„You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn.“

—  Lois McMaster Bujold, Vorkosigan Saga

Vorkosigan Saga, A Civil Campaign (1999)
Kontext: You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
