“Let’s take a young kid—let’s take a three-, four-, five-year old kid: Can you possibly imagine a child of this age walking along by himself and not having people look after him? Well, that isn’t any strange and peculiar urge so much as it is people like the bright face of the world they see reflected on the child’s face. The child can see a bright world for them.
“If you yourself wish to bring to people a feeling of security in your presence and a feeling of pleasure that you are there, then you reflect the bright face of the world to them.”
L. Ron Hubbard
