Stargirl Love Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

I wonder if I'll ever get another chance. I wonder, but I don't despair. Though I have no family of my own, I do not feel alone. I know that I am being watched. The echo of laughter is the second sunrise I awaken to each day, and at night I feel it is more than starts looking down on me. Last month, one day before my birthday, I received a gift-wrapped package in the mail. It was a porcupine necktie (Epilogue.10).

Ah, the words of an older, wiser Leo. Do you think Leo was just too immature at the time he knew Stargirl? Maybe he just wasn't ready for the real kind of love she was offering. Do you think that now, as an adult, he would be able to love her true self? We hope so, but he had better love his true self, first.
