Parent quotes by Carre Otis
#1. When you become a parent, it's not all about you anymore. #Quote by Carre Otis
Parent quotes by T.E. Lawrence
#2. Isn't it true that the fault of birth rests somewhat on the child? I believe it's we who led our parents on to bear us, and it's our unborn children who make our flesh itch. #Quote by T.E. Lawrence
Parent quotes by Neale Donald Walsch
#3. I have not said your values are wrong. But neither are they right. They are simply judgments. Assessments. Decisions. For the most part, they are decisions made not by you, but by someone else. Your parents, perhaps. Your religion. Your teachers, historians, politicians. #Quote by Neale Donald Walsch
Parent quotes by Malorie Blackman
#4. There is a saying: 'The child is parent to the adult', which means whatever happens to you as a child or teenager affects the adult you become. You are forged in your history. And fiction is an incredibly important force in shaping children, and that's why fiction needs to be diverse. #Quote by Malorie Blackman
Parent quotes by Alice Miller
#5. Child abuse is still sanctioned - indeed, held in high regard - in our society as long as it is defined as child-rearing. It is a tragic fact that parents beat their children in order to escape the emotions from how they were treated by their own parents. #Quote by Alice Miller
Parent quotes by Oscar Wilde
#6. For what are called criminals nowadays are not criminals at all. Starvation, and not sin, is the parent of modern crime. That indeed is the reason why our criminals are, as a class, so absolutely uninteresting from any psychological point of view. They are not marvellous Macbeths and terrible Vautrins. They are merely what ordinary, respectable, commonplace people would be if they had not got enough to eat. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Parent quotes by Suzy Kassem
#7. The parent is protector and trainer, but never the ultimate teacher. Every parent is responsible for teaching their kid basic moral conduct, manners, the difference between love and hate, and right from wrong. However, after maturity, the child must set off to seek knowledge on their own. Religion is never to be forced. And you cannot threaten your child with hell and tell them your religion is the only right way. There is no one right way. The many ways to the Creator are as varied as the colors of a rainbow. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Parent quotes by Jennifer Coburn
#8. Ask any single parent whether they'd like an extra set of hands around the house and they'd take it." They'd take it if it weren't the set of hands belonging to the rat bastard who asked for a divorce the same day the pregnancy test read positive. #Quote by Jennifer Coburn
Parent quotes by Timothy J. Russert
#9. Growing up, I didn't know about families who were missing a father, because there weren't any in our neighborhood. Today over a third of American children are born into single-parent homes. Is this all men's doing? #Quote by Timothy J. Russert
Parent quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#10. My feelings towards it can only be paralleled by that of a doting parent towards an idiot child. #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Parent quotes by Chris Hughes
#11. I was on significant financial aid, an only child, with parents who didn't have much living in North Carolina. #Quote by Chris Hughes
Parent quotes by Anne-Marie Duff

Parent quotes by Tinie Tempah
#13. I watched my parents go from having very basic jobs to educating themselves, to buying a house. They set a really good bar for what they wanted their kids to achieve. #Quote by Tinie Tempah
Parent quotes by Josh Earnest

Parent quotes by Kimberlee Roth
#15. your parent may actually have consciously or unconsciously reinforced you as the caretaker to meet his or her needs, to be the nurturer and provider of emotional support, #Quote by Kimberlee Roth
Parent quotes by John K. Brown
#16. I used to be terrified of death. My grandfather was terminal in the hospital across from my high school, yet I never visited him. That fact still haunts me to this day. Years later, my arms were around my grandmother as she struggled with her last breaths. I told her we were with her and everything was going to be okay. She died as I held her tightly and I felt her body lose life. It was the most peaceful moment I ever experienced, and I felt joy for her. It was an emotional, intellectual, and spiritual moment for me. I wasn't afraid anymore ... One day years later I received the phone call every parent dreads. My daughter was in a serious automobile accident. As I raced to her I prepared myself for the news she had died. Once again, I felt an unexpected and profound emotion. She lived, but in the face of that horrifying time there was a strange overall calm. I realized, no matter what, everything was going to be okay. I remembered I wasn't afraid anymore. #Quote by John K. Brown
Parent quotes by L.R. Knost
#17. When little people are overwhelmed by big emotions, it's our job to share our calm, not join their chaos. #Quote by L.R. Knost
Parent quotes by Andrew Dice Clay
#18. When you're at your own parents' funeral, when you're at somebody that you love's funeral, you realize how precious life is. And you say, "As long as I can walk and I'm healthy, there's always tomorrow." #Quote by Andrew Dice Clay
Parent quotes by Cory Monteith
#19. At some point, you realize your parents are human. They make the best decisions they can with the options available to them. #Quote by Cory Monteith
Parent quotes by Katharine Whitehorn
#20. One reason you are stricken when your parents die is that the audience you've been aiming at all your life - shocking it, pleasing it - has suddenly left the theater. #Quote by Katharine Whitehorn
Parent quotes by Jenny McCarthy
#21. Google is one of the most incredible breakthroughs that we have today. Yes, it can scare a lot of patients, thinking we're all dying because we look up something on Google. But there's also a lot of anecdotal information from parents, firsthand accounts of what they did for their own child. #Quote by Jenny McCarthy
Parent quotes by Michelle Obama
#22. As a mom, I know it is my responsibility, and no one else's, to raise my kids. But we have to ask ourselves, what does it mean when so many parents are finding their best efforts undermined by an avalanche of advertisements aimed at our kids. #Quote by Michelle Obama
Parent quotes by Erasmus Darwin
#23. Some philosophers have been of opinion that our immortal part acquires during this life certain habits of action or of sentiment, which become forever indissoluble, continuing after death in a future state of existence ... I would apply this ingenious idea to the generation, or production of the embryon, or new animal, which partakes so much of the form and propensities of the parent. #Quote by Erasmus Darwin
Parent quotes by Diana Trilling
#24. In the bad sixties, when drugs came into widespread use among adolescents and when Scarsdale mothers developed the habit of not asking about each others children for fear of what they'd hear, one knew that they were speaking-or not speaking, keeping their unhappy silence-on behalf of stricken motherhood everywhere in the country. #Quote by Diana Trilling
Parent quotes by Mikhail Bakunin
#25. Children do not constitute anyone's property:
they are neither the property of their parents nor even of society.
They belong only to their own future freedom. #Quote by Mikhail Bakunin
Parent quotes by Kathryn Hahn
#26. I got a liberal arts education just because I felt like I should to keep my parents happy, but it was for them. If it was up to me, I would've just moved to New York. #Quote by Kathryn Hahn
Parent quotes by Michael Hyatt
#27. When we are young, parents and teachers tell us we can do anything and become whatever we want. But as we grow older, these same people tell us we must be more realistic. #Quote by Michael Hyatt
Parent quotes by Alexandra Daddario
#28. I think my parents saw that acting ultimately made me happy, even though it was a rough ride for a little bit. There wasn't a ton of pushback about it. #Quote by Alexandra Daddario
Parent quotes by Diana Gabaldon
#29. Time does not really exist for mothers, with regard to their children. It does not matter greatly how old the child is-in the blink of an eye, a mother can see the child again as they were when they were born, when they learned how to walk, as they were at any age-at any time, even when the child is fully grown or a parent themselves. #Quote by Diana Gabaldon
Parent quotes by Georges St-Pierre
#30. One of the important lessons I learned from my parents is always to respect authority figures like teachers. #Quote by Georges St-Pierre
Parent quotes by David Frost
#31. Having one child makes you a parent; having two you are a referee #Quote by David Frost
Parent quotes by Vinnie Jones
#32. For some people, becoming a parent does change them, but it never changed me. #Quote by Vinnie Jones
Parent quotes by Rose Macaulay
#33. Parents are untamed, excessive, potentially troublesome creatures; charming to be with for a time, in the main they must lead their own lives, independent and self-employed, with companions of their own age and selection ... #Quote by Rose Macaulay
Parent quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero
#34. Patria est communis omnium parens.
Our country is the common parent of all. #Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero
Parent quotes by Donna Rice Hughes
#35. Parents are the weak link in the chain when it comes to protecting their children. #Quote by Donna Rice Hughes
Parent quotes by Josh Hutcherson
#36. I'm someone who can fall in love at the drop of the hat. My parents raised me to be very accepting of other people, so because of that, I feel like I might be overly accepting of girls. If a girl shows any interest, I'm like, 'Yes! I love you, you're amazing!' #Quote by Josh Hutcherson
Parent quotes by Jim Gaffigan
#37. There's something about being a parent that has, I think, made me a better comedian. #Quote by Jim Gaffigan
Parent quotes by Jen Hatmaker
#38. I don't want my kids safe and comfortable. I want them BRAVE ... I don't want to be the reason my kids choose safety over courage. I hope I never hear them say, 'Mom will freak out,' or 'My parents will never agree to this.' May my fear not bind their purpose here. Scared moms raise scared kids. Brave moms raise brave kids. Real disciples raise real disciples. #Quote by Jen Hatmaker
Parent quotes by Thomas Brooks
#39. Ambition is a gilded misery, a secret poison, a hidden plague, the engineer of deceit, the mother of hypocrisy, the parent of envy, the original of vices, the moth of holiness, the blinder of hearts, turning medicines into maladies, and remedies into diseases. #Quote by Thomas Brooks
Parent quotes by Havelock Ellis
#40. The mother is really a more immediate parent than the father because one is born from the mother, and the first experience of any infant is the mother. #Quote by Havelock Ellis
Parent quotes by Tina Yothers
#41. With a lot of kids in the business, the parents get as twisted as they do, and there's a lot of opportunities to go their own way, but anyone has that opportunity. #Quote by Tina Yothers
Parent quotes by Derek Jeter
#42. What kind of influence did my parents have on my life? Well, they had the most influence. These are the people who are closest to me. My parents are very positive people. They've been supportive. They're always there. #Quote by Derek Jeter
Parent quotes by Joseph Chilton Pearce
#43. The parent knows that the child cannot be artificially motivated to learn; they know that he is already motivated by the strongest driving force on earth: his inner intent. #Quote by Joseph Chilton Pearce
Parent quotes by Vaddey Ratner
#44. Perhaps it's natural for a father, for every parent, to see in his child all that's unspoiled and good. #Quote by Vaddey Ratner
Parent quotes by Trip Lee
#45. God opened my eyes to see Jesus for who He really was. After I trusted Christ, the Lord changed my entire perspective on everything. I started thinking about how I should relate to my parents and how I should approach school and even what it meant for the music I was writing. #Quote by Trip Lee
Parent quotes by Big L
#46. Im so ahead of my time my parents havent met yet #Quote by Big L
Parent quotes by Alexes Razevich
#47. This must happen to every child." I suddenly thought. "The moment when you realize your parent is a full person in their own right with their own life. Funny how we fight so hard to be seen as independent and capable ourselves but don't allot the same consideration to a parent. #Quote by Alexes Razevich
Parent quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#48. Don't feel guilty if you don't immediately love your stepchildren as you do your own, or as much as you think you should. Everyoneneeds time to adjust to the new family, adults included. There is no such thing as an "instant parent."
Actually, no concrete object lies outside of the poetic sphere as long as the poet knows how to use the object properly. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Parent quotes by Henry B. Eyring
#49. A mortal parent may appreciate, in some small way, the feelings of a loving Heavenly Father. When our children come to the age when they must leave our direct care, we feel anxiety for their safety and concern that those who are to help them will not fail them. #Quote by Henry B. Eyring
Parent quotes by Jonathan Franzen
#50. Parents are programmed to want the best for their kids, regardless of what they get in return. That's what love is supposed to be like, right? But in fact, if you think about it, that's kind of a strange belief. Given what we know about the way people really are. Selfish and shortsighted and egotistical and needy. Why should being a parent, in and of itself, somehow confer superior-personhood on everybody who tries it? Obviously it doesn't. #Quote by Jonathan Franzen
Parent quotes by Jerry Garcia
#51. And there's a lot of that stuff with people bringing their kids, kids bringing their parents, people bringing their grandparents - I mean, it's gotten to be really stretched out now. It was never my intention to say, this is the demographics of our audience. #Quote by Jerry Garcia
Parent quotes by Samuel L. Jackson
#52. My dad was an absentee dad, so it was always important to me that I was part of my daughter's life, and she deserved two parents, which is part of the rationale behind us staying married for 30 years. #Quote by Samuel L. Jackson
Parent quotes by Pattie Mallette
#53. I think it's hard for any parent to see anything negative said or done against your child and, when you can't directly do something about it, it's hard. #Quote by Pattie Mallette
Parent quotes by April Daniels
#54. Maybe it's because your mother is always Mom to you, or maybe it's because I was in denial, but finally it hits me: Mom is just as much his captive as I am. She's not just the quieter parent, the more reasonable one. She's the trustee trapped between the warden and the other prisoner.

Immediately upon the heels of this understanding is another: I must not say this out loud. To say it out loud is to name it, and to name it is to give it irresistible power. That power will mean it can no longer be ignored. The polite fictions and convenient blind spots won't work anymore. Something will have to change.

And I know, with a certainty that fills me with dread, this is something she will not do. If I say the name of this thing he's done to her, she will fight me. She will join him, because she'll have to. Because she'll have to destroy me or else admit I was right. #Quote by April Daniels
Parent quotes by Christian Boltanski
#55. When I was four or five years old, I heard a lot of stories about the Holocaust because both my parents were survivors. I'm sure that was very important in my life. My father snuck out from under the floorboards to make love to my mother. I can't imagine why they kept me. #Quote by Christian Boltanski
Parent quotes by Leon Askin
#56. 1988 I also received from the city of Vienna the cross of honour for art and science. These titles and the various honors mean a great deal to me, most of all for the reason that they would mean a great deal to my parents too. #Quote by Leon Askin
Parent quotes by Renee Carlino
#57. I'm not sure why I had to weather the stages of grief after hearing the news that night. Maybe it was the death of my singledom or the death of my own childhood that scared me. For some reason, when you're faced with the realization that you're going to become a parent, it immediately changes how you view yourself. You no longer think of yourself as someone else's child because you can't be a parent and a child. It's an official good-bye, and good-byes always scared the hell out of me. #Quote by Renee Carlino
Parent quotes by Lionel Shriver
#58. We have explicit expectations of ourselves in specific situations–beyond expectations; they are requirements. Some of these are small: If we are given a surprise party, we will be delighted. Others are sizable: if a parent dies, we will be grief-stricken. But perhaps in tandem with these expectations is the private fear that we will fail convention in the crunch. That we will receive the fateful phone call and our mother is dead and we feel nothing. I wonder if this quiet, unutterable little fear is even keener than the fear of the bad news itself: that we will discover ourselves to be monstrous. #Quote by Lionel Shriver
Parent quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#59. The scholars who research happiness suggest that more money stops making people happier at a family income of around seventy-five thousand dollars a year. After that, what economists call "diminishing marginal returns" sets in. If your family makes seventy-five thousand and your neighbor makes a hundred thousand, that extra twenty-five thousand a year means that your neighbor can drive a nicer car and go out to eat slightly more often. But it doesn't make your neighbor happier than you, or better equipped to do the thousands of small and large things that make for being a good parent. #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Parent quotes by Jim Berg
#60. It is impossible to effectively parent from the driver's seat of a minivan. #Quote by Jim Berg
Parent quotes by Kathleen Silber
#61. The adoptee benefits because his collective parents are permitted to grow secure in their particular roles in his life. His adoptive parents are not unwittingly encouraged to compete to possess him. Nor are his birth parents punished and banished from a place in his life. #Quote by Kathleen Silber
Parent quotes by Kobe Bryant
#62. My parents are my backbone. Still are. They're the only group that will support you if you score zero or you score 40. #Quote by Kobe Bryant
Parent quotes by Arnold Schwarzenegger
#63. In this country, it doesn't make any difference where you were born. It doesn't make any difference who your parents were. It doesn't make any difference if, like me, you couldn't even speak English until you were in your twenties. #Quote by Arnold Schwarzenegger
Parent quotes by Tahar Ben Jelloun
#64. I belong to a specific category of writers, those who speak and write in a language different from that of their parents. #Quote by Tahar Ben Jelloun
Parent quotes by Hugh Grant
#65. If you have a smothering parent, the effect it can apparently have on a child is to give them, in equal doses, a sense of too much self-esteem, because they are mummy's little princess or prince, and low self-esteem. It affects future relationships. #Quote by Hugh Grant
Parent quotes by Michael Gove
#66. The first four months of my life were spent in care, before I was adopted by my wonderful parents - my mum and dad - Ernie and Christine. They went on to adopt my sister, who is profoundly deaf, and invested both of us with a love and support that informs everything I do today. #Quote by Michael Gove
Parent quotes by John Grisham
#67. With murder, the victim is gone, and not forced to deal with what happened to her. The family must deal with it, but not the victim. But rape is much worse. The victim has a lifetime of coping, trying to understand, of asking questions, and the worst part, of knowing the rapist is still alive and may someday escape or be released. Every hour of every day, the victim thinks of the rape and asks herself a thousand questions. She relives it, step by step, minute by minute, and it hurts just as bad.
Perhaps the most horrible crime of all is the violent rape of a child. A woman who is raped has a pretty good idea why it happened. Some animal was filled with hatred, anger and violence. But a child? A ten-year-old child? Suppose you're a parent. Imagine yourself trying to explain to your child why she was raped. Imagine yourself trying to explain why she cannot bear children. #Quote by John Grisham
Parent quotes by Natsume Sōseki
#68. I realized that it was not Ko-san, now safely ditched for ever, but Ko-san's mother who stood in need of pity and consideration. She must still live on in this hard unpitying world, but he, once he had jumped [in battle], had jumped beyond such things. The case could well have been different, had he never jumped; but he did jump; and that, as they say, is that. Whether this world's weather turns out fine or cloudy no more worries him; but it matters to his mother. It rains, so she sits alone indoors thinking about Ko-san. And now it's fine, so she potters out and meets a friend of Ko-san's. She hangs out the national flag to welcome the returned soliders, but her joy is made querulous with wishing that Ko-san were alive. At the public bath-house, some young girl of marriageable age helps her to carry a bucket of hot water: but her pleasure from that kindness is soured as she thinks if only I had a daughter-in-law like this girl. To live under such conditions is to live in agonies. Had she lost one out of many children, there would be consolation and comfort in the mere fact of the survivors. But when loss halves a family of just one parent and one child, the damage is as irreparable as when a gourd is broken clean across its middle. There's nothing left to hang on to. Like the sergeant's mother, she too had waited for her son's return, counting on shriveled fingers the passing of the days and nights before that special day when she would be able once more to hang on him. But #Quote by Natsume Sōseki
Parent quotes by Lyn Nofziger
#69. One other thing I think a conservative believes is that the parents, not government, are and should be responsible for the upbringing and behavior of their children. #Quote by Lyn Nofziger
Parent quotes by Kelly Ripa
#70. There's no real manual on being a parent. There's no real manual on being a wife. I keep reminding myself, My mother did all this, only she never got to leave the house. OK, I can do this. We're all learning on our own learning curve. #Quote by Kelly Ripa
Parent quotes by Linda Sunshine
#71. Almost everything can be construed as sexual harassment depending upon the way it is said. One general rule of thumb is to think of your female co-workers as you would your sister. Yes, she is a woman. No, she is not a sexual object. Yes, your parents probably like her more than they like you. #Quote by Linda Sunshine
Parent quotes by Brian Aldiss
#72. When you are young, you enjoy a sustained illusion that sooner or later something marvelous is going to happen, that you are going to transcend your parents' limitations. #Quote by Brian Aldiss
Parent quotes by Gabe Polsky
#73. My parents are from the former Soviet Union, from Ukraine, and I grew up wanting to be a professional hockey player. #Quote by Gabe Polsky
Parent quotes by Bernie Siegel
#74. It can be tempting to blame others for our loss of direction. We get lots of information about life but little education in life from parents, teachers, and other authority figures who should know better from their experience. Information is about facts. Education is about wisdom and the knowledge of how to love and survive. #Quote by Bernie Siegel
Parent quotes by Steven Galloway
#75. Being a parent is a monumental thing. You shape reality for another person. You cannot be an illusion. You cannot be paralyzed by the fear that you are an illusion. If you have done a bad job, or no job at all, what remains of you is proof that the world is an unfeeling place. If you have done a good job, what remains is the part of you that was magical. #Quote by Steven Galloway
Parent quotes by Kevin Hart - I Can't Make This Up
#76. I chose not to lose my mom, and instead to gain an angel. In my mind, my heart, and my life, she is still completely present to this day -- and as wise, compassionate and stubborn as ever #Quote by Kevin Hart - I Can't Make This Up
Parent quotes by Carl Rogers
#77. An empathic way of being can be learned from empathic persons. Perhaps the most important statement of all is that the ability to be accurately empathic is something which can be developed by training. Therapists, parents and teachers can be helped to become empathic. This is especially likely to occur if their teachers and supervisors are themselves individuals of sensitive understanding. It is most encouraging to know that this subtle, elusive quality, of utmost importance in therapy, is not something one is "born with", but can be learned, and learned most rapidly in an empathic climate. #Quote by Carl Rogers
Parent quotes by Venus Williams
#78. You learn so much from your parents. We grew up in a home where we were definitely taught to be confident. I definitely give me parents a lot of credit. #Quote by Venus Williams
Parent quotes by Charlotte Mason
#79. Let the parent ask "Why?" and the child produce the answer, if he can. After he has turned the matter over in his mind, there is no harm in telling him - and he will remember it - the reason why. #Quote by Charlotte Mason
Parent quotes by Graham Greene
#80. Time has its revenges, but revenge seems so often sour. Wouldn't we all do better not trying to understand, accepting the fact that no human being will ever understand another, not a wife with a husband, nor a parent a child? Perhaps that's why men have invented God – a being capable of understanding. #Quote by Graham Greene
Parent quotes by Hugh Hefner
#81. Follow your own particular dreams. We are handed a life by peers, parents and society, you can do that or follow your own dreams. Life is short, be a dreamer but be a practical person. #Quote by Hugh Hefner
Parent quotes by Linda Tirado
#82. So let's stop saying that poor people are irresponsible parents and start admitting that society doesn't seem to believe that if you are poor you are entitled to be a parent at all. Given #Quote by Linda Tirado
Parent quotes by Masaru Emoto
#83. Life is love, a gift from god and parent, death is gratitude for a new dimension #Quote by Masaru Emoto
Parent quotes by Marco Rubio
#84. My parents were workers. #Quote by Marco Rubio
Parent quotes by Marlee Matlin
#85. I did three DVD's for 'Baby Einstein,' teaching babies how to sign. It really helps a parent communicate because babies can't talk. But it has been proven that they can communicate using their hands to communicate. So sign language is a great tool in that way. #Quote by Marlee Matlin
Parent quotes by Bernie Parent
#86. Every time a puck gets past me and I look back into the net, I say, 'uh-oh.' #Quote by Bernie Parent
Parent quotes by Emily Mortimer
#87. I'm still shy - I'm no good at my children's parent-teacher conferences, and I'm slowly learning how to ask for what I want. But I now know that I have a reserve of courage to draw upon when I really need it. There's nothing that I'm too scared to have a go at. #Quote by Emily Mortimer
Parent quotes by Thomas Ligotti
#88. Trying for this understanding is the most trying thing of all. Yet trying not to try for it is just as trying. There is nothing more futile than to consciously look for something to save you. But consciousness makes this fact seem otherwise. Consciousness makes it seem as if (1) there is something to do; (2) there is somewhere to go; (3) there is something to be; (4) there is someone to know. This is what makes consciousness the parent of all horrors, the thing that makes us try to do something, go somewhere, be something, and know someone, such as ourselves, so that we can escape our MALIGNANTLY USELESS being and think that being alive is all right rather than that which should not be. #Quote by Thomas Ligotti
Parent quotes by Matthew D. Lieberman
#89. If a stranger saying we are "dependable" activates the reward system, imagine what praise from a boss, a parent, or even an unaccomplished slightly older graduate student will do. Of course, we all know that praise is a good thing, as long as it isn't too unconditional, but until very recently, we had no idea that praise taps into the same reinforcement system in the brain that enables cheese to help rats learn to solve mazes. And positive social regard is a renewable resource. Rather than having less of something after using it, when we let others know we value them, both parties have more. #Quote by Matthew D. Lieberman
Parent quotes by Amy Carmichael
#90. If our children were to grow up truthful they much be taught by those who had a regard for truth; and not just a casual regard, a delicate regard. On this point we were adamant. #Quote by Amy Carmichael
Parent quotes by Kristin Hannah
#91. Like all motherless girls, Leni would become an emotional explorer, trying to uncover the lost part of her, the mother who carried and nurtured and loved her. Leni would become both mother and child; to her, mama would still grow and age. She would never be gone, not as long as Leni remembered her. #Quote by Kristin Hannah
Parent quotes by Tedd Tripp
#92. A parent who is respectful to his children and teaches them with dignity and respect will be respected by his children. #Quote by Tedd Tripp
Parent quotes by Desmond Tutu
#93. If you are able to talk about your life and the joys and sorrows you have experienced, if you know your story, you are much more likely to be a skillful parent. #Quote by Desmond Tutu
Parent quotes by Naveen Andrews
#94. I was always in trouble from an early age. I had a fraught relationship with my parents, who were very traditional. Doing plays at school was a joyous release. #Quote by Naveen Andrews
Parent quotes by Vinnie Jones
#95. My parents split when I was 13. For a youngster, it's quite devastating. One minute you're all happy families, then everything changes. #Quote by Vinnie Jones
Parent quotes by Tracy Malone
#96. Understand the narcissist will be a worse parent when they are out of the fake family game. On the surface everyone will hear what a good parent they are. Your kids will be devalued and possibly be discarded. Be the balanced grounded loving person you were before the narcissist and your children have a chance. #Quote by Tracy Malone
Parent quotes by Jed Diamond
#97. Parents and therapists offer unconditional love without needing it to be returned, yet both sides grow in love, understanding, and acceptance. #Quote by Jed Diamond
Parent quotes by Chance The Rapper
#98. Both of my parents graduated from high school, both attended college, both have government jobs now. They've always been very adamant about me finishing high school and finishing college. #Quote by Chance The Rapper
Parent quotes by Byron Katie
#99. Our parents, our children, our spouses, and our friends will continue to press every button we have, until we realize what it is that we don't want to know about ourselves, yet. They will point us to our freedom every time. #Quote by Byron Katie
Parent quotes by Jennifer Garner
#100. My parents came from a poor background and worked their way up because of education. They saw it as a way to succeed. So they cared about me getting straight A grades when I was growing up. #Quote by Jennifer Garner
Parent quotes by Michael Sandel
#101. One of the ways in which parenting is a learning experience and an opportunity for moral growth is that we learn as parents that we don't choose the kind of child that we have. #Quote by Michael Sandel
Parent quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#102. To lead solely on the behalf of those being led is the utter pinnacle of fatherhood, and it is sad that so few ever stand on the summit. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Parent quotes by Mila Kunis
#103. My mom and my dad wanted my brother and I to have a better life, you know, better education, better jobs. It was probably harder, much, much harder, for my parents. When you're a kid, you can learn a language much more easily; I learned English in less than a year. #Quote by Mila Kunis
Parent quotes by Marvin J. Ashton
#104. Often parents communicate most effectively with their children by the way they listen to and address each other. Their conversations showing gentleness and love are heard by our ever-alert, impressionable children. #Quote by Marvin J. Ashton
Parent quotes by Anuradha Bhattacharyya
#105. He was sulking. It was natural. If it had been a daughter or son, the parent would have rushed to find out why she or he did not turn up. The parent would have imagined all sorts of harm that might have happened to the beloved child. But a lover always sulks. A lover feels betrayed. A lover feels as if the beloved has deliberately jilted him. #Quote by Anuradha Bhattacharyya
Parent quotes by Terry Crews
#106. As a parent you walk around trying to be perfect, but you don't have to be perfect. That's the key. You just have to be faithful, and when I say faithful I mean you have to give your all. #Quote by Terry Crews
Parent quotes by Joyce Maynard
#107. One of the sad realities of being a parent is that the same stuff you know is exciting, educational, and enriching in your child'slife is often messy, smelly and exhausting to deal with. #Quote by Joyce Maynard
Parent quotes by Lisa Rogers
#108. A man's worth is measured by how he parents his children. What he gives them, what he keeps away from them, the lessons he teaches and the lessons he allows them to learn on their own. #Quote by Lisa Rogers
Parent quotes by David Shuster
#109. I think that every day is a learning experience. I mean, every time I go to a school I learn something else from a teacher or learn something else from a student, I learn something else from a parent. There's so much to know when you talk about education. #Quote by David Shuster
Parent quotes by Tori Kelly
#110. My parents say that I was singing before I could talk. I personally remember specific moments at three or four when music was playing literally all over the house. #Quote by Tori Kelly
Parent quotes by Meg Cabot
#111. Sometimes I just want to write a really intense love scene. But I can't do that in my books for teens, or parents will complain - believe me, I've tried. #Quote by Meg Cabot
Parent quotes by Dominique Moceanu
#112. My parents enrolled me in a gymnastics class when I was three years old, and I just was drawn to gymnastics. I loved it. It was my playground, and I could run around and be free there. #Quote by Dominique Moceanu
Parent quotes by Salman Rushdie
#113. If my child had prejudice in his head, I'd be ashamed. I would see it as my failure as a parent. #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Parent quotes by Vince Passaro
#114. I was taken up by books, as if by the strong arms of a parent I'd never known and had been badly missing. #Quote by Vince Passaro
Parent quotes by Albert Belle
#115. There were a lot of times in the Cleveland and Chicago organizations when I did something, they wanted to make sure the camera was there. I really didn't want that. This isn't something my parents told me to do. Or something my family told me to do. Or do things for publicity. I do this on my own. I do this from my heart. #Quote by Albert Belle
Parent quotes by Jenny Mollen
#116. My parents ... are more like cats. They accidentally had a litter of kittens, and then emotionally moved on to whatever ball of yarn rolled past their line of sight. #Quote by Jenny Mollen
Parent quotes by Honore De Balzac
#117. Parent may hinder their children's marriage; but children cannot interfere with the insane acts of their parents in their second childhood. #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Parent quotes by Rosemary Wells
#118. The characters in a children's book must reach into the heart of the reader on page one. Emotional content is the main reason a child and a parent will go back to a book again and again. #Quote by Rosemary Wells
Parent quotes by E. M. Forster
#119. For a wonderful physical tie binds the parents to the children; and - by some sad, strange irony - it does not bind us children to our parents. For if it did, if we could answer their love not with gratitude but with equal love, life would lose much of its pathos and much of its squalor, and we might be wonderfully happy. #Quote by E. M. Forster
Parent quotes by Ogden Nash
#120. Life has a tendency to obfuscate and bewilder, Such as fating us to spend the first part of our lives being embarrassed by our parents and the last part being embarrassed by our children. #Quote by Ogden Nash
Parent quotes by Steve Klabnik
#121. Inheritance has recently fallen out of favor as a programming design solution in many programming languages because it's often at risk of sharing more code than necessary. Subclasses shouldn't always share all characteristics of their parent class but will do so with inheritance. This can make a program's design less flexible. It also introduces the possibility of calling methods on subclasses that don't make sense or that cause errors because the methods don't apply to the subclass. In addition, some languages will only allow a subclass to inherit from one class, further restricting the flexibility of a program's design.

For these reasons, Rust takes a different approach, using trait objects instead of inheritance. #Quote by Steve Klabnik
Parent quotes by Pete Wentz
#122. I'm in the process of convincing my parents to sell me their house so I can just live in my childhood bedroom forever. I figure it might make me age slower. #Quote by Pete Wentz
Parent quotes by Ellen DeGeneres
#123. Find out who you are and figure out what you believe in. Even if it's different from what your neighbors believe in and different from what your parents believe in. Stay true to yourself. Have your own opinion. Don't worry about what people say about you or think about you. Let the naysayers nay. They will eventually grow tired of naying. #Quote by Ellen DeGeneres
Parent quotes by Michael Spence
#124. My father once said about being a parent that it is the only thing you do that requires a very long period of learning, and at about the time that you are becoming competent, you don't need the skills anymore. Notwithstanding this modest assessment of their parenting skills, they were wonderful parents. #Quote by Michael Spence
Parent quotes by Dree Hemingway
#125. My whole thing was, as much as I was inspired by what my parents do, and growing up on film sets, watching that made me really want to do that. I am my own person, and I think that the only thing with the Hemingway name is that it has gotten me in the door. #Quote by Dree Hemingway
Parent quotes by Michael Josephson
#126. Creating a child takes no love or skill; being a parent requires lots of both. #Quote by Michael Josephson
Parent quotes by Daniel Radcliffe
#127. Both of my parents have been actors; there were a lot of show tunes on in the car all of the time. I grew up with that. #Quote by Daniel Radcliffe
Parent quotes by Danielle Steel
#128. All you know is your parents telling you that you're not deserving, you're not worthy, and no one will ever want you. Believe me, tapes like that play so loud, you can't hear anything else. Even when it's clear otherwise. #Quote by Danielle Steel
Parent quotes by Robin Norwood
#129. Taking responsibility for yourself and your happiness gives a great freedom to children who have felt guilty and responsible for your unhappiness (which they always do). A child can never hope to balance the scales or repay the debt when a parent has sacrificed her life, her happiness, her fulfilment for the child or the family. Seeing a parent fully embrace life gives a child the permission to do the same, just as seeing a parent suffer indicates to the child that suffering is what life is all about. #Quote by Robin Norwood
Parent quotes by Steve Gaynor
#130. When you're working on a game that has a budget of tens of millions of dollars and you have to sell millions and millions and millions of copies to break even, you have a lot more layers between you and the audience. You have a marketing department, and there's a different marketing department for every continent, and the parent company has stockholders, and all that kind of stuff. #Quote by Steve Gaynor
Parent quotes by Werner Erhard
#131. Maturity is doing whatever you want, even if your parents want the same thing. #Quote by Werner Erhard
Parent quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#132. If you really want to hurt your parents and you don't have nerve enough to be homosexual, the least you can do is go into the arts. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Parent quotes by Jaime Escalante
#133. If we expect kids to be losers they will be losers; if we expect them to be winners they will be winners. They rise, or fall, to the level of the expectations of those around them, especially their parents and their teachers. #Quote by Jaime Escalante
Parent quotes by Jennifer Lawrence
#134. When you don't have anybody to take care of you, then you could go both ways: You could do whatever you want, or you could take charge and be your own parent. #Quote by Jennifer Lawrence
Parent quotes by Aristotle.
#135. Teachers, who educate children, deserve more honour than parents, who merely gave them birth; for the latter provided mere life, while the former ensure a good life. #Quote by Aristotle.
Parent quotes by Anne-Marie Duff
#136. Healthy love, I always think, is ... wanting the person you love to be more of themselves. And I think for a parent that's a challenge, because you have to let a baby spread its wings. #Quote by Anne-Marie Duff
Parent quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#137. Parenthood is the opiate of the masses. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Parent quotes by Brian Kiley
#138. In high school, my sister went out with the captain of the chess team. My parents loved him ... They figured that any guy that took hours to make a move was okay with them. #Quote by Brian Kiley
Parent quotes by Sue Klebold
#139. There is perhaps no harder truth for a parent to bear, but it is one that no parent on earth knows better than I do, and it is this: love is not enough. My love for Dylan, though infinite, did not keep Dylan safe, nor did it save the 13 people killed at Columbine High School, or the many others injured and traumatized. I missed the subtle signs of psychological deterioration that, had I noticed, might have made a difference for Dylan and his victims - all the difference in the world. #Quote by Sue Klebold
Parent quotes by Kate Fleetwood
#140. My parents are not theatrical people, but my dad took me to the theater. #Quote by Kate Fleetwood
Parent quotes by John Green
#141. Let me be frank with you, kid. Those people know how to parent like I know how to diet. I've worked with them before, and I don't like them. #Quote by John Green
Parent quotes by Kamla Persad-Bissessar
#142. Men don't want to be confused by the facts when their minds are already made up. Women know the art of negotiation - just ask the mother of a four-year-old who refuses to eat his veggies or the parent of a teenager. #Quote by Kamla Persad-Bissessar
Parent quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#143. Humans are the only animals that have children on purpose with the exception of guppies, who like to eat theirs. #Quote by P. J. O'Rourke
Parent quotes by Paul Johnson
#144. The most socially subversive institution of our time is the one-parent family. #Quote by Paul Johnson
Parent quotes by Siri Hustvedt
#145. Bedtime rituals for children ease the way to the elsewhere of slumber - teeth brushing and pajamas, the voice of a parent reading, the feel and smell of the old blanket or toy, the nightlight glowing in a corner. #Quote by Siri Hustvedt
Parent quotes by Brie Larson
#146. I'm sure that there's frustration that comes with wanting to just have a normal mom. But, I don't really know if they see it as any different than any other problem you might have with a parent. I think everybody can think about one thing that their parents used to do, all the time, that would embarrass you. #Quote by Brie Larson
Parent quotes by Yoko Ogawa
#147. Someone once wrote that worrying is the hardest thing about being a parent. #Quote by Yoko Ogawa
Parent quotes by Jason Mraz
#148. My parents were always very supportive and accepting. They even shared my curiosity for life, or perhaps I theirs. #Quote by Jason Mraz
Parent quotes by Luis Fortuno
#149. Over 90 percent of parents in Puerto Rico want their children to be totally fluent in English. #Quote by Luis Fortuno
Parent quotes by Christine Kenneally
#150. Language and material culture have greatly increased the mobility of the world's population, and some researchers believe that this will lead to an unhealthy and irreversible diminishing of variation in our genome. As more and more humans breed across the boundaries of genetic variation, we become a blander, more homogenous bunch than our diverse parent groups. This could be a problem because variation is important to the evolutionary health of a species, for the more we are the same, the easier it is for one single thing to make us extinct. Indeed, some genetic variants of the human species are disappearing altogether as small indigenous groups die out. #Quote by Christine Kenneally
Parent quotes by Brie Larson
#151. Sometimes I laugh with my parents, and sometimes I yell at them, and both are therapeutic. #Quote by Brie Larson
Parent quotes by Amber Valletta
#152. In order for me to parent well I have to empathize and stay open with my son. #Quote by Amber Valletta
Parent quotes by John Grogan
#153. A dog is the greatest gift a parent can give a child. OK, a good education, then a dog. #Quote by John Grogan
Parent quotes by Alix Kates Shulman
#154. For many decades my relations with my parents constituted unfinished business. I had dealt with them through sheer avoidance and guilt. #Quote by Alix Kates Shulman
Parent quotes by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
#155. Trauma happens to us, our friends, our families, and our neighbors. Research by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has shown that one in five Americans was sexually molested as a child; one in four was beaten by a parent to the point of a mark being left on their body; and one in three couples engages in physical violence. A quarter of us grew up with alcoholic relatives, and one out of eight witnessed their mother being beaten or hit.1 #Quote by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
Parent quotes by Ronald Reagan
#156. Generations hence, parents will take their children to these woods to show them how the land must have looked to the first Pilgrims and pioneers. And as Americans wander through these forests, climb these mountains, they will sense the love and majesty of the Creator of all of that. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Parent quotes by Nasim Pedrad
#157. I knew at a young age that I wanted to do comedy, and maybe part of that was trying to fit in at school because I had a weird name, and my parents had these accents, and I was definitely a late bloomer. #Quote by Nasim Pedrad
Parent quotes by Muhtar Kent
#158. I love Southeast Asia. As a child, I lived in that part of the world. My first time in Burma was in 1958 with my parents. #Quote by Muhtar Kent
Parent quotes by Ross Perot
#159. I was born rich. Not in tangible things ... but rich in the parents I had. #Quote by Ross Perot
Parent quotes by Rob Reiner
#160. I know how sobering and exhausting parenthood is. But the reality is that our children's future depends on us as parents. Because we know that the first years truly last forever. #Quote by Rob Reiner
Parent quotes by Karisma Kapoor
#161. I have learned so many things from my mother about the right upbringing, the right values, value for money, value for elders, for family members. I think these things only a parent can teach you. #Quote by Karisma Kapoor
Parent quotes by Jim George
#162. There is no substitute for your impassioned prayers on behalf of your children #Quote by Jim George
Parent quotes by Joe Navarro
#163. If you are a parent, teacher, camp counselor, or school resource officer and you see children severely change or restrain their arm behavior around their parents or other adults, at a minimum it should arouse your interest and promote further observation. Cessation of arm movement is part of the limbic system's freeze response. To the abused child, this adaptive behavior can mean survival. #Quote by Joe Navarro
Parent quotes by John O'Donohue
#164. If you try to avoid or remove the awkward quality, it will pursue you. The only effective way to still its unease is to transfigure it, to let it become something creative and positive that contributes to who you are. Nietzche said that one of the best days in his life was the day when he rebaptized all his negative qualities as his best qualities. Rather than banishing what is at first glimpse unwelcome, you bring it home to unity with your life ... ..One of your sacred duties is to exercise kindness towrd them. In a sense, you are called to be a loving parent to your delinquent qualiites #Quote by John O'Donohue
Parent quotes by Shirley Manson
#165. A lot of my friends are artists or musicians or single parent families and I'm totally aware of how difficult it is for them to make ends meet. #Quote by Shirley Manson
Parent quotes by George R R Martin
#166. No sooner had the Flowering taken root, so to speak, than your people rushed back to their private chambers, unleashed their carnal lusts and parental urges, and began reproducing faster than ever. Mean family size is greater now than five years ago, by .0072 persons, and your average citizen becomes a parent sooner by .0102 years. #Quote by George R R Martin
Parent quotes by Donna Tartt
#167. I did not think I could stand a Christmas at my parents' house, with a plastic tree and no snow and the TV going constantly. It was not as if my parent were so anxious to have me, either. In recent years they had fallen in with a gabby, childless couple, older than they were, called the MacNatts. Mr MacNatt was an auto-parts salesman; Mrs MacNat was shaped like a pigeon and sold Avon. #Quote by Donna Tartt
Parent quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#168. Thank you," Emerson said, bowing his head and accepting the box with the tender hands of a parent holding a child. "I am indebted-"
"Don't be.This doesn't mean I like you or your politics any better," Heath said gruffly. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Parent quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#169. The girls gave their hearts into their mother's keeping - their souls into their father's; and to both parents, who lived and labored so faithfully for them, they gave a love that grew with their growth, and bound them tenderly together by the sweetest tie which blesses life and outlives death. #Quote by Louisa May Alcott
Parent quotes by Irvin D. Yalom
#170. My task as a therapist (not unlike that of a parent) is to make myself obsolete - to help a patient become his or her own mother and father #Quote by Irvin D. Yalom
Parent quotes by Martha Williamson
#171. As a parent, the goal is not to get to the other end. It's just simply to protect the children that you're responsible for - and protect their hearts - and, wherever they're headed, to get (them) there safely. That involves patience, time and willingness to listen. #Quote by Martha Williamson
Parent quotes by Lynn Messina
#172. Dead parents are gruesome, yes, but anyone who's anyone in children's literature has either been orphaned or abandoned; well-adjusted kids from stable two-parent homes don't go on hero quests. #Quote by Lynn Messina
Parent quotes by Alice Miller
#173. Parents are indeed capable of routinely torturing their children without anyone interceding. #Quote by Alice Miller
Parent quotes by Abby Sunderland
#174. I was so thankful that my parents trusted me enough and had enough faith in my abilities to let me follow my passion and try to do something great, even if I might fail. #Quote by Abby Sunderland
Parent quotes by Diana Ross
#175. I'm a parent, and I try to take care of my health and keep my life in order. In the last few years I've really had to decide what's important to me, and it seems to me that my family and my health are top on the list. And those have nothing to do with show business. #Quote by Diana Ross
Parent quotes by Fiona Apple
#176. I have a very steadfast tendency to parent myself, to monitor my development into the person I want to be. I try to keep the corruption minimal. And though I advocate learning from my mistakes as much as making mistakes, I also try and make sure my mistakes do not cost other people. #Quote by Fiona Apple
Parent quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#177. Call me Jonah. My parents did, or nearly did. They called me John. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Parent quotes by Henry Ward Beecher
#178. All things in the natural world symboliZe God, yet none of them speak of him but in broken and imperfect words. High above all he sits, sublimer than mountains, grander than storms, sweeter than blossoms and tender fruits, nobler than lords, truer than parents, more loving than lovers. His feet tread the lowest places of the earth; but his head is above all glory, and everywhere he is supreme. #Quote by Henry Ward Beecher
Parent quotes by Casey Barnes
#179. The player had almost as much fun as the parent and coaches. This league is well worth the time the professionals put into it. I would encourage any professional to host a team. #Quote by Casey Barnes
Parent quotes by Jacob Braude
#180. Junior was being chided for his low grades. Little Robert, who lived a few doors away, was held up as an example. "Robert doesn't get C's and D's does he?" asked his father. "No," Junior admitted, "but he's different. He has very bright parents". #Quote by Jacob Braude
Parent quotes by Nicholas Day
#181. Over and over again, cross-cultural research on infancy teaches the exact same lesson: infants can tolerate - and thrive under - care that most any Western parent would assume would end very badly. #Quote by Nicholas Day
Parent quotes by Melissa Febos
#182. I think the addiction stuff, because I was already sort of outed in my family as a sexual person: as a sexually-adventurous and sexually-conflicted person and sexually-driven person. They already knew that about me. They knew that about me when I was eleven. My parents very consciously tried to provide an environment that would protect me from becoming a drug addict. #Quote by Melissa Febos
Parent quotes by Charles Darwin
#183. When we compare the individuals of the same variety or sub-variety of our older cultivated plants and animals, one of the first points which strikes us is, that they generally differ more from each other than do the individuals of any one species or variety in a state of nature. And if we reflect on the vast diversity of the plants and animals which have been cultivated, and which have varied during all ages under the most different climates and treatment, we are driven to conclude that this great variability is due to our domestic productions having been raised under conditions of life not so uniform as, and somewhat different from, those to which the parent species had been exposed under nature. There is, also, some probability in the view propounded by Andrew Knight, that this variability may be partly connected with excess of food. It seems clear that organic beings must be exposed during several generations to new conditions to cause any great amount of variation; and that, when the organisation has once begun to vary, it generally continues varying for many generations. No case is on record of a variable organism ceasing to vary under cultivation. Our oldest cultivated plants, such as wheat, still yield new varieties: our oldest domesticated animals are still capable of rapid improvement or modification. #Quote by Charles Darwin
Parent quotes by Chad Kroeger
#184. You never know what your parents are going to say when you tell them you're getting married - especially when it's with someone they haven't met yet. #Quote by Chad Kroeger
Parent quotes by Herman Melville
#185. Ignorance is the parent of fear. #Quote by Herman Melville
Parent quotes by P.C. Cast
#186. At the last parent visitation night I'd sorta accidentally watched a majorly nightmarish scene between Aphrodite and her parents. Her dad's the mayor of Tulsa. Her mom might be Satan. #Quote by P.C. Cast
Parent quotes by Jean Guitton
#187. When I read the documents relative to the Modernism, as it was defined by Saint Pius X, and when I compare them to the documents of the II Vatican Council, I cannot help being bewildered. For what was condemned as heresy in 1906 was proclaimed as what is and should be from now on the doctrine and method of the Church. In other words, the modernists of 1906 were, somewhat, precursors to me. My masters were part of them. My parents taught me Modernism. How could Saint Pius X reject those that now seem to be my precursors? #Quote by Jean Guitton
Parent quotes by Matt Haig
#188. Being a parent is standing on a shore and watching her child in a vulnerable craft, heading out over deeper and deeper water, hoping but not knowing there will be land somewhere ahead. #Quote by Matt Haig
Parent quotes by Ellie Goulding
#189. The only day I remember of my parents' marriage was the day my dad walked out. As I stood there at five years old, with my older sister and younger brother, I knew that he was gone. #Quote by Ellie Goulding
Parent quotes by Jennifer Aniston
#190. When your parents split up, it's impossible to delude yourself about fairytale romance and happy endings. #Quote by Jennifer Aniston
Parent quotes by Scott Simon
#191. It's not the cost (although that pinches), or the time (though that grinds). After a while, it's the sheer galling indignity of being asked to prove, pay, and prove all over again that you're a worthy parent. Any true parent will tell you that that is impossible to prove in advance. #Quote by Scott Simon
Parent quotes by Kate Bosworth
#192. That's the funniest thing about portraying certain things on screen, sitting next to your parents and they get to see this glimpse of me kissing another guy. #Quote by Kate Bosworth
Parent quotes by Chris Heimerdinger
#193. ...Teachings are given to different men under different circumstances and in different times... [but] ...the Lord is the same yesterday, today and forever. If a parent commands a little child not to play with matches, and then commands a teenager to light the campfire, is this a contradiction? It's only a question of preparedness - one is ready and one is not. #Quote by Chris Heimerdinger
Parent quotes by Robin Hayes
#194. Our law enforcement must be given every tool available to protect children from predators and parents need to know who is living in their community. #Quote by Robin Hayes
Parent quotes by Sandra Oh
#195. In many Asian households, to not go on to higher education, that's like a big no-no. I know my parents' discouragement was for my own protection, and I'm really close to them now, but they didn't understand that there is value in this. That's because they didn't know. #Quote by Sandra Oh
Parent quotes by Philippa Perry
#196. It seems whether we have a tendency towards being flexible or structured affects how we create, how we parent, how we work. #Quote by Philippa Perry
Parent quotes by Rodney Dangerfield
#197. I was so ugly my parents had to hang a pork chop around my neck to get the dog to play with me. #Quote by Rodney Dangerfield
Parent quotes by R.D. Laing
#198. From the moment of birth, when the Stone-Age baby confronts the twentieth-century mother, the baby is subjected to these forces of violence called love, as its father and mother and their parents and their parents before them, have been. These forces are mainly concerned with destroying most of its potential. #Quote by R.D. Laing
Parent quotes by Stephen Fry
#199. Parent power is not a sign of democracy, it is a sign of barbarism. We are to regard education as a service industry, like a laundry, parents are the customers, teachers the washers, children the dirty linen. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. And what in the name of boiling hell do parents know about education? How many educated people are there in the world? I could name seventeen or eighteen. #Quote by Stephen Fry
Parent quotes by Evan Esar
#200. Children grow out of childhood, but parents never grow out of parenthood. #Quote by Evan Esar
