“There is no growth without real feeling. Children not loved for who they are do not learn how to love themselves. Their growth is an exercise in pleasing others, not in expanding through experience. As adults, they must learn to nurture their own lost child.”

~ Marion Woodman, Coming Home to Myself: Reflections for Nurturing a Woman’s Body and Soul
