Men are what their mothers made them.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Mommy smoked but she didn't want us to. She saw smoke coming out of the barn one time, so we got whipped.
Morality and its victim, the mother - what a terrible picture! Is there indeed anything more terrible, more criminal, than our glorified sacred function of motherhood?
Mother is far too clever to understand anything she does not like.
I ask people why they have deer heads on their walls. They always say because it's such a beautiful animal. There you go. I think my mother is attractive, but I have photographs of her.
