“Romantic love has always interested me: the way it ebbs and flows like a living thing, or how it is revealed in secret smiles or anguished conversations. Perhaps I've always found it captivating because it was the starkest reminder of how alone I was.”
Martin Pistorius, Ghost Boy: My Miraculous Escape from a Life Locked Inside My Own Body

“It’s right to say that people fall in love. We don’t glide, slip, or stumble into it. Instead we tumble head first from the moment we decide to step off the edge of a cliff with someone and see whether we’ll fly together. Love might be irrational, but we make the choice to risk everything.”
Martin Pistorius, Ghost Boy: The Miraculous Escape of a Misdiagnosed Boy Trapped Inside His Own Body

“No one seems to consider that even people who are thought to be intellectually impaired can change as they grow older.”
