“There was time when, like Kate, I'd wanted to be a ballerina. But since then I've gone through a thousand different stages: I wanted to be an astronaut. I wanted to be a paleontologist. I wanted to be a backup singer for Aretha Franklin, a member of the cabinet, a Yellowstone National Park ranger. Now, based on the day, I want to be a micro-surgeon, a poet, a ghost hunter. Only one thing's constant. "Ten years from now," I say, "I'd like to be Kate's sister."”
“Once, I asked my mom why stars shine. She said they were night-lights, so the angels could find their way around in Heaven.
