“But, she knew, you didn’t have to marry your soulmate, and you didn’t even have to marry an Interesting. You didn’t always need to be the dazzler, the firecracker, the one who cracked everyone up, or made everyone want to sleep with you, or be the one who wrote and starred in the play that got the standing ovation.

Meg Wolitzer, The Interestings

“People could not get enough of what they had lost, even if they no longer wanted it.”
Meg Wolitzer, The Interestings
