I recently finished reading a book called Emily and Einstein. It's a fairly decent beach read sort of book, but the following quote made an impression on me. When I came across that particular sentence while I was reading the book, it literally had me stopping in my tracks and I had to re-read it a couple of times. Made me think of the ducklings following their mother at the Peadbody Hotels. Enjoy!
"We are all imprinted by our mothers, that imprint luring us in like a friend or sometimes an enemy, causing us to become a carbon copy or a determinedly made original. We either embrace or reject, though the luckiest among us never realize there is an imprint at all."
