Abandonment Quotations

Bill O'Reilly

They say that abandonment is a wound that never heals. I say only that an abandoned child never forgets.
Mario Balotelli

When I was sixteen I started acting, and I also started to embrace my tradition and culture. I had a young medicine man interpret for me what it is to be an Indian.

Adam Beach
