The world doesn't need a savior. But every day I hear people crying for one.

As has been noted in comments, this is from the record-breaking blockbuster film Superman Returns.
Superman: Listen; what do you hear?
Lois Lane: Nothing.
Superman: I hear everything. You wrote that the world doesn't need a savior, but every day I hear people crying for one.
