when you punish children you create liars
if you don’t like children, stay away from children
do not complicate their lives any further
your life is already too complicated if you’re an average human being:
you don’t know what you’re doing half of the time
if you do know what you’re doing, you don’t know why you’re doing it
if you know why you’re doing it, you don’t understand the full depth of the implications of it
if you think you understand the full depth of the implications of it, you don’t.
it is possible to have the body of an adult
and all the hallmarks of autonomy
with the appearance of self-reliance
and be incapable of doing anything for your own good.
you will die wanting, selfish, desolate inside
all of your clockwork stuck ticking at the fifty-ninth second.
