Heinlein Quote of the Month (October 2005)

In sober truth no person can ever be truly responsible for another human being. Each of us faces up to the universe alone, and the universe is what it is and doesn't soften the rules for any of us -- and eventually, in the long run, the universe always wins and takes all. But that doesn't make it any easier when we
try to be responsible for another -- as you have, as I have -- and then look back and see how we could have done it better.

- Uncle Tom in Podkayne of Mars.
