    Artists the minute they set up as artists,
    Before, that is, they are themselves accepted,
    And boys the minute they get out of college.

    The candidate tells us we are the “backbone of the State,” and we know that it is true, not because we are possessed of certain endowed virtues, but because we are a majority and have the vote.
    —Federal Writers’ Project Of The Wor, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    The parents who wish to lead a quiet life I would say: Tell your children that they are very naughty—much naughtier than most children; point to the young people of some acquaintances as models of perfection, and impress your own children with a deep sense of their own inferiority.

    Samuel Butler (1835–1902)
