Book 13 Page 15

 

Big boys donít cry

 

All little boys want to be just like the big boys,

so if big boys are not suppose to cry

then little boys wonít want to cry either.

 

And if little and big boys donít cry

then all grown up men wonít cry.

For all men are simply the result of their boyhood makeup.

 

And Oh! What a tearless,  loveless and expressionless world it will be.
