I believe that quotation #190 about childhood is from Milton ERICKSON...

"It's never too late to have a happy childhood" is also attributed to Berkeley Breathed, Robert White, Claudia Black, Bruce Williamson. Those authors made the assertion after 1980, after Tom Robbins had written it in "Still Life with Woodpecker". Milton H. Erickson is quoted by his followers but I could not find the original source.
