The Lunar Crater Kovalevskaya Is Named In Her Honor

" She was learning, quite late, what many people around her appeared to have known since childhood- that life can be perfectly satisfying without major achievements. It could be brimful of occupations that did not weary you to the bone. Acquiring what you needed for a comfortably furnished life, and then taking on a social and public life of entertainment, would keep you from ever being bored or idle, and would make you feel at the end of the day that you had done exactly what pleased everybody. There need be no agonizing.

Except in the manner of how to get money. "

-from Alice Munro's upcoming book about the Russian mathematician Sofia Kovalevskaya, entitled "Too Much Happiness"
