Famous quotes containing the words johnson and/or life:

    Every man thinks meanly of himself for not having been a soldier, or not having been at sea.
    —Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    Parenting is not logical. If it were, we would never have to read a book, never need a family therapist, and never feel the urge to call a close friend late at night for support after a particularly trying bedtime scene. . . . We have moments of logic, but life is run by a much larger force. Life is filled with disagreement, opposition, illusion, irrational thinking, miracle, meaning, surprise, and wonder.
    Jeanne Elium (20th century)
