And I Quote… October 10

And-I-QuoteIt is sometimes supposed that wrath denotes absence of love, or is the opposite of love. But the opposite of love is not wrath, but indifference, as most parents know well. The more one loves a child, the more one may show anger at the child’s attempt at what would bring self-destruction.
