, had nothing to do with a desire to be feminine, but it had everything to do with being female. Which is an odd believe for a person born male. It certainly had nothing to do with whether I was attracted to girls or boys. This last point was the one that, years later, would most frequently elude people, including the overeducated smarty-pants who constituted much of my inner circle. But being gay or lesbian is about sexual orientation. Being transgedered is about identity.”
― Jennifer Finney Boylan, She’s Not There: A Life in Two Genders

“I have a different theory, which is even more harebrained. It goes like this: Maybe we should all just love one another, even if we don’t completely understand the things that people bear in their dark, strange hearts, even if the stars that other men and women are following seem invisible to us. If we make ourselves open to the humanity of others first, maybe understanding will follow. An incomprehensible theory of the universe isn’t necessary if your only ambition is to embrace another soul. What you need, maybe all you need, in fact, is the willingness to love.”
― Jennifer Finney Boylan, Long Black Veil

When dear friends deal with me with mixed emotions, it is a little like being told, ‘Well, Jenny, we’re glad you got sprung, really, but quite honestly we did kind of like you better when you were in jail.”
― Jennifer Finney Boylan, She’s Not There: A Life in Two Genders

One Final Bonus – Jennifer Finney Boylan Quote 

“How much could the person you love change, and still remain the same person to whom you’d made your promise? We don’t expect our lovers to remain the same over the course of a long relationship. In fact, if you’re married at sixty-five to the same person you married when you were twenty, your marriage has probably failed. But there are changes, over time, that spell doom for a marriage, although exactly what these are, and to what degree, varies from couple to couple. For some people, vast changes over time make no difference to the fundamental sense of devotion one soul has for another. But for others, relatively small changes can push things to the breaking point: gaining or losing weight, gaining or losing faith, gaining or losing wealth. How does any relationship survive in the end, when change is the only constant?”

― Jennifer Finney Boylan, Long Black Veil
