Quote of the Day

The answer is that we can never do the right thing as long as we are out to please someone else.  We can only be the people we are, and we cannot force our parents to love us.  There are parents who can love only the mask their child wears.  When the child removes that mask, they frequently say ... "All I want is for you to be the way you were before."

-- Alice Miller, The Body Never Lies, p. 115
