To maintain a joyful family requires much from both the parents and the children. Each member of the family has to become, in a special way, the servant of the others.
Pope John Paul II quotes
Family life is full of major and minor crises - the ups and downs of health, success and failure in career, marriage, and divorce - and all kinds of characters. It is tied to places and events and histories. With all of these felt details, life etches itself into memory and personality. It's difficult to imagine anything more nourishing to the soul.
Thomas More quotes
To open avenues to political place and power for all classes of women would cause [the] humble labors of the family and school to be still more undervalued and shunned.
Catharine Esther Beecher quotes
You live in a country that makes it harder to raise children than any other country in the world. You vote for me and I'll give you family values.
Bill Clinton quotes
Those who think the family has had its day should think again.
Eva Burrows quotes
Italians come to ruin most generally in three ways: women, gambling, and farming. My family chose the slowest one.
Pope John XXIII quotes
There did Zakariya pray to his Lord; he said: My Lord! grant me from Thee good offspring; surely Thou art the Hearer of prayer. (The Family of Imran 3.38)
And he enjoined on his family prayer and almsgiving, and was one in whom his Lord was well pleased. (Marium 19.55)
My definition [of a philosopher] is of a man up in a balloon, with his family and friends holding the ropes which confine him to earth and trying to haul him down.
Louisa May Alcott quotes
No matter how many communes anybody invents, the family always creeps back.
Margaret Mead quotes
