Quote1 You keep waiting for the dust to settle and then you realize this is it; the dust is your life going on.

Quote1 Part of me feels as old as time itself. That's what reached out to Remy, that's what he responded to. But he was man enough to pull me back from that mistake. To show me a line I shouldn't cross. I'm so afraid if I ever step over that, I lose everything. Quote2
--Katherine Pryde (Earth-616)
Quote1 Maybe we don't belong here anymore. Quote2
--Katherine Pryde (Earth-616)
Quote1 There are rules, what you're supposed to do the first day after a loved one dies...then the first week...then the first month...all the way to the first year, the first Yartzeit. The idea, I guess, is that it's supposed to take that whole year to come to terms with the loss. So the Yartzeit, it's closure, but it's more. Because when someone you love dies, it never goes away. Some days are easier than others. Some days maybe you can't think about it at all...but it never goes away. And that's all right. That's as it should be... Quote2
--Katherine Pryde (Earth-616)

--Katherine Pryde (Earth-616)

New Mutants

Quote1 Who was he then, that we gather to mourn him? Who am I? A four-eyed, flat-chested, brat, chick, brain, Hebe, stuck-up Xavier's snob freak! Don't like the words? I could use nicer. I've heard worse. who here hasn't? So often, so casually, that maybe we've forgotten the power they have to hurt. Nigger, Spic, Wop, Slope, Faggot, Mutie -- The list is so long and so cruel. They're labels, put-downs. And they hurt. But usually we laugh it off or hit back -- with words of our own, or fists -- or we suffer in silence. No big deal, this is the rough edge of reality, right? Why make a fuss? Trouble was, when someone labeled Larry Bodine a "mutie", they hit home -- because he was. His power created beauty. That's it. He did with light and color what Mozart did with music. And he wanted nothing more than to be accepted by his peers, and possibly even liked -- and isn't that what any of us really want? To have friends, people to care for us? Not to be alone? If we're lucky we have someone to turn to. Quote2
--Shadowcat (At Larry Bodine's Memorial, New Mutants #45)

Mekanix

Quote1 I'm Jewish. I'm also a woman, an American and a Cubs fan. All of which make me a minority and an object of hatred somewhere in the world. But this is college. Here, none of that's supposed to matter! Except for that bit about the Cubs. Quote2

Astonishing X-Men Vol 3 #1


Quote1 The first time I ever met the X-Men, the first day...they were ambushed. And captured. And caged. By you. I learned more about good and evil in that one day than I ever have before or since. I was thirteen. When I think about evil, whenever I think about the concept of evil, yours in the face that I see. I don't have to "watch you", Miss Frost. I can smell you. Quote2
--Shadowcat to Emma Frost (Astonishing X-Men Vol 3 #2)

Quote1 Everything is so fragile. There's so much conflict, so much pain...you keep waiting for the dust to settle and then you realize this it; the dust is your life going on. If happy comes along--the unbearable delight that's actual happy--I think you have to grab it while you can. You take what you can get, 'cause it's here, and then...gone. Quote2
