It’s a Davies quote, but this is Amy’s story. Diegetic and meta.

There are lots of people who tell her, don’t dream don’t wish don’t wait, the Doctor isn’t real and stars aren’t and Leadsworth’s enough isn’t it?—and then there’s our world. Where marriage was a well-worn way of writing out a companion; where there are so few female characters who get to grow up and still have adventures.

And Amy? Pushes past them all.
