You make the beds, you do the dishes -- and six months later you have to start all over again.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/19554/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/19554/ <![CDATA[Each home has been reduced to the bare essentials -- to barer essentials than most primitive people would consider possible. Only one woman's hands to feed the baby, answer the telephone, turn off the gas under the pot that is boiling over, soothe the older child who has broken a toy, and open both doors at once. She is a nutritionist, a child psychologist, an engineer, a production manager, an expert buyer, all in one. Her husband sees her as free to plan her own time, and envies her; she sees him as having regular hours and envies him.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/19552/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/19552/ <![CDATA[Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/19545/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/19545/ <![CDATA[I make no secret of the fact that I would rather lie on a sofa than sweep beneath it.

Her life may also have much sadness and difficulty, that remains far beyond yours. Were it otherwise, she would never have been able to find these words.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/7131/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/7131/ <![CDATA[I think that there were only two people in my high school that were comfortable there, and I think they are both pumping gas now.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/7134/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/7134/ <![CDATA[Sometimes I lie awake at night and ask why me?

A terrible thing: no one to blame.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/4354/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/4354/ <![CDATA[No one is a failure until they blame somebody else.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/4353/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/4353/ <![CDATA[All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you. The only thing blame does is to keep the focus off you when you are looking for external reasons to explain your unhappiness or frustration. You may succeed in making another feel guilty about something by blaming him, but you won't succeed in changing whatever it is about you that is making you unhappy.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/4350/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/4350/ <![CDATA[In passing, also, I would like to say that the first time Adam had a chance he laid the blame on a woman.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/4345/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/4345/ <![CDATA[When we blame, we give away our power.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/4343/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/4343/ <![CDATA[I feel the capacity to care is the thing which gives life its deepest significance.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/7434/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/7434/ <![CDATA[If I were to say, God, why me? about the bad things, then I should have said, God, why me? about the good things that happened in my life.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/7591/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/7591/ <![CDATA[It is the growling man who lives a dog's life.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/7598/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/7598/ <![CDATA[Don't complain that you are not getting what you want, Just be glad you are not getting what you deserve!]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/7638/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/7638/ <![CDATA[The squeaking wheel doesn't always get the grease.

If you have not slept, or if you have slept, or if you have headache, or sciatica, or leprosy, or thunder-stroke, I beseech you, by all angels, to hold your peace, and not pollute the morning.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/7601/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/7601/ <![CDATA[Realize that if you have time to whine and complain about something then you have the time to do something about it.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/7600/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/7600/ <![CDATA[Yes, there are times when something is legitimately not our fault.

This is not to say that fathers have no place, for father-love, with its driving for self-improvement and discipline, is also essential to survival, but that uncorrected father-love, father-love as it were practiced by both parents, is a way to annihilation.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/14267/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/14267/ <![CDATA[Happiness comes more from loving than being loved; and often when our affection seems wounded it is only our vanity bleeding.
