The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.
"I got to meet Mickey, I got to meet the mouse." ~ From A Commercial
In all of us there is a hunger, marrow-deep, to know our heritage, to know who we are and where we came from.
It is often said that something may survive of a person after his death if that person was an artist and put a little of himself into his work. It is perhaps in the same way that a sort of cutting taken from one person and grafted onto the heart of another continues to carry on its existence even when the person from whom it had been detached has perished.
They that love beyond the world, cannot be separated. Death cannot kill what never dies. Nor can Spirits ever be divided that love and live in the same Divine Principle; the Root and Record of their Friendship. Death is but crossing the world, as Friends to the seas; they live in one another still.
When you look back at your past, look tenderly and gently at all you have been through. Look with the eyes of the soul. See that each experience was necessary to bring you home to your heart.
All good qualities in a child are the result of environment, while all the bad ones are the result of poor heredity on the side of the other parent.
Brillant people talk about ideas
Normal people talk about news
Small minded people talk about other people
Family faces are magic mirrors. Looking at people who belong to us, we see the past, present and future.
Flowers may fade, but fragrant memory lingers
He lives in you.
I am the spirit's janitor. All I do is wipe the windows a bit so you can see out for yourself.
I don't have a family tree I have a forest
It is indeed a desirable thing to be well descended, but the glory belongs to our ancestors.
May the roots of your family tree grow deep and strong.
May you embrace all the rich legacies of your heritage.
Our care should not be to have lived long as to have lived enough.
People will not look forward to posterity who never look back to their ancestors.
Somewhere out there is a unique place for you to help others--a unique life role for you to fill that only you can fill.
The gene pool could use a little chlorine.
The sum total of what I am is my children's heritage.
Time goes on...
I will always be here.
To forget one's ancestors is to be a brook without a source, a tree without a root.
We have not inherited the Earth from our ancestors. We only borrowed it from our children.
