For the last quote of this week’s mini challenge, here’s one from Heinlein’s famous Stranger in a Strange Land: 📚💬 #mbmay

This quote from Heinlein’s Time Enough for Love seems appropriate (or something) on my birthday: 🙃📚💬 #mbmay

Delusions are often functional. A mother’s opinions about her children’s beauty, intelligence, goodness, et cetera ad nauseam, keep her from drowning them at birth.
