by EDWARD M. HALLOWELL, M.D. Adult and Child Psychiatrist and Author (Review 2006)

Childhood ought to be a time in which you find out what you love to do, what you are good at, and where you plug into the world most enthusiastically. As tempting as it can be, no one should presume to program a childhood as if its outcome could already be envisioned. It ought to be its own unpredictable, unique time: a time of discovery, rife with surprises, mistakes, disappointments, and triumphs.

by ANDREW SOLOMON Author (Review 2014)

This appeared in Time magazine in 1966, when I was two years old:
Even in purely nonreligious terms, homosexuality represents a misuse of the sexual faculty. It is a pathetic little second-rate substitute for reality, a pitiable flight from life. As such, it deserves fairness, compassion, understanding and, when possible, treatment. But it deserves no encouragement, no glamorization, no rationalization, no fake status as minority martyrdom, no sophistry about simple differences in taste—and, above all, no pretense that it is anything but a pernicious sickness.
