My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it.
Mark Twain quotes
I think, at a child's birth, if a mother could ask a fairy godmother to endow it with the most useful gift, that gift would be curiosity.
Eleanor Roosevelt quotes
Nothing I've ever done has given me more joys and rewards than being a father to my children.
Bill Cosby quotes
A family is a place where minds come in contact with one another. If these minds love one another the home will be as beautiful as a flower garden. But if these minds get out of harmony with one another it is like a storm that plays havoc with the garden.
The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other's life. Rarely do members of one family grow up under the same roof.
Richard Bach quotes
I felt in my life very suffocated and smothered by my circumstance. Your life becomes what you believe. I was living in a house with my mom and my younger brother and we were all sharing rent and wasn't really making rent. Didn't get to eat, I scraped food off of people's plates where I waitressed, I stole toilet paper from fast food restaurants... I got fired from my last job and that was it. My mom was like we're just going to do what we love, and we're gonna just have faith. So I lived in my van, and she lived in her van. And I decided, fine, I'll die, but I want to go to college. I'll die, I don't want to go to work and waitress. I want to do what I love only. I love singing, I never really thought I could make a living at it, it was dreaming. Zen, Buddha, God, Jesus, Trees, whatever is out there, what I want is. I want to make a living doing what I love, you know?
Jewel Kilcher quotes
My father taught me to work; he did not teach me to love it. I never did like to work, and I don't deny it. I'd rather read, tell stories, crack jokes, talk, laugh - anything but work.
Abraham Lincoln quotes
Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.
George F. Burns quotes
A man can't make a place for himself in the sun if he keeps taking refuge under the family tree.
Helen Keller quotes
The Family is the Country of the heart. There is an angel in the Family who, by the mysterious influence of grace, of sweetness, and of love, renders the fulfilment of duties less wearisome, sorrows less bitter. The only pure joys unmixed with sadness
Giuseppe Mazzini quotes
