Famous quotes containing the words series and/or postwar:

    In the order of literature, as in others, there is no act that is not the coronation of an infinite series of causes and the source of an infinite series of effects.
    Jorge Luis Borges (1899–1986)

    Fashions change, and with the new psychoanalytical perspective of the postwar period [WWII], child rearing became enshrined as the special responsibility of mothers ... any shortcoming in adult life was now seen as rooted in the failure of mothering during childhood.
    Sylvia Ann Hewitt (20th century)
