"But what I have learned is that love—the beauty of it, the joy of it, and yes, even the pain of it—is the most incredible gift to give and to receive as a human being. And we deserve to experience love fully, equally, without shame, and without compromise."

"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you"
"The void is ‘not-being,’ and no part of ‘what is’ is a ‘not-being,’; for what ‘is’ in the strict sense of the term is an absolute plenum. This plenum, however, is not ‘one’: on the contrary, it is a ‘many’ infinite in number and invisible owing to the minuteness of their bulk."

"If you stop to think about a life and the length of it, you can’t have everything. You never can. That’s not a Hollywood thing or an actor thing — that’s a life thing.

"It’s such a shame to waste time. We always think we have so much of it."
