To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.
He that raises a large family does, indeed, while he lives to observe them, stand a broader mark for sorrow; but then he stands a broader mark for pleasure too.
Once you agree upon the price you and your family must pay for success, it enables you to ignore the minor hurts, the opponent’s pressure, and the temporary failures.
So live that you wouldn’t be ashamed to sell the family parrot to the town gossip.
You threaten my son, you threaten me.
From the movie “The Blind Side”
A man should never neglect his family for business.
We believed in our idea – a family park where parents and children could have fun- together.
All men are children, and of one family. The same tale sends them all to bed, and wakes them in the morning.
Henry David Thoreau
A happy family is but an earlier heaven.
George Bernard Shaw
Perhaps the greatest social service that can be rendered by anybody to the country and to mankind is to bring up a family.
George Bernard Shaw
I cannot remember a moment in my life when I have not felt the love of my family. We were a family that would have killed for each other – and we still are.
Dwight L. Moody
The happiest moments of my life have been the few which I have passed at home in the bosom of my family.
Love, by reason of its passion, destroys the in-between which relates us to and seperates us from others. As long as its spell lasts, the only in-between which can insert iteself between two lovers is the child, love’s own product.
There is no friendship, no love, like that of the parent for the child.
Henry Ward Beecher
It used to take courage-indeed, it was the act of courage par excellence-to leave the comforts of home and family and go out into the world seeking adventure. Today there are fewer places to discover, and the real adventure is to stay at home.
Alvaro De Solva
Sometimes our hearts get tangled
And our souls a little off-kilter
Friends and family can set us right
And help guide us back to the light.
