This quote intrigues me. I don't know how I feel about it. I guess it hits a little too close to home? Sometimes I'd just like to curl myself into that little ball. Sometimes it's too hard to be big and know you control nothing (but yourself) and much easier to be little and feel like you control something.
And then again, my favorite character in the Avengers is the old guy who stands up and says no to Loki. I watch the whole movie for that part. I love that he stands up. I love that he tells Loki that agency matters. And I love that Captain America (my second favorite character. What can I say? I'm strongly justice oriented) saves his life.
But really...I'd rather live my life, secluded somewhere off the grid, growing my food and charging my cell phone with solar energy (okay, so not THAT off the grid. The internet's kind of my friend, and I love being able to text) than to be big and bold and loud and stand up and make my voice heard.
So why do I feel like I'm meant for the latter?
