“My mother later blamed the Cold War and the threat of nuclear extinction for all her shortcomings as a mother. She said the state of fear she lived in during that period froze over all other feelings.

I didn't accept it as a valid excuse at the time, but now I'm older I understand better the crippling consequences of mental health issues.”
Glenn Haybittle, Scorched Earth

“Women, quite rightly, have a scorn for men who act only with hindsight.”

“If you're learning any craft my advice would always be to emulate and aspire to a master. Sure, you're placing an obstacle field in your path, but what is happiness after all if not the overcoming of obstacles?”
