“I’d love to see those touristy things, but it’s you I came to see, not a waterfall or the coast of South Africa.”
“I predicted that the pain would persist for a while, but neither of us would feed on it. We would both try to rise above it and get on with our lives, he faster than I.”
“I’d prefer to have a man doll himself up in lingerie every night than come home drunk.”
“I knew about the siren songs, abysses, bewitching spells, and strange monsters out there, but they sank out of sight in the fulfillment of my homecoming.” 

Ann Anderson Evans

Ann was raised with the domestic skills and good manners to be someone’s wife. By the time she got her M.A. in English from New York University in 1964, she still had not found a husband; quite the contrary, romantic disappointments left her rebellious, curious, and in need of a career.
