“Apology is pointless. Apologies are for when you forget something. Or bump into somebody. Apologies are for accidents. You can't apologise for something you chose to do. That's like apologising for being you.”
Steven Camden, It's About Love

“But if you do find your thing, something that makes your blood crackle, you better damn well do it.”
Steven Camden, It's About Love

“Because nobody's one thing, Lukey. You make a person one thing, and you'll miss out on everything else that they are. That they could be.”
Steven Camden, It's About Love
