For years, I have been intending to post a collection of some of my favorite quotes on single life. Somehow I never got to it; I always wanted to dig through one more box of clippings before doing so. Then my list suddenly materialized, in an unexpected way. Take a look at these four quotes (links were added by me) and meet me at the other side.
Can you tell what makes this set of quotes about single life differ from most Best-Quotes lists? First, at least in my opinion, they are particularly enlightened insights. But what I’m really getting at is that they are all from the same person, in the same interview.
That person is Kate Bolick. You may remember her from the cover story in the Atlantic magazine, “All the single ladies,” that got huge media attention. (I discussed it here, here, and here.) She is now writing a book on the topic, and there may be a TV show in the works, too. All of the quotes above, though, are from one source: an interview she did with Wisconsin Public Radio.
I still want to publish a more typical collection of quotes that come from more than one person. So if you have any favorite quotes about single life, please share them in the comments section (or email them to me) and let me know if I can credit you if I use your quote.
[Notes. (1) Thanks to Jason McMahan for the heads-up about this interview. (2) As I mentioned in my previous post, over at my personal blog, I’m publishing some posts that are collections of links, all on the same topic. The ones I have so far are about [a] examples of businesses practices that may seem unfair to single people; [b] what we know about single-at-heart; [c] single parents and their children; and [d] lying and detecting lies.]
UPDATE. Our friends Lisa and Christina from Onely were also interviewed on Wisconsin Public Radio. Take a look, or a listen, here.
