Quote of the Day (Barbara Pym, on Men Who Want ‘One Thing’)

“'Poor Constance was left alone a great deal,' said Miss Doggett.  'In many ways, of course, Mr. Driver is a very charming man. They say, though, that men only want one thing -- that's the truth of the matter.' Miss Doggett again looked puzzled; it was if she had heard that men only wanted one thing, but had forgotten for the moment what it was.”—Barbara Pym, Jane and Prudence: A Novel (1953)
