Parents Quotes

Schoolmasters and parents exist to be grown out of.

Saving is a very fine thing. Especially when your parents have done it for you

Winston Churchill

We meet on the broad pathway of good faith and good will; no advantage shall be taken on either side, but all shall be openness and love. I will not call you children, -- for parents sometimes chide their children too severely; nor brothers only, -- for brothers differ. The friendship between me and you I will not compare to a chain; for that the rains might rust, or the falling tree might break. We are the same as if one man's body were to be divided into two parts, we are all one flesh and blood.

William Penn

When parents put gold into the hands of youth, when they should put a rod under their girdle--when instead of awe they make them past grace, and leave them rich executors of goods, and poor executors of godliness, then it is no marvel that the son being left rich by his father's will, becomes reckless by his own will.

John Lyly

They are stumped because they want to make changes, but they don't know how to get their kids to like healthy foods. This book has the answers.

The pregnancy is just evidence of sex, ... What they really don't want their parents to know is that they are sexually active.

Carol Sanger

All conservatives are such from personal defects. They have been effeminated by position or nature, born halt and blind, through LUXURY of their parents, and can only, like invalids, act on the defensive.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

A baby is born into this world in a state of fear. Total paranoia and awareness. He sees the world with eyes not used yet. As he grows up, his parents lay all this stuff on him. They tell him, when they should be letting him tell them. Let the children lead you.

Charles Manson

The longer we live the more we think and the higher the value we put on friendship and tenderness towards parents and friends.

Samuel Johnson

I have drawn my whole life. My parents were in the tapestry restoration business, and as a young girl, I would draw in the missing parts of the tapestry that needed to be re-woven. My ability to draw made me indispensable to my parents.

Louise Bourgeois

Dick Cavett

Feminists have often claimed a moral equivalence for sexual and racial prejudice. There are certain affinities and one or two of these affinities are mildly and paradoxically encouraging. Sexism is like racism: we all feel such impulses. Our parents feel them more strongly than we feel them; our children, we trust, will feel them less strongly than we feel them. People don\'t change or improve much, but they do evolve. It is very slow.

Martin Amis

More than ever, we as parents and a nation must do something about the growth of obesity in our children. We must do more than just talk, we must be concerned enough to act.
