Friedan, Betty

Campbell, Beatrix

32.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

Landers, Ann

42.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

43.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Josh Lieb
