Famous quotes by erica jong:

    In a world where women work three times as hard for half as much, our achievement has been denigrated, both marriage and divorce have turned against us, our motherhood has been used as an obstacle to our success, our passion as a trap, our empathy for others as an excuse to underpay us.
    Erica Jong (20th century)

    Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn’t.
    Erica Jong (b. 1942)

    Every country gets the circus it deserves. Spain gets bullfights. Italy gets the Catholic Church. America gets Hollywood.
    Erica Jong (b. 1942)

    Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow the talent to the dark place where it leads.

    Friends love misery, in fact. Sometimes, especially if we are too lucky or too successful or too pretty, our misery is the only thing that endears us to our friends.
