From "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Cardassians (#2.5)"
Mister O'Brien, I know very little about Human culture, I don't know how you view the family.
We'd do almost anything to protect our families. I've a daughter myself; she's four - the same age your son was when you lost him.
Then I expect you can imagine what I'm feeling right now. On Cardassia, family is everything. We care for our parents and children with equal devotion. In some households, four generations eat at the same table. Family... is everything.
