“I don’t mind having Autism, but I do mind being singled out and defined by it. Autism doesn’t define me, because I want the same things every person at my age wants, to live my life, to be understood for who I am, to find love, have a rewarding career, and continue to do the best I can.”
(Kendrick Brinson)

„I know of nobody who is purely autistic, or purely neurotypical. Even God has some autistic moments, which is why the planets spin.”
(Jerry Newport)

„If I could snap my fingers and be nonautistic, I would not-because then I wouldn’t be me. Autism is part of who I am.”
(Temple Grandin)

“I was the only one who had colours: I had an internal colour system which became a way of connecting information about different worlds, about the nursery world and the garden world. Everything became a colour inside me- people, words, feelings, atmospheres. Not understanding was faintly orange, a pale orange with sunlight coming through it. Tiredness, what I hadn’t the energy to try to understand, came and laid a dark green on top of the orange light and put it out.”

„The thing was the best during school hours was when I went way out in a field with my miniature people and cars and played in the sand or on a log by myself.”
