When I go home, she wants me to be a good father and a good husband. And everything else is secondary to that.
~ Barack Obama
The family is the corner stone of our society. More than any other force it shapes the attitude, the hopes, the ambitions, and the values of the child. And when the family collapses it is the children that are usually damaged. When it happens on a massive scale the community itself is crippled. So, unless we work to strengthen the family, to create conditions under which most parents will stay together, all the rest - schools, playgrounds, and public assitance, and private concern - will never be enough.
~ Lyndon Baines Johnson

It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.

Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
~ Ed Howe

Don't hold your parents up to contempt. After all, you are their son, and it is just possible that you may take after them.

The greatest thing in family life is to take a hint when a hint is intended-and not to take a hint when a hint isn't intended.
~ Robert Frost
