"A modern young mother we know locked horns with her Dalton Schooled six-year-old daughter last week, and just at the crucial point of the impasse the child blurted, "I'm going to run away and I'm going over to the Guggenheim Museum and I'm never coming home again!"

From "Talk of the Town," the New Yorker, April 20, 1960, p. 32.
