“We all have to dream our own dreams. We only get one life to live—live it for yourself, not anyone else.”
Akemi Dawn Bowman, Starfish

“Beauty isn’t a single thing. Beauty is dreaming一it’s different for everyone, and there are so many versions of it that you mostly have no control over how you see it”
Akemi Dawn Bowman, Starfish

“But some people are just starfish--they need everyone to fill the roles that they assign. They need the world to sit around them, pointing at them and validating their feelings. But you can't spend your life trying to make a starfish happy, because no matter what you do, it will never be enough. They will always find a way to make themselves the center of attention, because it's the only way they know how to live.”
Akemi Dawn Bowman, Starfish
