Famous quotes containing the words major and/or ports:

    True spoiling is nothing to do with what a child owns or with amount of attention he gets. he can have the major part of your income, living space and attention and not be spoiled, or he can have very little and be spoiled. It is not what he gets that is at issue. It is how and why he gets it. Spoiling is to do with the family balance of power.
    Penelope Leach (20th century)

    All places that the eye of heaven visits
    Are to a wise man ports and happy havens.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
