"And so I’m me again, Leo. Thanks to the example of a five-year-old. I’m hoping you wouldn’t want it any other way. Not that you weren’t flattered, right? I mean, to have a girl two thousand miles away going to pieces over you, weeping at the mere memory of you, losing her appetite, losing herself and self-respect - well, that’s trophy enough for any guy’s ego, huh?”
Stargirl holds a special place in my heart for so many reasons. Somehow she became my inspiration in a way Audrey Hepburn has been to girls who wanted to be models. As for me, I want to be more me, just like Stargirl. So in a way my case is a pursuit of being me but not imitating Stargirl at all. Confusing. I know. Anyways, I just loved this quote and I remember crying when I first read it.
