Famous quotes containing the word jong:

    Gossip is the opiate of the oppressed.
    —Erica Jong (b. 1942)

    There is a rhythm to the ending of a marriage just like the rhythm of a courtship—only backward. You try to start again but get into blaming over and over. Finally you are both worn out, exhausted, hopeless. Then lawyers are called in to pick clean the corpses. The death has occurred much earlier.
    —Erica Jong (b. 1942)

    —Erica Jong (b. 1942)
