Quote of the Day

This desire to be different from the way we are so as to make life easier for our parents in old age and perhaps finally receive love from them is understandable.  But it is in direct opposition to the genuine need, supported by the body, to be true to our own selves.  I believe that self-respect will come of its own accord once this need can be gratified.

-- Alice Miller, The Body Never Lies, p. 133
