family

Respectable means rich, and decent means poor. I should die if I heard my family called decent.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The child learns more of the virtues needed in modern life-of fairness, of justice, of comradeship, of collective interest and action-in a common school than can be taught in the most perfect family circle.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Temperament lies behind mood; behind will, lies the fate of character. Then behind both, the influence of family the tyranny of culture; and finally the power of climate and environment; and we are free, only to the extent we rise above these.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The family is the school of duties... founded on love.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A farmer who had a quarrelsome family called his sons and told them to lay a bunch of sticks before him. Then, after laying the sticks parallel to one another and binding them, he challenged his sons, one after one, to pick up the bundle and break it. They all tried, but in vain. Then, untying the bundle, he gave them the sticks to break one by one. This they did with the greatest ease. Then said the father, Thus, my sons, as long as you remain united, you are a match for anything, but differ and separate, and you are undone.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our notion of the perfect society embraces the family as its center and ornament, and this paradise is not secure until children appear to animate and complete the picture.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A family on the throne is an interesting idea. It brings down the pride of sovereignty to the level of petty life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The love for work needs to be re-enthroned in our lives. Every family should have a plan for work that touches the life of each family member so that this eternal principle will be ingrained in their lives.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The son will run away from the family not at eighteen but at twelve, emancipated by his gluttonous precocity; he will fly not to seek heroic adventures, not to deliver a beautiful prisoner from a tower, not to immortalize a garret with sublime thoughts, but to found a business, to enrich himself and to compete with his infamous papa.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The Bible is the great family chronicle of the Jews.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Only solitary men know the full joys of friendship. Others have their family --but to a solitary and an exile his friends are everything.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The family is the test of freedom; because the family is the only thing that the free man makes for himself and by himself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When a man has done his best, has given his all, and in the process supplied the needs of his family and his society, that man has made a habit of succeeding.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The family is the nucleus of civilization.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Friendship is held to be the severest test of character. It is easy, we think, to be loyal to a family and clan, whose blood is in your own veins. Love between a man and a woman is founded on the mating instinct and is not free from desire and self-seeking. But to have a friend and to be true under any and all trials is the mark of a man!More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Like all the best families, we have our share of eccentricities, of impetuous and wayward youngsters and of family disagreements.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I grew up in a very large family in a very small house. I never slept alone until after I was married.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I am the family face; flesh perishes, I live on, projecting trait and trace through time to times anon, and leaping from place to place over oblivion.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
This is an age of intellectual sauces, of essence, of distillation. We have conclusions without deductions, abridgments of history and abridgments of science without leading facts. We have animals for literature, Cabinet Encyclopaedias, Family Libraries, Diffusion Societies, and heaven knows what else! What is all this for? Not to add knowledge to the learned, but to tell points to the ignorant, without giving them the trouble to acquire the links. Oh! it is sad work. And the result will be injurious to all classes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The striking point about our model family is not simply the compete-compete, consume-consume style of life it urges us to follow. The striking point, in the face of all the propaganda, is how few Americans actually live this way.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Wherever the citizen becomes indifferent to his fellows, so will the husband be to his wife, and the father of a family toward the members of his household.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My family begins with me, your family ends with you.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Growing up human is uniquely a matter of social relations rather than biology. What we learn from connections within the family takes the place of instincts that program the behavior of animals; which raises the question, how good are these connections?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

When I do something in my family because I really enjoy it, then my duty has become my pleasure. And it is a pleasure for all the people around me.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Having a thirteen-year-old in the family is like having a general-admission ticket to the movies, radio and TV. You get to understand that the glittering new arts of our civilization are directed to the teen-agers, and by their suffrage they stand or fall.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
With a new familiarity and a flesh-creeping homeliness entirely of this unreal, materialistic world, where all sentiment is coarsely manufactured and advertised in colossal sickly captions, disguised for the sweet tooth of a monstrous baby called the Public, the family as it is, broken up on all hands by the agency of feminist and economic propaganda, reconstitutes itself in the image of the state.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I would rather start a family than finish one.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The Family is the Country of the heart. There is an angel in the Family who, by the mysterious influence of grace, of sweetness, and of love, renders the fulfillment of duties less wearisome, sorrows less bitter. The only pure joys unmixed with sadness which it is given to man to taste upon earth are, thanks to this angel, the joys of the Family.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
O my Brothers! love your Country. Our Country is our home, the home which God has given us, placing therein a numerous family which we love and are loved by, and with which we have a more intimate and quicker communion of feeling and thought than with others; a family which by its concentration upon a given spot, and by the homogeneous nature of its elements, is destined for a special kind of activity.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If you have learned how to disagree without being disagreeable, then you have discovered the secrete of getting along -- whether it be business, family relations, or life itself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

In every dispute between parent and child, both cannot be right, but they may be, and usually are, both wrong. It is this situation which gives family life its peculiar hysterical charm.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Those old faces, in Pasadena, California, and Tucson, Arizona, and Dallas, crumpling in hatred and fear at the mention of the United Nations or those liberals in government who constitute for them the fifth column of communism, yearn for an America that is as far from the society of the present as is the extended family system in village India.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A king is a thing men have made for their own sakes, for quietness sake. Just as in a family one man is appointed to buy the meat.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Absence is one of the most useful ingredients of family life, and to dose it rightly is an art like any other.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Happy or unhappy, families are all mysterious. We have only to imagine how differently we would be described --and will be, after our deaths --by each of the family members who believe they know us.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I simply contend that the middle-class ideal which demands that people be affectionate, respectable, honest and content, that they avoid excitements and cultivate serenity is the ideal that appeals to me, it is in short the ideal of affectionate family life, of honorable business methods.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

In the middle classes the gifted son of a family is always the poorest -- usually a writer or artist with no sense for speculation -- and in a family of peasants, where the average comfort is just over penury, the gifted son sinks also, and is soon a tramp on the roadside.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We who have lived before railways were made belong to another world. It was only yesterday, but what a gulf between now and then! Then was the old world. Stage-coaches, more or less swift, riding-horses, pack-horses, highwaymen, knights in armor, Norman invaders, Roman legions, Druids, Ancient Britons painted blue, and so forth -- all these belong to the old period. But your railroad starts the new era, and we of a certain age belong to the new time and the old one. We who lived before railways, and survive out of the ancient world, are like Father Noah and his family out of the Ark.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
