Famous quotes containing the words skills, fine and/or motor:

    We have been told over and over about the importance of bonding to our children. Rarely do we hear about the skill of letting go, or, as one parent said, “that we raise our children to leave us.” Early childhood, as our kids gain skills and eagerly want some distance from us, is a time to build a kind of adult-child balance which permits both of us room.
    Joan Sheingold Ditzion (20th century)

    General McLaidlaw: Lena will never marry. She’s not the marrying sort. I see no reason to worry. There’s enough to care for her for the rest of her life.
    Mrs. McLaidlaw: I suppose you’re right, dear. I’m afraid she is rather spinsterish.
    General McLaidlaw: What’s wrong with that. The old maid’s a respectable institution. All women are not alike. Lena has intellect and a fine solid character.
    Samson Raphaelson (1896–1983)

    What shall we do with country quiet now?
    A motor drones insanely in the blue
    Like a bad bird in a dream.
    Babette Deutsch (1895–1982)
