Quote of the Week

"Some research has suggested that it is men, more than women, who yearn for marriage, but this may be merely a case of stated preference. Men want someone who will take care of them, make them look good, and have sex with them -- not necessarily in that order. It may be that this is all that women really want, too, but they are better at disguising or obscuring it. They deal in calculus, while men, for the most part, traffic in simple sums."
 - Nick Paumgarten, "Looking for Someone," p. 41 of the 7/4/11 New Yorker
