A Quote by James Agee on children, circumstances, god, goodness, ideas, life, parenthood, and responsibility

In every child who is born, under no matter what circumstances, and of no matter what parents, the potentiality of the human race is born again: and in him, too, once more, and of each of us, our terrific responsibility toward human life; toward the utmost idea of goodness, of the horror of terror, and of God.

James Agee (1909 - 1955)
