"The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act.

It’s got to happen inside first."
"Eu sou feita de tão pouca coisa e meu equilíbrio é tão frágil, que eu preciso de um excesso de segurança para me sentir mais ou menos segura."

What about that?"
