Bon mots

"I had left home (like all Jewish girls) in order to eat pork and take birth control pills. When I first shared an intimate evening with my husband I was swept away by the passion (so dormant inside myself) of a long and tortured existence. The physical cravings I had tried so hard to deny finally and ultimately sated -- but enough about the pork."

-- Roseanne Barr (American comedian. 3 November 1952 -)
