Family Quarrels Like Splits in the Skin

Family quarrels are bitter things.  They don't go by any rules.  They're not like aches or wounds; they're more like splits in the skin that won't heal because there's not enough material.

- F. Scott Fitzgerald, "Babylon Revisited," short story in the Saturday Evening Post, February 21, 1931.
