    The child hand raised to reach the holding hand. Hold the old holding hand. Hold and be held.
    Samuel Beckett (1906–1989)

    Conditional love is love that is turned off and on....Some parents only show their love after a child has done something that pleases them. “I love you, honey, for cleaning your room!” Children who think they need to earn love become people pleasers, or perfectionists. Those who are raised on conditional love never really feel loved.
    Louise Hart (20th century)

    But when a man poured fish into a pile,
    It seemed they raised their little silver heads,
    And sang
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
