„Everything has to be at once for six-month-old puppies, six-year-old children, and reformers of any age.“

A Slave is a Slave (1962)
Contexto: Oh, he won't think of it in those terms. He'll be preventing me from sabotaging the Emancipation. He doesn't want to wait three generations; he wants to free them at once. Everything has to be at once for six-month-old puppies, six-year-old children, and reformers of any age.
