Another excerpt from Eddie Cantor‘s autobiography The Way I See It, © 1959:
But the first world they (children) know is still the most important. If his home is happy– if a kid is cared about, not just for– he can cope. When I see the “Ten Most Wanted” lists– the WANTED posters– I always have this thought. If we’d made them feel wanted earlier, they wouldn’t be WANTED now.
I got this book for 50¢ at a charity sale, and truthfully had very small expectations for it, but it’s quickly becoming one of my favorites.
