Subtitle Quote: Line from a paraphrased passage from Anthony Rapp's book I often use:
“I really feel like this is part of my life's work....It's part of what I want to do with my time here....So if I can make a difference at all by talking openly about myself, I'm glad.” - Anthony Rapp, Without You, pp. 206-207
