Famous quotes containing the word family:
“The value of a family is that it cushions and protects while the individual is learning ways of coping. And a supportive social system provides the same kind of cushioning for the family as a whole.”
—Michael W. Yogman, and T. Berry Brazelton (20th century)
“You can read the best experts on child care. You can listen to those who have been there. You can take a whole childbirth and child-care course without missing a lesson. But you wont really know a thing about yourselves and each other as parents, or your baby as a child, until you have her in your arms. Thats the moment when the lifelong process of bringing up a child into the fold of the family begins.”
—Stella Chess (20th century)
“Providing for ones family as a good husband and father is a water-tight excuse for making money hand over fist. Greed may be a sin, exploitation of other people might, on the face of it, look rather nasty, but who can blame a man for doing the best for his children?”
—Eva Figes (b. 1932)
