Famous quotes containing the word family:

    It seems to me that upbringings have themes. The parents set the theme, either explicitly or implicitly, and the children pick it up, sometimes accurately and sometimes not so accurately.... The theme may be “Our family has a distinguished heritage that you must live up to” or “No matter what happens, we are fortunate to be together in this lovely corner of the earth” or “We have worked hard so that you can have the opportunities we didn’t have.”
    Calvin Trillin (20th century)

    Our children need to be able to see us take a stand for a value and against injustices, be those values and injustices in the family room, the boardroom, the classroom, or on the city streets.
    Barbara Coloroso (20th century)

    —the dark ajar, the rocks breaking with light,
    and undisturbed, unbreathing flame,
    colorless, sparkless, freely fed on straw,
    and, lulled within, a family with pets,
    —and looked and looked our infant sight away.
    Elizabeth Bishop (1911–1979)
