Famous quotes containing the word major:
“Self-esteem evolves in kids primarily through the quality of our relationships with them. Because they cant see themselves directly, children know themselves by reflection. For the first several years of their lives, you are their major influence. Later on, teachers and friends come into the picture. But especially at the beginning, youre it with a capital I.”
—Stephanie Martson (20th century)
