Tuesday’s Ten Family Quotes

  1. “The homemaker has the ultimate career. All other careers exist for one purpose only – and that is to support the ultimate career. ”
    ~ C.S. Lewis
  2. “What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family.”
    ~ Mother Teresa
  3. “You must remember, family is often born of blood, but it doesn’t depend on blood. Nor is it exclusive of friendship. Family members can be your best friends, you know. And best friends, whether or not they are related to you, can be your family.”
    ~ Trenton Lee Stewart, The Mysterious Benedict Society
  4. “Show me a family of readers, and I will show you the people who move the world.”

  5. “Home is where you are loved the most and act the worst.”
    ~ Marjorie Pay Hinckley
  6. “To you who are parents, I say, show love to your children. You know you love them, but make certain they know it as well. They are so precious. Let them know. Call upon our Heavenly Father for help as you care for their needs each day and as you deal with the challenges which inevitably come with parenthood. You need more than your own wisdom in rearing them.”
    ~ Thomas S. Monson
  7. “The family.  We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another’s desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together.”
    ~ Erma Bombeck
  8. “No matter how old we get, we never outgrow the need to belong, to feel needed, or to be important in someone else’s life.  We never stop craving hugs, words of praise, or demonstrations of appreciation.  Families must continue to fill those needs, with just as much passion as when our loved ones were children.”
    ~Lorle Campos
  9. “I don’t care how poor a man is; if he has family, he’s rich.”
    ~Dan Wilcox and Thad Mumford, “Identity Crisis,” M*A*S*H
  10. “The surprising simple secret to a great family life is the power of traditions.”
    ~ Lorle Campos
