Twilight + Anne Rice + L.L. Bean + Photo shoot = "Outerwear With a Vampire"
"Benedict and I have had difficult periods. And we always faced serious, scary problems. But I have a theory about courage. I don't think it's a moment of bravery when you have a rush of adrenaline. Courage is something level, a kind of force that sustains you. And that's what it takes to face difficult things, to make it through life successfully."

-- Nancy Freedman, co-author of the book Mrs. Mike

"I've never said I was gay and I've never said that I wasn't. A Lot of people would say that I wasn't because I never do anything about it. What I'm trying to say is that I am a person before I am anything else. Now people come up to you and say, 'I'm a press agent' or 'I'm a writer.' I never say I am a writer. I never say I am an artist."

-- Edward Gorey in an interview with Lisa Solod,
Boston Magazine, September 1980
