Quote of the Moment:

"...[N]othing that I previously experienced warned me about the invasion into your life that having children entails. The immense intimacy you have with them, the way in which your own temperament and mood are, so to speak, woven into theirs, such that your own worst sides are no longer something you can keep to yourself, hidden, but seem to take shape outside you, and are then hurled back. The same of course applies to your best sides."
--KARL OVE KNAUSGAARD, "MY STRUGGLE," Book 1
