"People come and go in our lives, but a beauty of life is that
our family is always there."
"Every year Christmas comes around again and forces us to deal with God in the context of demanding and inconvenient
children; gatherings of family members, many of whom we spend the rest of the year avoiding; all the crasser forms
of greed and commercialized materiality; garish lights and decorations. Or maybe the other way around: Christmas
forces us to deal with all the mess of our humanity in the context of God who has already entered that mess in the
glorious birth of Jesus."
"Take care of your closest friends and family."
Mauricio González Vidal, Lead yourself to Real Success in just 15 Minutes
"Often we think of love in terms of people, whether they are friends,
family, or romantic partners."
Janet Springer, Unbreakable Willpower
"In fact, what will make you successful as a business partner, artist,
sports player, individual, family member, or performer, is that X-factor that

Quotes abut being Happy |
"Never be afraid to ask for help, especially when you have good friends
or family who are likely more than willing to help out."
Michelle Stewart, De-Stress Your Life
"Let your friends and family officially know what your new venture is.
Don't miss this step. So often people start a business and think all their
friends and family might know, but really they don't."
Amy Dix, Brand New You
"'No man (or woman) is an island' and I was terrified of upsetting my family,
my friends and my colleagues by making changes in my life which could
affect their lives too, directly or indirectly."
Jenny Clift, The Music Inside
"Too much TV time, while it may seem like a fun family activity,
too much of it can shift your attention from each other to the TV."
Jake Smith, 10 Steps To A Happier Life
"Family life is full of major and minor crisis - the ups and downs of health,
success and failure in career, marriage, and divorce- and all kinds of characters. It is tied to places and events and histories. With all of these felt details, life etches itself into memory and personality. It's difficult to imagine anything more nourishing to the soul."
"The most important things in life are your friends, family, health, good humor and a positive attitude towards life. If you have these then you have everything!"
"Some of us are so self-reliant that we won't ask for help from our
family members or close friends. You can't do it all, all the time, by yourself."
"Building a family plan with expectations and accountability for all
members builds up the family and motivates each person to do their
personal best everyday."
Keith and Maya Traver, Parental Leadership
"The lack of emotional security of our American young people is due,
I believe, to their isolation from the larger family unit. No two people -
no mere father and mother - as I have often said, are enough to provide
emotional security for a child. He needs to feel himself one in a world of kinfolk, persons of variety in age and temperament, and yet allied to himself by an indissoluble bond which he cannot break if he could, for nature has welded him into it before he was born."
Pearl S. Buck
"One dangerous and sadly truthful pieces about family is this:
The people closest to you will try the hardest to
hold you in your place because they are comfortable with
how they currently know you."
Jason Pockrandt, The Confident Father's Guidebook

"When I think of any of my successes,
I am thankful to God from whom all blessings flow, and to my family and friends who enrich my life."
"Family life contributes immensely to an individual's happiness. Only in a happy
homelife can complete contentment be found."
Dorothea S. Koppliln
"Love wisdom like a sister; make insight a beloved member of your family."
Proverbs 7:9 (NLT)
"Families, like individuals, are unique."
Norman Vincent Peale
"Somehow the home without God is missing a vital ingredient; we cannot
enter fully into the true blessing of family living if our homes are not lifted up
to God for his blessing."
"Family consists of people that love and Family consists of people that
love and care about each other mutually, and no matter what our
background is, we can have people to call family."
John Shea, Strategic Empathy
"When you wrap your child warmly every day with layers of your
unconditional, healthy love before you send him out into the world, he will rarely
feel the cold chill that often comes with life's changing seasons."
Shadonna Richards, Think and Be Happy
"We should make some time in between and organize our life,
relax ourselves and spend more time with our family, friends, and
pursue our own hobbies."
Robert Gallagher, Stress Management: An Easy to Understand Book Full of Tips and Tricks to Fight Against Everyday Stress
"When we treat them like the human beings they are, show our
appreciation for their excellent work, and then encourage them to
spend the weekend with their families, they are going to return to the
workplace with renewed vigor, eager to prove their worth to the project
and to the company."
William C. Oakes, Christlike Leadership: Leadership that Starts with an Attitude
"Making your spare time to look towards the precious things you have,
the pastimes, and family makes life more satisfied and agreeable, as
well as it will definitely help you in being more concentrated at work as well."
Adam Green, Greatest Life Lessons, Observations and Motivational Quotes from Bill Gates
"The family unit is the first group of people that you are a part of.
While there are obvious exceptions, there's usually an intrinsic trust
that is built in to your family."
Tom Meitner, Living with Intent: How to Choose Joy and Success, and Change Your Life in 7 Days
"That is not to say that children who feel jealousy or who act out of jealousy
have poor family values (after all jealousy is a completely normal emotion,)

jealousy to try to help them to understand why their behavior may not

"There is a great work/home life balance that you need to achieve.
If you let your home life eat into your work life, you lose motivation
quickly and if work life imposes too much on your family time, then your
family time becomes less satisfactory."
