Why would I say no? I haven’t done anything quite like this. It moved me. This idea that someone who looks at the world one way and has that view turned upside down, but ultimately has to come to terms with it being ephemeral. That’s really the journey — understanding that what you shared doesn’t go away even if it doesn’t last. That is the kind of profound thing that we all have to learn and contend with as human beings.
— Anton Yelchin
