"Robert, please. You don’t understand, no-one does. When a woman makes the choice to marry, to have children; in one way her life begins but in another way it stops. You build a life of details. You become a mother, a wife and you stop and stay steady so that your children can move. And when they leave they take your life of details with them. And then you’re expected move again only you don’t remember what moves you because no-one has asked in so long. Not even yourself. You never in your life think that love like this can happen to you."

Meryl Streep: “I don’t know. I really don’t know. The man that I love is so completely a part of my body. It’s like saying ‘what you like about yourself?’, he’s related, he’s home, he’s me, he’s everything.”
But what do I like about a man? I like someone who has a good character and generosity..and is willing to give me some rope to hang myself on. And who’s forgiving about my insanity. And who has an aesthetic of his own that is impressive and interesting…always interesting.
Q: Is curiosity what moves you?
MS: “Yeah…and I love his forearms. But I can’t really go into everything. Just the shape of his forearms….so beautiful!”
Q: Is that what attracts you to a man?
MS: “That’s not all of it, but…..
Q: Part of it?
