"The definition of being a modern person is to examine yourself, to reflect on yourself and to be a self-knowledgeable person."
"My home was one in which words were not used very often. With my parents the only words that were exchanged were in connection with assigning labor. "This is what you have to do, and this is what has to be done." So words were very, very sparse. And in fact, anybody that used too many words was automatically suspect."
