A woman in the picture had a partial quote on her shirt that I had to google.  Found this:

Laura Thatcher Ulrich: “Well-behaved women rarely make history.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laurel_Thatcher_Ulrich

2) If you meet the buddha in the road, kill him – Zen Master Linji

3) Jamaica Kincaid, A Small Place.  The power of slim books.
