Famous quotes containing the words ghosts and/or steel:

    We find that even the parents who justify spanking to themselves are defensive and embarrassed about it....I suspect that deep in the memory of every parent are the feelings that had attended his own childhood spankings, the feelings of humiliation, of helplessness, of submission through fear. The parent who finds himself spanking his own child cannot dispel the ghosts of his own childhood.
    Selma H. Fraiberg (20th century)

    O God of battles, steel my soldiers’ hearts.
    Possess them not with fear. Take from them now
    The sense of reckoning, ere th’ opposed numbers
    Pluck their hearts from them.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
