"I am awfully greedy; I want everything from life. I want to be a woman and a man, to have many friends and to have loneliness, to work much and to write good books, to travel and to enjoy myself, to be selfish and to be unselfish... You see, it is difficult to get all which I want. And when I do not succeed I get mad with anger."
-Simone De Beauvoir
Joel: I can’t see anything that I don’t like about you.
Clementine: But you will! But you will. You know, you will think of things. And I’ll get bored with you and feel trapped because that’s what happens with me.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, 2004 (dir. Michel Gondry)
