We spend precious hours fearing the inevitable. It would be wise to use that time adoring our families, cherishing our friends and living our lives.
Maya Angelou (1928-2014)
Hereditary succession has no claim. For all men being originally equals, no one by birth could have the right to set up his own family in perpetual preference to all others for ever, and tho’ himself might deserve some decent degree of honours of his contemporaries, yet his descendants might be far too unworthy to inherit them.
Thomas Paine (1737-1809)
One of the oldest human needs is having someone to wonder where you are when you dont come home at night.
Home is people. Not a place. If you go back there after the people are gone, then all you can see is what is not there any more.
What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family.
My battles with addiction definitely shaped how I am now. They really made me deeply appreciate human contact, and the value of friends and family, how precious that is.
A dog reflects the family life. Whoever saw a frisky dog in a gloomy family, or a sad dog in a happy one? Snarling people have snarling dogs, dangerous people have dangerous ones.
Arthur Conan Doyle
