“Women serve as guardians of culture, upholders of society.”
“Gossip, even when it avoids the sexual, bears about it a faint flavor of the erotic.”
“Poring over fragments of other people's lives, peering into their bedrooms when they don't know we're there, we thrill to the glamour and the power of secret knowledge, partly detoxified but also heightened by being shared.”
“The pleasure of reading biography, like that of reading letters, derives from the universal hunger to penetrate other lives.”
Patricia Meyer Spacks, U.S. writer, literature scholar
