The Only Thing in the World
"Man is a child, afraid of fatherhood; man is a child, and not a father. Man is an artist who needs all the care, all the warmth for himself, as my father did. There is no end to his needs. He needs faith, indulgence, humor; he needs worship, good cooking, mended socks, errands, a hostess, a mistress, a mother, a sister, a secretary, a friend. He needs to be the only thing in the world."
