Quote of the Day

A person once said, "It's true.  Why do I think it would kill my parents if I showed them what I really felt for them?  I have the right to feel what I feel.  It's not a question of retaliation, but of honesty.  Why is honesty upheld as an abstract concept in religious instruction at school but prohibited in the relationship with our parents?"

-- Alice Miller, The Body Never Lies, p. 116-117
