"I gave my three year old daughter some worthless coins, and jokingly told her that she was rich. She went and hid the coins away, and I forgot all about them. Around the same time, my oldest daughter got a bunch of money from her aunts and uncles for her birthday. A few months later, we needed money for food, and I asked my oldest daughter if we could use some of her birthday money. She refused. I almost started crying, because I thought then that I had completely failed as a parent. But suddenly, my youngest daughter appeared, and gave me back the handful of coins that I had given her."

(from As I Lay Dying. In 1986 the book was banned after a mother read the novel, initially given to her child for a school assignment, and determined that it was “secular humanism.” She contacted the school body soon after demanding that “protection from Faulkner’s dangerous novel” be required for all students. It was banned one month later.)
