207. Parents often transfer physical likeness to their children; do they also transfer moral likeness?

“No, because they have different souls or spirits. The body may yield a body, but the spirit does not yield any other spirit. The descendants of the same race share nothing other than blood.”

a) What causes the moral likeness that sometimes exists between parents and children?

“The influence of moral sympathy, which brings together spirits with similar thoughts and inclinations.”
