    If men got pregnant, there would be safe, reliable methods of birth control. They’d be inexpensive, too.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    Celebrity is a mask that eats into the face. As soon as one is aware of being “somebody,” to be watched and listened to with extra interest, input ceases, and the performer goes blind and deaf in his overanimation. One can either see or be seen.
    John Updike (b. 1932)
