“I think I’m quite uncompromising. I can’t bear bulls—-. And in a way the shyness is me protecting other people from that. I can feel that there’s an intimidation that can happen if I own my full height, and speak at my full volume. So I’ve learned over the years to just tone it all down a bit.”
"Or another way of look at it is that you can go anywhere you want to be."
"I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity, and her flaming self respect. And it’s these things I’d believe in, even if the whole world indulged in wild suspicions that she wasn’t all she should be. I love her and it is the beginning of everything.” - The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald.
