    Friends serve central functions for children that parents do not, and they play a critical role in shaping children’s social skills and their sense of identity. . . .

    Zick Rubin (20th century)

    It’s easy to forget how central the French people are in everything we mean when we say Europe.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)

    For us necessity is not as of old an image without us, with whom we can do warfare; it is a magic web woven through and through us, like that magnetic system of which modern science speaks, penetrating us with a network subtler than our subtlest nerves, yet bearing in it the central forces of the world.
    Walter Pater (1839–1894)
