"Sometimes kindness can be delivered in a clumsy way."
"He suddenly looked his age, vulnerable. Not like the young man who was fighting for his family, but the little school boy who ran in my bedroom the night we were taken."
"They didn't ask for anything. They were happy to help someone, to succeed at something, even if they weren't to benefit."
"I'll see you. Just think about that. Just think about me bringing you your drawings."
