“You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world, and you believe you are living. Then you read a book (Lady Chatterley, for instance), or you take a trip, or you talk with Richard, and you discover that you are not living, that you are hibernating.
The symptoms of hibernating are easily detectable: first, restlessness. The second symptom(when hibernating becomes dangerous and might degenerate into death): absence of pleasure.

They drive a car.
They picnic with their families. They raise children.
And then some shock treatment takes place, a person, a book, a song, and it awakens them and saves them from death.”
~ Anais Nin French born American Author of novels and short stories, 1903-1977

Cost of raising Children I have seen repeatedly the breakdown of the cost of raising a child, but this is the first time I have seen the rewards listed this way.

That doesn’t even touch college tuition. But $160,140 isn’t so bad if>>>
