CHILDREN

I was too beautiful for public school. I had to be taken out. The other students would bite me. They couldn’t deal with undiluted beauty. Children are irrational. I’m an artist. I dip my fingers in poison and make beautiful things.

Harry Kondoleon, Rococo

Eve Gordon and Frances McDormand in the 1981 Yale production of "Rococo"

CHILDREN

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.

— Alice Miller
