Quotes on Parents and
compiled by Patty Crowe
"Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is
to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your
body." If words could describe parenthood, these by Elizabeth Stone may
just sum up the experience for many parents. Meanwhile, Playwright
George Bernard Shaw has given us the much broader observation that,
"Perhaps the greatest social service that can be rendered to the country
and to mankind is to bring up a family." Probably as much has been said
about being a parent as there are drops in the ocean but one thing is
certain - one can not really know what it is like being a parent until
one actually becomes, themselves, a parent.
Compiled from the wisdom of 3000 years of living and life, this book seeks to
personify the joys and experiences common to all parents and to
celebrate the bond between children and their parents.
