Famous quotes containing the words popular and/or piety:

    Parents’ ability to survive a child’s unabating needs, wants, and demands...varies enormously. Some people can give and give....Whether children are good or bad, brilliant or just about normal, enormously popular or born loners, they keep their cool and say just the right thing at all times...even when they are miserable themselves, inexhaustible springs of emotional energy, reserved just for children, keep flowing unabated.
    Stella Chess (20th century)

    Pardon, my Mother Church, if I consent
    That Angels led him when from thee he went,
    For even in Error sure no Danger is
    When joyn’d with so much Piety as His.
    Abraham Cowley (1618–1667)
