"Adults have learned to rationalize. This means using the skill of argument as a form of reasoning in the service of making ourselves feel better, justifying ourselves, or explaining away."

Joseph Gold. Read For Your Life: Literature as a Life Support System. Fitzhenry and Whiteside: Markham, 1990. pg 103
