Quote of the day: CHILDREN

March 22, 2010


Many people suffer all their lives from [an] oppressive feeling of guilt, the sense of not having lived up to their parents’ expectations. This feeling is stronger than any intellectual insight that it is not a child’s task or duty to satisfy his parent’s narcissistic needs.

    One of my favorite quotes! Is it true that she originally wrote in German and it was translated in English? If so, she had a great translator.
