I think with a lot of daughters it's impossible to see your mother cry without becoming overwhelmed with sadness yourself or maybe crying yourself. Because even during periods when you're not getting along with your mother, there's this kind of connection, there's this emotional connection I think a lot of us have felt where it's just...if your mother's crying you can't...you are too. It's like, it's impossible not to.
--Terry Gross in an interview with Ruth Reichel
