If Parents don't show children the important things, undesirable things will fill the void we leave.


Every great story happened when someone decided not to give up. —Spryte Loriano
Dare to be what you are, and learn to resign with a good grace all that you are not and to believe in your own individuality. —Henri-Frederic Amiel
Don’t practice until you get it right. Practice until you can’t get it wrong. —Unknown
We all live with the objective of being happy; our lives are all different and yet the same. —Anne Frank
We find greatest joy, not in getting, but in expressing what we are. Men do not really live for honors or for pay; their gladness is not the taking and holding, but in doing, the striving, the building, the living. It is a higher joy to teach than to be taught. It is good to get justice, but better to do it; fun to have things but more to make them. The happy man is he who lives the life of love, not for the honors it may bring, but for the life itself. —R.J. Baughan
It is good to have an end to journey toward, but it is the journey that matters in the end. —Ernest Hemingway
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. —Martin Luther King, Jr.

To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter... to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring — these are some of the rewards of the simple life. —John Burroughs
Beauty is about being comfortable in your own skin. It's about knowing and accepting who you are. —Ellen DeGeneres
The small courtesies sweeten life; the greater, ennoble it. —Christian Nestell Bovee
There is only one happiness in life. To love and be loved. —George Sand (Amantine Aurore Lucile Dupin)
Our soul desires to be understanding, our ego is only concerned with being understood. When you are being understanding you are connected to your soul. —Michaiel Bovenes
You must remember, family is often born of blood, but it doesn't depend on blood. Nor is it exclusive of friendship. Family members can be your best friends, you know. And best friends, whether or not they are related to you, can be your family. —Trenton Lee Stewart
Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly. —Robert F. Kennedy
Family is not an important thing. It's everything. —Michael J. Fox
