Parents and Children…
― Albert Einstein
“Because of their size, parents may be difficult to discipline properly.” ~P.J. O’Rourke
“For now she need not think of anybody. She could be herself, by herself. And that was what now she often felt the need of – to think; well not even to think. To be silent; to be alone. All the being and the doing, expansive, glittering, vocal, evaporated; and one shrunk, with a sense of solemnity, to being oneself, a wedge-shaped core of darkness, something invisible to others… and this self having shed its attachments was free for the strangest adventures.”
― Virginia Woolf, To the Lighthouse
“From birth to age 18 a girl needs good parents.
From 18 to 35 she needs good looks.
From 35 to 55 she needs a good personality.
From 55 on, she needs good cash.”
“Children begin by loving their parents;
as they grow older they judge them;
sometimes they forgive them.”
― Oscar Wilde
“When I was a kid my parents moved a lot, but I always found them.”
― Rodney Dangerfield
