A Quote by Dr. Paul W. Popenoe on automobiles, cheerfulness, children, day, fatherhood, good, justice, money, praise, respect, and responsibility

How you can prevent it! Set them a good example, keep cheerful, especially father's - let your children know you are pleased with them, (find something to praise them for even if it is only a hug at the end of the day) talk things over with your children, plat with them, respect them, give them responsibility, don't allow children to have too much money to just spend as they want, don't get them a car until they can pay for it and take care of the expenses.

A Quote by Dave Barry on automobiles, dogs, and needs

Dogs feel very strongly that they should always go with you in the car, in case the need should arise for them to bark violently at nothing right in your ear.

A Quote by Carrie Snow on automobiles and women

It is silly for a woman to go to a male gynecologist. It is like going to an auto mechanic who has never even owned his own car.

A Quote by C. Smith Sumner on ability, automobiles, beauty, boldness, children, confusion, danger, environment, fatherhood, garden, god, indecision, life, pollution, and sharing

The Bee Story I want to share something with you. A few days ago, I was stopped at a large, busy intersection waiting for a long light. Not really looking at anything in particular, my eyes moved about until I noticed a honey bee on the street alongside the car. It was near a bold white line which was between my lane and the left turn lane. The bee was not flying in a lush garden among beautiful flowers and shrubs and trees, in the cool clean air with quietness and beauty all around it. Instead, it had lowered itself to walk on the hot pavement surrounded by noise, pollution, heat and great threats to its very life. It crawled onto the line and seemed to be pulled toward the other side. But then it resisted and wandered back. Back and forth it went, indecisive about whether it would cross over or not. The traffic was now moving in the left turn lane and presented a grave danger. Finally the little bee, perhaps confused, being in an environment to which it was not accustomed, and not using the abilities that God had given it, drifted over the line and headed directly into foreign territory. Two tires went by quickly without harming the bee although ruffling its wings a bit. It could see that it could stand up to any danger so it carried on. Then came a bus and, in a split second, its life was snuffed out. It perished on the wrong side of the line. This is a true story about one unfortunate bee. It has been acted out, set in different environments, in the lives of many of the children of our Heavenly Father.

Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than going to a garage makes you an automobile.

A Quote by Bertrand Arthur William Russell on anger, automobiles, behavior, justice, and energy

It is a waste of energy to be angry with a man who behaves badly, just as it is to be angry with a car that won't go.

A Quote by Arthur Milton on abuse, automobiles, desires, home, life, needs, practicality, and service

Life without credit would be horrid. Life with too much credit is worse than horrid - its a nightmare. Credit always costs. Whenever you say "charge it!" You are paying something more, in one way or another, than you would pay for the same item or service in cash. There is a plus to credit if one can use it wisely. For a home, for an automobile, for schooling, etc. But take care - don't abuse it. Stay well below "your desires." And pay off as quickly as you can. Take care of what you have and have as little as you really need. Buy "used" when practical. Make do with what you have until you can pay cash for consumable items.
