Some women are meant to change the world, while others are meant to hold it together. And then there are those of us who simply don't want to be in it, because we know no matter how much we struggle, we can't comfortably fit.

Heroes didn't leap tall buildings or stop bullets with an outstretched hand; they didn't wear boots and capes. They bled, and they bruised, and their superpowers were as simple as listening, or loving. Heroes were ordinary people who knew that even if their own lives were impossibly knotted, they could untangle someone else's. And maybe that one act could lead someone to rescue you right back.
Love is not a "because", it's a "no matter what".
Ein Leben wurde nicht durch den Augenblick des Todes bestimmt, sondern durch all die anderen Augenblicke, die man gelebt hatte.
Liebe bedeutete, aus großer Höhe zu springen und darauf zu vertrauen, dass ein anderer Mensch da war, um dich aufzufangen.
Love meant jumping off a cliff and trusting that a certain person would be there to catch you at the bottom.
