  • "Letting go" ...implies generosity, a talent a good mother needs in abundance. Separation is not loss, it is not cutting yourself off from someone you love. It is giving freedom to the other person to be herself before she becomes resentful, stunted, and suffocated by being tied too close. Separation is not the end of love. It creates love.
    Nancy Friday (20th century), U.S. author. My Mother, My Self, ch. 3 (1977).
