Hoover, of the FBI, explained that juvenile delinquents seldom come from homes in which: Parents try to understand their children and find time to cultivate their friendship and love. Parents of integrity face facts and live by the truth. Parents live within their means and give their children examples in thrift, security, and stability. Parents are industrious and teach their children that most of life's good things come only from hard work. Parents have worthwhile goals in life and seek to have their children join them in their attainment. Parents have common sense , a capacity for friendship and a sense of humor. Parents live in harmony with each other and do not quarrel in presence of their children Parents have ideals and a compelling urge to serve rather than to be served. Parents are unswervingly loyal to their own children, but can express righteous indignation and chastise them when necessary. Parents decisions are controlled, not by what their children desire, but by what they need.

A Quote by J. B. Phillips on argument, christ, christianity, god, harmony, jesus, life, love, people, problems, purpose, religion, teaching, thought, truth, work, and world

Suppose Christianity is not a religion but a way of life, a falling in love with God, and, through Him, a falling in love with our fellows. Of course, such a way is hard and costly, but it is also joyous and rewarding even in the here-and-now. People who follow that Way know beyond all possible argument that they are in harmony with the purpose of God, that Christ is with them and in them as they set about His work in our disordered world. If anyone thinks this is perilous and revolutionary teaching, so much the better. That is exactly what they thought of the teaching of Jesus Christ. The light He brought to bear upon human affairs is almost unbearably brilliant: but it is the light of Truth, and in that light human problems can be solved.

A Quote by I Ching on change, creativity, destiny, harmony, and nature

The way of the creative works through change and transformation, so that each thing receives its true nature and destiny and comes into permanent accord with the great harmony: this is what furthers and what perseveres.

A Quote by Herbert Spencer on character, conservatism, harmony, and idealism

Conservatism defends those coercive arrangements which a still-lingering savageness makes requisite. Radicalism endeavours to realize a state more in harmony with the character of the ideal man.

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on confidence, divinity, friendship, harmony, idealism, life, love, and truth

Between whom there is hearty truth, there is love; and in proportion to our truthfulness and confidence in one another, our lives are divine and miraculous, and answer to our ideal. . . . Friends do not live in harmony merely, as some say, but in melody.

A Quote by George Wharton James on books, church, companions, earth, education, fanaticism, genius, god, government, harmony, heart, life, literature, mind, parenthood, power, prejudice, principles, prophets, reason, superiority, and time

Who can explain Joseph Smith? What are "revelations from God"? What is their test? Is it not beyond reason that a lad, born of poor parents, devoid of any save the commonest education, too poor to buy books, should have accomplished what he did in less than 40 years, unless there was some great reason for it? Let any one, even a literary genius, after 40 years of life, try to write a companion volume to the Book of Mormon, and then almost daily for a number of years give out "revelations" that internally harmonize one with another, at the same time formulate a system of doctrine for a church, introduce many new principles, resuscitate extinct priesthoods and formulate a system of Church government which has no superior upon earth . . . to deny such a man a wonderful power over the human heart and intellect is absurd. Only fanatical prejudice can ignore it. However he may be accounted for by the reasoning mind, Joseph Smith, the Mormon Prophet was one of the wonders of his time.
