“They’re all mistakes, children. Filthy, nasty things. Glad I never was one.”
“I cannot, for the life of me, understand why small children take so long to grow up. I think they do it deliberately, just to annoy me.”
“I have never been able to understand why small children are so disgusting. They’re the bane of my life. They’re like insects: they should be got rid of as early as possible.”
