    The photograph shows a happy octet ready to hold anybody up to contempt. Good saying, though.

    Reblogged this on necltr and commented:
    If some children knew in their youth what their parents went through in order to bring them up well, they would probably be better behaved. However, they won’t have that information until it is too late, that is, until they have their own children. Karma. What goes around comes around, and we all get dizzy.
