"Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future."Margaret Cho on John F. Kennedy
"Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of Congress but I repeat myself."Margaret Cho on Mark Twain

"If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in 5 years there'd be a shortage of sand."Margaret Cho on Milton Friedman

"I didn't appreciate the young woman that I was, or my young beauty, because I was so obsessed with the fact that I felt fat. It's never good to add to anybody else's suffering. It's an important topic to really get the gravity and the importance of - dealing with dignity."
"Thankfully, beauty is easier to remove than apply, and a swipe of demaquillage in the right direction and you are you once again."
"Just because you are blind and unable to see my beauty doesn't mean it does not exist."
"People drain me, even the closest of friends, and I find loneliness to be the best state in the union to live in."
"Interventions are really emotionally exhausting and I would never ever want to have one. In the same way, I would never want to have a surprise birthday party. That would be horrible."
