“Studying is hard & boring. Teaching is hard & boring. So what you’re telling me is to be bored, & then bored, & then finally bored again, but this time for the rest of my life. This whole stupid country is bored. There’s no life in it, or color, or fun. It’s probably just as well the Russians are going to drop a nuclear bomb on us any day now. So my choice is to do something hard & boring, or to marry my…my Jew & go to Paris & Rome & listen to jazz & read & eat good food in nice restaurants & have fun. It’s not enough to educate us anymore, Miss Walters. You’ve got to tell us why you’re doing it.”
