A Quote by Carlos Castaneda on anger, disillusionment, friendship, history, parenthood, and relatives

Personal history must be constantly renewed by telling parents, relatives, and friends everything one does. On the other hand, for the warrior who has no personal history, no explanations are needed; nobody is angry or disillusioned with his acts. And above all, no one pins him down with their thoughts and their expectations.

Carlos Castaneda (1931 -)

A Quote by Brian Tracy on blessings, children, decisions, goals, and parenthood

If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on acting, day, exercise, freedom, life, parenthood, people, and society

People who exercise their embryonic freedom day after day, little by little, expand that freedom. People who do not will find that it withers until they are literally ''being lived.'' They are acting out scripts written by parents, associates and society.

Stephen Covey (1932 -)

A Quote by Wilbur F. Crafts on babies, god, growth, men, mistakes, parenthood, rest, silence, truth, and work

"Who made you?" a boy of ten was asked. He stood in thoughtful silence for a moment and then, measuring the length of a baby with his hands, replied: "God made me this long, and I "growed the rest." The mistake that was his in leaving out God in his growth suggests the truth that we are partly self-made men. God and parenthood and birthplace partly make us, but we must make the rest by will and work.

A Quote by Vladimir Ilich Lenin on children, communism, hatred, and parenthood

We must hate - hatred is the basis of communism. Children must be taught to hate their parents if they are not communists.

A Quote by U.S. Supreme Court on birth, children, college, community, computers, contentment, control, family, government, home, information, internet, judgment, parenthood, speech, and thought

Under the [Communications Decency Act], a parent allowing her 17 year old to use the family computer to obtain information on the Internet that she, in her parental judgment, deems appropriate could face a lengthy prison term. . . . Similarly, a parent who sent his 17 year old college freshman information on birth control via e mail could be incarcerated even though neither he, his child, nor anyone in their home community, found the material "indecent" or "patently offensive," if the college town's community thought otherwise. The breadth of this content based restriction of speech imposes an especially heavy burden on the Government to explain why a less restrictive provision would not be as effective as the CDA. It has not done so.

When a parent decides to act like one of the children and begins to scream and yell at the child, all opportunity for teaching is lost.
