    Although my parents have never been the kind to hint around about grandchildren, I can think of no better tribute to them than giving them some.... I can’t help thinking that the cycle is not complete until I can introduce them to a child of their child. And I can think of no better comfort when they are gone than to know that something of them lives on, not only in me but in my children.
    —Anne Cassidy. “Every Child Should Have a Father But....,” McCall’s (March 1985)

    Because the birthday of my life
    Is come, my love is come to me.
    Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)

    —Paula Nelson (b. 1945)

    Communists have always played an active role in the fight by colonial countries for their freedom, because the short- term objects of Communism would always correspond with the long-term objects of freedom movements.
