"When you're coming to an end, you don't take any comfort in your achievements. What matters is how it went with women and how it went with children. That's what becomes important. The terrible symmetry is that men don't tend to blame themselves--it's always someone else's fault. And women tend to blame themselves. But, then, at the very end, it's the men who start blaming themselves and the women stop blaming themselves. And that's why they're happier."
Martin Amis (quoted in The Wall Street Journal, Dec. 28, 2012)
