Some Quotations

On parents, found during research for the last post.

Parents are like shuttles on a loom. They join the threads of the past with threads of the future and leave their own bright patterns as they go. (Fred Rogers--Mr. Rogers)

Parents ... are sometimes a bit of a disappointment to their children. They don’t fulfil the promise of their early years. (Anthony Powell)

Parents don’t make mistakes because they don’t care, but because they care so deeply. (T. Berry Brazleton)

Parents were invented to make children happy by giving them something to ignore. (Ogden Nash)

I love Fred Rogers. I was raised on his show every day for a good part of my childhood. I hope he and Fulton Sheen found each other in heaven, and are cooperating as co-patrons of modern media.

(Yes, I know Mr. Rogers was a Presbyterian minister, and as such would never be declared a patron of anything, by his church or by ours, but still... there's reality and then there's the subset of reality that was can make dogmatic declarations about.)
