TRYING
"All girls continue to be taught when they are young, if not by their parents then by the culture around them, that they must earn the right to be loved — that “femaleness” is not good enough. This is a female’s first lesson in the school of patriarchal thinking and values. She must earn love. She is not entitled. She must be good enough to be loved. And good is always defined by someone else, someone on the outside."

“The hotel is, of course, an ideal place for cerebral brooding; hotels are by their nature in-between. It is where you sleep, but it is not your home. You are a guest without a host, surrounded by scores of strangers, hanging up their clothes in the room next door, as close as family.”
Maggie Lange on Lost in Translation, E. M. Forster’s Lucy Honeychurch, and other characters waiting in hotels.
