    Here is the paradox: What children take from us, they give. When we are not totally “free,” we learn how to cope with a smaller world, less time, less luxury,... We become people who feel more deeply, question more deeply, hurt more deeply and love more deeply.
    Sonia Taitz (20th century)

    The children are all crying in their pens
    and the surf carries their cries away.
    They are old men who have seen too much,
    their mouths are full of dirty clothes,
    the tongues poverty, tears like pus.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
