“For one of the first pressures that bear down on American girls is the pressure not only to be liked but to be like everyone else. This initial feat of self-transformation often involves loosening one's grip on that quiet sense of inner self and hitching one's wagon to a single standard of beauty. The stress of leaping through that hoop insinuates itself into the young heart and soul with a vengeance, and insecurities go from being hard little buds of confusion to overripe, snarled and tyrannical fruits that hang on the vine as we age.”
Debra Ollivier, What French Women Know About Love, Sex and Other Matters of the Heart and Mind

“She is focused on living her own full life, following her own agenda and cultivating her actual self, rather than reinventing herself or pining away to be someone she's not.”
Debra Ollivier, Entre Nous: A Woman's Guide To Finding Her Inner French Girl

“Feed your mind. Cultivate impressions and opinions. Know what you think.”
