Lois McMaster Bujold

Jones, Franklin P.
There is no sinner like a young saint.

Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.

Lois McMaster Bujold
