Famous quotes containing the word families:

    What peaches and what penumbras! Whole families shopping at night!
    Aisles full of husbands! Wives in the avocados, babies in the
    tomatoes!—and you, Garcia Lorca, what were you doing down by
    the watermelons?
    Allen Ginsberg (b. 1926)

    The authoritarian child-rearing style so often found in working-class families stems in part from the fact that parents see around them so many young people whose lives are touched by the pain and delinquency that so often accompanies a life of poverty. Therefore, these parents live in fear for their children’s future—fear that they’ll lose control, that the children will wind up on the streets or, worse yet, in jail.
    Lillian Breslow Rubin (20th century)

    Women have entered the work force . . . partly to express their feelings of self-worth . . . partly because today many families would not survive without two incomes, partly because they are not at all sure their marriages will last. The day of the husband as permanent meal-ticket is over, a fact most women recognize, however they feel about “women’s liberation.”
    Robert Neelly Bellah (20th century)
