Famous quotes containing the words house and/or tide:

    Somewhere between the overly intrusive parent and the parent who forgets about us after we’re out of the house is the ideally empathetic parent who recognizes the relativity of choice, the errors of his or her own way, and our need to find our own way and who can stay with us at a respectful distance while we do it.

    As Time is over you, and mystery,
    And memory, the flood that does not flow.
    Kenneth Slessor (1901–1971)
