"Family life is full of major and minor crises - 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."
"Home sweet home. This is the place to find happiness.
If one doesn't find it here, one doesn't find it anywhere."
M. K. Soni
"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
"My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the world."
Unknown Monk, from I Wanted To Change The World
"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."
"There is great comfort and inspiration in the feeling of close human relationships and its bearing on our mutual fortunes - a powerful force, to overcome the 'tough breaks' which are certain to come to most of us from time to time."
"A family is a place
where principles are hammered
and honed on the anvil of
everyday living." Charles Swindoll
