Storm Reid is Meg Murry in Disney’s A WRINKLE IN TIME.

Charles Wallace: What?

Meg: Don’t you Charles Wallace? 

Charles Wallace: It’s okay. You don’t understand how weak-mindedness you’re willing to accept the fact that love is just a word. It’s an empty, meaningless word. 

Meg: You can hurt me when I say I love you, but I’ll love you anyway! Because you love me! That’s why you made milk for me on stormy nights. That’s why you check in on me during recess. That’s why you wanted to find daddy, to make me happy! That’s why the Mrs. took a chance on me. Because they felt your love. And you should love me because I deserve to be loved! 

I love you. I love you, Charles Wallace! I LOVE YOU! 

I love you biscuits! 


Mrs. Which: Meg, you did it. 

Meg: I tried!

    Please check the beautiful quote about “not gone, but enfolded”. You posted “unfolded”. The word “enfolded” makes so much more sense as when enfolded (like a wrinkle in time) you may not be able to see the person – not gone, but enfolded. 😉
