    The good enough parent, in addition to being convinced that whatever his child does, he does it because at that moment he is convinced this is the best he can do, will also ask himself: “What in the world would make me act as my child acts at this moment? And if I felt forced to act this way, what would make me feel better about it?”
    Bruno Bettelheim (20th century)

    The child knows only that he engages in play because it is enjoyable. He isn’t aware of his need to play—a need which has its source in the pressure of unsolved problems. Nor does he know that his pleasure in playing comes from a deep sense of well-being that is the direct result of feeling in control of things, in contrast to the rest of his life, which is managed by his parents or other adults.
    —Bruno Bettelheim (20th century)

    It may be you fear more to deliver judgment upon me than I fear judgment.
    —Giordano Bruno (1548–1600)
