Quotation encountered while reading The Receptionist by Janet Groth, an uneven memoir of a girl's journey to strength and self-possession and a career as a college professor after 21 years as a receptionist at the New Yorker.
Another good quote I found in the book:
"We are all of us searching for a perfect family. Sometimes we substitute material things, but often in the friendships we form, the lovers we take, the mates we marry, we are arranging for ourselves the understanding mother, the good father, the loving brother and sister we yearn for, the things we missed in our own." -- Jane Groth's therapist's mentor
