Famous quotes containing the words types and/or budget:

    Our children evaluate themselves based on the opinions we have of them. When we use harsh words, biting comments, and a sarcastic tone of voice, we plant the seeds of self-doubt in their developing minds.... Children who receive a steady diet of these types of messages end up feeling powerless, inadequate, and unimportant. They start to believe that they are bad, and that they can never do enough.
    Stephanie Martson (20th century)

    You can fool all the people all the time if the advertising is right and the budget is big enough.
    Joseph E. Levine (b. 1905)
