Mark Twain in Wikipedia
The child is to the pedophile as the bottle is to the alcoholic. This is often being treated for a cure rather than as a chronic disorder that needs follow up.
Our elevation must be the result of self-efforts and work of our own hands. No other human power can accomplish it. If we but determine it shall be so, it will be so.
( - January 24, 1885)
The image of myself which I try to create in my own mind in order that I may love myself is very different from the image which I try to create in the minds of others in order that they may love me
W. H. Auden
