Lenses That Bring Everything Into Focus

Famous quotes containing the words focus, lenses and/or bring:

    It’s sad but true that if you focus your attention on housework and meal preparation and diapers, raising children does start to look like drudgery pretty quickly. On the other hand, if you see yourself as nothing less than your child’s nurturer, role model, teacher, spiritual guide, and mentor, your days take on a very different cast.
    Joyce Maynard (20th century)

    Life is a train of moods like a string of beads, and, as we pass through them, they prove to be many-colored lenses which paint the world their own hue, and each shows only what lies in its focus.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I know that you will bring me to death, and to the house appointed for all living.
    Bible: Hebrew, Job 30:23.

    Job, of God.
