Rejection is the bed the iconoclast has prepared for himself.
(Gerry Spence, How to Argue and Win Every Time, p.145)

The greatest terror a child can have is that he is not loved, and rejection is the hell he fears. I think everyone in the world to a large or small extent has felt rejection. And with rejection comes anger, and with anger some kind of crime in revenge for the rejection, and with the crime guilt — and there is the story of mankind.
(John Steinbeck, East of Eden, 1952)
