"…Lee, has this moment where you first meet him, and suddenly he turns — he’s at a profile — he turns and looks into the camera…and it’s sooo scary, but it’s sooo good! He’s not doing anything! He’s just looking at the camera!"

Listen to me, you can’t fix people.
Your love won’t make him stop hating his father
and your devotion won’t cure her of her childhood.
All you can do is be there, violets sprouting out
from your ribs, acceptance on your lips, your own
wounds still bleeding and all you can do is be there
and sometimes that’s enough, sometimes that’s everything.

"A woman is not written in braille, you don’t have to touch her to know her."
"What was the greatest day you ever spent together?"
“Had to be when there was a full lunar eclipse while we were floating on a houseboat in a swamp in Botswana. Not even the guide knew it was coming. It was a full moon that night, and suddenly I noticed a corner of it starting to disappear. Then a quarter. Then a half. Then it went completely dark, and the Milky Way just filled up the sky.”
Oh that just sounds absolutely phenomenal…
