Quotes

Alison Botha: I will never drive in a car without locking the doors. I will never again watch a film without marveling at every camera angle and the lighting and knowing how many people are in the room watching the person voice her thoughts. I will never again stop myself from crying when I feel the need. I will never again see a butterfly without taking it as a sign just for me.
