Famous quotes containing the words work and/or children:

    But this rough magic
    I here abjure, and when I have required
    Some heavenly music—which even now I do—
    To work mine end upon their senses that
    This airy charm is for, I’ll break my staff,
    Bury it certain fathoms in the earth,
    And deeper than did ever plummet sound
    I’ll drown my book.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Once children grow up, they don’t listen to their mothers.
    Chinese proverb.
