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 George Eliot on change, stability, and truth

Sir Joshua would have been glad to take her portrait; and he would have had an easier task than the historian at least in this, that he would not have had to represent the truth of change - only to give stability to one beautiful moment.

George Eliot (1819 - 1880)

A Quote by George Dantzig on originality, planning, problems, research, stability, time, uncertainty, and world

. . . it is interesting to note that the original problem that started my research is still outstanding - namely the problem of planning or scheduling dynamically over time, particularly planning dynamically under uncertainty. If such a problem could be successfully solved it could eventually through better planning contribute to the well-being and stability of the world.

George Dantzig (1914 - ?)
