The battery in a car works only because it has a positive and a negative. As parents we also must have the same balance and be kind and loving, but also tough when it is necessary.
That man is successful who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much, who has gained the respect of the intelligent men and the love of children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who leaves the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had.
—Robert Louis Stevenson (Scottish Novelist)
To change family life -|Husbands love your wives,|Wives respect your husbands,|Children obey your parents.
If you stop struggling, then you stop life.
—Huey P. Newton
He has achieved success, who has lived well, laughed often and loved much.
—Bessie Anderson Stanley (American Poet)
Perhaps we are looking at this from a wrong perspective; this search for the truth, the meaning of life, the reason of God. We all have this mindset that the answers are so complex and so vast that it is almost impossible to comprehend. I think, on the contrary, that the answers are so simple; so simple that it is staring us straight in the face, screaming its lungs out, and yet we fail to notice it. We’re looking through a telescope, searching the stars for the answer, when the answer is actually a speck of dirt on the telescope lens.
How simple it is to see that all the worry in the world cannot control the future. How simple it is to see that we can only be happy now. And that there will never be a time when it is not now.
Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you’ll never cease to grow.
—Anthony J. D’Angelo
Happiness is not perfected until it is shared.
Life is only a combination of different experiences. Demand to enjoy them all.
