Debt to Parents

from A Civil Campaign (1999) by Lois McMaster BujoldRating: 3.9     (45 ratings)

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.
