"We must remove
the children from the crude influence of their families.

"[T]he most vulnerable children in our society ... are in our care; we, the state, are their parents"
"The first thing

"Above all things,

"Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds!
when the morning is light, they practice it, because it is in the power of their hand. ...
So they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage"
is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through
whom they come!
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea,
than that he should offend one of these little ones"
"Let none of you suffer ... as a busybody in other
