“A literary academic can no more pass a bookstore than an alcoholic can pass a bar.”
Carolyn G. Heilbrun

“Professors of literature collect books the way a ship collects barnacles, without seeming effort.”
Carolyn G. Heilbrun, Death in a Tenured Position

“We women have lived too much with closure: "If he notices me, if I marry him, if I get into college, if I get this work accepted, if I get this job" -- there always seems to loom the possibility of something being over, settled, sweeping clear the way for contentment. This is the delusion of a passive life. When the hope for closure is abandoned, when there is an end to fantasy, adventure for women will begin.”
Carolyn G. Heilbrun, Writing A Woman's Life
