Family quotes
Family
I once read cooking is something you do for your family. But when youĂre alone you sometimes have to treat yourself like family. And now that my apartmentĂs redolent with the smell of food it feels more like a home than a box where I hang my hat.

- Waiter Rant
Those expressions are omitted which can not with propriety be read aloud in the family.

- Bowdler, Thomas
He that raises a large family does, indeed, while he lives to observe them, stand a broader mark for sorrow; but then he stands a broader mark for pleasure too.

- Franklin, Benjamin
I've learned that all a person has in life is family and friends. If you lose those, you have nothing, so friends are to be treasured more than anything else in the world.

- Trey Parker and Matt Stone
Family dinners are more often than not an ordeal of nervous indigestion, preceded by hidden resentment and ennui and accompanied by psychosomatic jitters.

- M. F. K. Fisher
A family is a place where minds come in contact with one another.

- Buddha
Our society is not a community, but merely a collection of isolated family units.

- Solanis, Valerie
Those old faces, in Pasadena, California, and Tucson, Arizona, and Dallas, crumpling in hatred and fear at the mention of the United Nations or those liberals in government who constitute for them the fifth column of communism, yearn for an America that is as far from the society of the present as is the extended family system in village India.

- Segal, Ronald
He didn't dare to, because his father had a weak heart and habitually threatened to drop dead if anybody hurt his feelings. You may have noticed that people with weak hearts are the tyrants of English married life.

- Shaw, George Bernard
A genius is the man in whom you are least likely to find the power of attending to anything insipid or distasteful in itself. He breaks his engagements, leaves his letters unanswered, neglects his family duties incorrigibly, because he is powerless to turn his attention down and back from those more interesting trains of imagery with which his genius constantly occupies his mind.

- William James
Providing for one's family as a good husband and father is a water-tight excuse for making money hand over fist. Greed may be a sin, exploitation of other people might, on the face of it, look rather nasty, but who can blame a man for doing the best for his children?

- Figes, Eva
People who have good relationships at home are more effective in the marketplace.

- Ziglar, Zig
The family is the school of duties... founded on love.

- Adler, Felix
I don't have to look up my family tree, because I know that I'm the sap.

- Allen, Fred A.
All people are your relatives, therefore expect only trouble from them.

- Proverb, Chinese
A family is a unit composed not only of children but of men, women, an occasional animal, and the common cold.

- Ogden Nash
DELUSION, n. The father of a most respectable family, comprising Enthusiasm, Affection, Self-denial, Faith, Hope, Charity and many other goodly sons and daughters. All hail, Delusion! Were it not for thee The world turned topsy-turvy we should see; For Vice, respectable with cleanly fancies, Would fly abandoned Virtue's gross advances. Mumfrey Mappel

- Ambrose Bierce
Women's liberationists spread the word that the only peaceful family is one in which either the wife is enslaved or the husband is androgynous.

- Tyell, R. Emmett
Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend... when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that's present -- love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure -- the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience Heaven on earth.

- Breathnach, Sarah Ban
I think the ideal situation for a family is to be completely incestuous.

- Burroughs, William S.
