Those who achieve the extraordinary are usually the most ordinary because they have nothing to prove to anybody. Be Humble.

Successes are those highlights of life we look back on with a smile. But it's the day to day grind of getting them that defines the laugh lines etched until the end of time. Enjoy each moment along the way

It's the 'everyday' experiences we encounter along the journey to who we wanna be that will define who we are when we get there.

Explore, Experience, Then Push Beyond.
Abhijit Naskar
Luxury is the enemy of growth. This is the one thing that I learnt from my father, and I approve of it fully. Abundance is neither good nor healthy for the growth of a child's mind.
Abhijit Naskar
Feed your child ideas of peace, harmony and compassion but at the same time give them courage to defend their identity and dignity.
Abhijit Naskar
If you are financially affluent, think of adopting a kid and raise him or her right next to your biological offspring. And let your love become the proof of your parenthood, instead of your DNA.
Abhijit Naskar
Let them learn at school whatever they learn to pass the examinations, but at home let the education that you provide be the kind that widens their perceptions and takes away the germs of prejudices that infect them while they are out in the world.
Abhijit Naskar
Let your child see you doing a good deed instead of you telling him or her to do it, and the little child shall one day grow up to become a real kind human being.
Albert Schweitzer
There are only three ways to teach a child. The first is by example, the second is by example, the third is by example.
Alexander Lowen
There are many roles that people play and many images that they project. There is, for example, the nice man who is always smiling and agreeable. Such a nice man, people say. He never gets angry. The facade always covers its opposite expression. Inside, such a person is full of rage that he dares not acknowledge or show. Some men put up a tough exterior to hide a very sensitive, childlike quality. Even failure can be a role. Many masochistic characters engage in the game of failure to cover an inner feeling of superiority. An outward show of superiority could bring down on them the jealous wrath of the father and the threat of castration. As long as they act like failures they can retain some sexuality, since they are not a threat to her father.
Alexis de Tocqueville
Nations, as well as men, almost always betray the most prominent features of their future destiny in their earliest years.
Alexis de Tocqueville
When justice is more certain and more mild, is at the same time more efficacious.

Father has a strengthening character like the sun and mother has a soothing temper like the moon.

Parents expect only two things from their children, obedience in their childhood and respect in their adulthood.
Anna Aquino
I had long since wished that they would have been born with a dictionary sized how-to guide in my placenta. It would have been custom printed for each child by God. Unfortunately, that didn't happen. I'd been forced to walk through the minefield of parenthood feeling like I was blindfolded and hopping on one leg. Surely my kids should understand that I was trying to know what I was doing, but the verdict still seemed out at the moment.
Bill Mauldin
A soldier's life revolves around his mail. Like many others, I've been able to follow my kid's progress from the day he was born until now he is able to walk and talk a little, and although I have never seen him I know him very well.
C. JoyBell C.
I think that the best thing we can do for our children is to allow them to do things for themselves, allow them to be strong, allow them to experience life on their own terms, allow them to take the subway... let them be better people, let them believe more in themselves.
Caitlin Moran
The aphorism If you want something done, ask a busy woman is in direct acknowledgment of the efficiency boot camp parenthood puts you through.
Caitlin Moran
And the question is always When are you going to have kids? Rather than Do you want to have kids?
Charles Dickens
It is the most miserable thing to feel ashamed at home.

I have a pretty large experience of boys, and you're a bad set of fellows. Now mind!
Charles Dickens
I assumed my first undivided responsibility.
Charles Dickens
It was not because I had a strong sense of the virtue of industry, but because Joe had a strong sense of the virtue of industry, that I worked with tolerable zeal against the grain.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Many tradesmen export their best commodities-the Christian should not. He should have all his conversation everywhere of the best savour; but let him have a care to put forth the sweetest fruit of spiritual life and testimony in his own family.
Christopher Hitchens
Incidentally, I have also learned a bit about the importance of avoiding feminine embarrassment ('Daddy,' wrote Sophia when she enrolled at the New School where I teach, 'people will ask why is old Christopher Hitchens kissing that girl?') and shall now cease and desist.
D.A. Carson
... the worst possible heritage to leave with children: high spiritual pretensions and low performance.
Dorothy Parker
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant, and let the air out of the tires.
Elizabeth Gaskell
A wise parent humors the desire for independent action, so as to become the friend and advisor when his absolute rule shall cease.
Frank Herbert
My son will wear the title well, the Duke thought, and realized with a sudden chill that this was another death thought.
Frank Herbert
It doesn't follow that the riots mean permanent hostility toward him.
Gillian Flynn
My dad had limitations. That's what my good-hearted mom always told us. He had limitations, but he meant no harm. It was kind of her to say, but he did do harm.
Harold Bloom
Originality must compound with inheritance.
Hope Jahren
My mother taught me that reading is a kind of work, and that every paragraph merits exertion, and in this way, I learned how to absorb difficult books.
Janvier Chouteu-Chando
No true...father would be unconcerned about discord in his family that may cause it to disintegrate in his absence...
John Irving
When (The World According To) Garp was published, people who'd lost children wrote to me. ''I lost one, too,'' they told me. I confessed to them that I hadn't lost any children. I'm just a father with a good imagination. In my imagination, I lose my children every day. (afterword)
John Taylor Gatto
Shouldn't we also ask ourselves what the consequences are of scrambling to provide the most of everything to our children in a world of fast dwindling resources?

Babies cry at birth because it is the first time they experience separation from love.

At best, IQ contributes about 20 percent to the factors that determine life success, which leaves 80 percent to other forces.
Martin Luther
In the midst of the affliction He counsels, strengthens confirms, nourishes, and favors us.... More over, when we have repented, He instantly remits the sins as well as the punishments. In the same manner parents ought to handle their children.
Matt Chandler
Our ferocious commitment to our children's safety and success, along with our genuine love, drives us to endure the often unhappy experience of disciplining our children.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
The answer to the question 'How many children do you have?' and the one to the question 'How many children are you raising?' are not identical in all cases: some men are not taking care of their own children, some are knowingly or unknowingly raising other men's children, and some do not even know that they each have a child, another child, or other children.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Not a few millions of parents strongly hope that their own children will step in by instantly becoming their own parents' foster parents, if and when the parents reach their second childhood.

One of the main functions of a push-up bra is to lower the number of mothers who seem like mothers.

Taking good care of your husband or wife is the best way to thank their parent or parents for having taken good care of them.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
There would definitely be way fewer instances of cheating, if the average couple did not have sex only when the woman feels like it.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
The primary goal of a righteous parent who has a daughter is to minimize the number of boys and men for whom their daughter will have willingly opened her legs come her wedding day; the closer to zero, the more righteous they will seem.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Being a bad parent is a sign of not having learned from experience.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Passing their toilet training is the very last thing that some adults did that has made their parents proud of them.

Some men do not know the father of 'their' children.

Most people who are would each not be in love with their partner, if they did not have the kind of genitals they have.
Orson Scott Card
Fatherhood to us was an act of passion, soon forgot; but not to Orem ap Avonap. Never guessing that the blond and happy farmer was no blood of his, Orem had taken a part of that simple man into himself and saved it for this time. At any time in the Palace he might run by, Youth on this shoulders or, as time went by, toddling along behind.
Paul C. Nagel
The author points out that the moral failure of Abigail Adams' brother focused her on disciplining her children, and herself, so that they did not come to the same end.
Philip Zaleski
Oxford in the Inklings' day was not so different in look and smell from the Oxford of today. Then, as now, one was tempted to fantasize one's surroundings as a Camelot of intellectual knight-errantry or an Eden of serene contemplation. Then, as now, there was bound to be disappointment.
Pope Paul VI
Married love, therefore, requires of husband and wife the full awareness of their obligations in the matter of responsible parenthood, which today, rightly enough, is much insisted upon, but which at the same time should be rightly understood. Thus, we do well to consider responsible parenthood in the light of its varied legitimate and interrelated aspects.
Richard Dawkins
Faith can be very very dangerous, and deliberately to implant it into the vulnerable mind of an innocent child is a grievous wrong.
Rick Perlstein
College was at the heart of his sentimental imagination.

What a kid I got, I told him about the birds and the bees and he told me about the butcher and my wife.
Seth Adam Smith
I didn't just see a child in my dreams
Stephen D. Levitt Stephen J. Dubner
In our society, if someone wants to be a hairstylist or a kickboxer or a hunting guide -or a schoolteacher- he or she must be trained and licensed by a state agency. No such requirement is necessary for parenthood. Anyone with a set of reproductive organs is free to create a child, no questions asked, and raise them as they see fit, so long as there are no visible bruises- and then turn that child over to the school system so the teachers can work their magic. Maybe we are asking too much of the schools and too little of our parents and kids?.
Suzy Kassem
The parent is protector and trainer, but never the ultimate teacher. Every parent is responsible for teaching their kid basic moral conduct, manners, the difference between love and hate, and right from wrong. However, after maturity, the child must set off to seek knowledge on their own. Religion is never to be forced. And you cannot threaten your child with hell and tell them your religion is the only right way. There is no one right way. The many ways to the Creator are as varied as the colors of a rainbow.
Thomas Merton
The married man and the mother of a Christian family, if they are faithful to their obligations, will fulfill a mission that is as great as it is consoling: that of bringing into the world and forming young souls capable of happiness and love, souls capable of sanctification and transformation in Christ.
