"Do you imagine a case like this will help my professional reputation? One more would ruin me—ruin anybody."
Let me see my child!
Here is your son
What in gods name is that?!?!?!
Mr. Button eventually learns to deal with his sons condition but not with much tension and embarrassment, Benjamin gets younger through the years.
although his physical condition had improved since the early days of his life, Benjamin was to continue to dye his hair. He was to make a better attempt to play with boys of his own age. He was not to wear his spectacles or carry a cane in the street.
I didn't choose to be like this. I don't know why i can't just be myself.
Because I will not be embarrassed because you are a freak
Benjamin falls in love although every one agreed that it was "criminal" for a lovely girl who could have married any beau in Bal- timore to throw herself into the arms of a man who was assuredly fifty.
"that I'd rather marry a man of fifty and be taken care of than many a man of thirty and take care of him."
Benjamin 's condition turned into a curse. Everyone he knows is growing old and aged and he is just getting younger and beautiful. his wife no longer looks appealing.
"She was a woman of forty now, with a faint skirmish line of gray hairs in her head. The sight depressed him."
