QUOTE: Every family needs its backlogs of jokes by which to
warm its heart through the bleak times, and its special
vocabulary and proverbs that grow from shared expereinces.
These are heirlooms, individualized and handed down like the
monogrammed coin silver teaspoons. They are a manifestation
of what Robert Lewis Stevenson in his prayer calls "the love
that unites us, the hope with which we expect the morrow."
