*To be an effective parent, you have to put aside all that you suffered as a child and make an effort to give your child a better set of memories than what you’re stuck with. That involves love, not things in case you don’t know.
*You will never please your spouse perfectly, but that’s no excuse not to try. Whatever you do, don’t use it as an excuse to give up.
Faced with the choice between changing ones mind and proving that there is no need to do so, almost everyone gets busy on the proof.
John Kenneth Galbraith
