"For a wonderful physical tie binds the parents to the children and- by some sad, strange irony- it does not bind us children to our parents. For if it did, we could answer their love, not with gratitude but with equal love. Life would lose much of its pathos and much of its squalor, and we might be wonderfully happy"
E.M. Forster- Where Angels Fear to Tread
— Rupert Graves, Actor (via bestbandquotes)
