Happy Birthday Gertrude Stein



"To be regularly gay was to do every day the gay thing that they did every day. To be regularly gay was to end every day at the same time after they had been regularly gay. They were regularly gay. They were gay every day. They ended every day in the same way, at the same time, and they had been every day regularly gay." 

Gertrude Stein. "Miss Furr and Miss Skeene." The Penguin Book of Lesbian Short Stories edited by Margaret Reynolds.
