“Its not that we have too much mother, but too little father. We cant forgive our mothers for taking the place of our fathers until we are ready to see that the point of a mans life is to be a father and a mentor, and we cant do that because we dont know how we would be a father or a mentor when we never had one.”
—Frank Pittman (20th century)
