    Schools of fish come to those who wait patiently; if the big ones don’t come, the little ones will.
    Chinese proverb.

    When a toddler uses profanity, don’t make a big deal about it. If you do, you give the child more power. After all, it’s only a word—one that won’t do much harm to anybody. In fact, if you think about it, a nasty word is a step up from hitting or biting someone. So look at it as a sign of growth.
    Lawrence Balter (20th century)

    A ball player’s got to be kept hungry to become a big leaguer. That’s why no boy from a rich family ever made the big leagues.
    Joe Dimaggio (b. 1914)

    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)

    And the wind shall say “Here were decent godless people;
    Their only monument the asphalt road
    And a thousand lost golf balls.”
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
