From a New Yorker article on Golden Gate Bridge jumpers:

'As he crossed the chord in flight, Baldwin recalls, “I instantly realized that everything in my life that I’d thought was unfixable was totally fixable—except for having just jumped.”'

(Found thanks to a Fresh Air interview with Nick Hornby about his recent novel, A Long Way Down:

"He said that he realized very quickly after jumping that there was only one thing wrong with his life and that was that he'd just jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge.")
