    I’m very sad. She left a gigantic footprint, though — and that makes me less sad about not having this type of warrior around but happy that she made such a difference with her life. (And, I know that her life influenced others, who will continue to fight for what’s right). … Of course, they won’t be as dead-on funny, especially regarding Shrub; that was a brilliance distinctly Molly’s.

    So keep fightin’ for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don’t you forget to have fun doin’ it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin’ ass and celebratin’ the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was.”

    Quoted at the end of John Nichols’ nice tribute in The Nation online:
