I always feel this pressure of being a strong and independent icon of womanhood, and without making it look like my whole life is revolving around some guy. But loving someone, and being loved means so much to me. We always make fun of it and stuff. But isn’t everything we do in life a way to be loved a little more?
~ Julie Delphy in Before Sunrise and Before Sunset: Two Screenplays by Richard Linklater
