[1] James Lord, Six Exceptional Women: Further Memoirs, page 270, a discussion with his father in 1942: "My father asked what was troubling me. I replied that my problem was more or less the sort commonplace among boys of my age. So it must have to do with girls, said my father. Well, no it didn't, I told him with great difficulty, my trouble was that what most boys felt towards girls I felt towards other boys. My father made no more comment than to say, I see."
