Odd, the years it took to learn one simple fact: that the prize just ahead, the next job, publication, love affair, marriage always seemed to hold the key to satisfaction but never, in the longer run, sufficed.

Other quotes by Carolyn Heilbrun

The journey is over. Love to all.

Quoting, like smoking, is a dirty habit to which I am devoted.

Today's shocks are tomorrow's conventions.

Ideas move rapidly when their time comes.

The married are those who have taken the terrible risk of intimacy and, having taken it, know life without intimacy to be impossible.
