Personal Quotes (1)

[Daytime TV magazine, Feb 1972, in an article about his then wife, Lisa Blake Richards, on the subject of when they will start a family] My family thought having children was a social obligation, like keeping the front yard neat, or contributing to Disabled Veterans. They implanted in me the unalterable suspicion that people who do not have children are shirking their duty. I am so brainwashed that, if someone asks me if I have children, I wince and begin blathering about how I intend to any day now. A 'childless couple' in my family could only mean two things: they were either tragically blighted in some biological way or they were lazy selfish people who thought only of themselves. Lisa and I are not faced with an empty Garden of Eden in which the injunction to 'increase and multiply' is rather urgent.
