Maybe young women don’t wonder whether they can have it all any longer, but in case any of you are wondering, of course you can have it all. What are you going to do? Everything, is my guess. It will be a little messy, but embrace the mess. It will be complicated, but rejoice in the complications. It will not be anything like what you think it will be like, but surprises are good for you. And don’t be frightened: You can always change your mind. I know: I’ve had four careers and three husbands.

Nora Ephronin her 1996 Wellesley commencement address, debunking (16 years ahead of time) the Atlantic’s current cover story “Why women still can’t have it all.” (via washingtonpoststyle)
