Quirky Quotes 22.12.2017

“‘Goodwill to all.’ I know it’s technically ‘goodwill to all men,’ but in my mind, I drop the ‘men’ because that feels segregationist / elitist / sexist / generally bad -ist. Goodwill shouldn’t be just for men. It should also apply to women and children, and all animals, even the yucky ones like subway rats.I’d even extend the goodwill not just to living creatures but to the dearly departed, and if we include them, we might as well include the undead, those supposedly mythic beings like vampires, and if they’re in, then so are elves, fairies, and gnomes. Heck, since we’re already being so generous in our big group hug, why not also embrace those supposedly inanimate objects like dolls and stuffed animals. I’m sure Santa would agree. ‘Goodwill to all.”

-Rachel Cohn, Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares
