Famous quotes containing the word family:

    Female Virtues are of a Domestick turn. The Family is the proper Province for Private Women to Shine in. If they must be showing their Zeal for the Publick, let it not be against those who are perhaps of the same Family, or at least of the same Religion or Nation, but against those who are the open, professed, undoubted Enemies of their Faith, Liberty, and Country.
    Joseph Addison (1672–1719)

    Respectable means rich, and decent means poor. I should die if I heard my family called decent.
    Thomas Love Peacock (1785–1866)

    The family that perseveres in good works will surely have an abundance of blessings.
    Chinese proverb.
