“My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her. Wait… where do these feelings come from? Why do I think so highly of my mother? Is it possible that I was sexually abused as a child and therefore emotionally compensate by suppressing those memories with grandeur delusions of love and loyalty? I feel so frightened. So very frightened…”

- George Washington
