Famous quotes containing the word family:

    With all the attention paid to your new baby, it’s easy for your own feelings and needs to get lost in the shuffle. Although all parents engage in some self-sacrifice for their children, keep in mind that your goal isn’t just to raise a happy, healthy child. You want that child to be part of a happy, healthy family as well.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    A real hangover is nothing to try out family remedies on. The only cure for a real hangover is death.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)

    Grandmothers are to life what the Ph.D. is to education. There is nothing you can feel, taste, expect, predict, or want that the grandmothers in your family do not know about in detail.
    Lois Wyse (20th century)
