Text Quotes
There aren’t many great adverts for marriage or parenthood. It always looks so stressful, and that’s what I’ve been scared of. What you don’t realise is how much you’re going to get back  (Parenthood Quotes) Becoming a mother cannot help but change things. An author’s life is reflected in their writing, whether they want it to be or not, and parenthood is one of the biggest life changes there is  (Parenthood Quotes) The most convincing argument against early parenthood is that you are in a relationship that is likely to fall apart before that child grows up  (Parenthood Quotes) I know how sobering and exhausting parenthood is. But the reality is that our children’s future depends on us as parents. Because we know that the first years truly last forever  (Parenthood Quotes) Like most parents, I want everything for my kids that I didn’t have. But I don’t intend to spoil them. I just enjoy everything that comes naturally with parenthood  (Parenthood Quotes) Cloning looks like a degrading of parenthood and a perversion of the right relation between parents and children  (Parenthood Quotes) The central struggle of parenthood is to let our hopes for our children outweigh our fears  (Parenthood Quotes) Parenthood is an endless series of small events, periodic conflicts, and sudden crises which call for a response. The response is not without consequence: it affects personality for better or for worse  (Parenthood Quotes) Oh, high is the price of parenthood, and daughters may cost you double. You dare not forget, as you thought you could, that youth is a plague and a trouble  (Parenthood Quotes) Perhaps the best function of parenthood is to teach the young creature to love with safety, so that it may be able to venture unafraid when later emotion comes; the thwarting of the instinct to love is the root of all sorrow and not sex only but divinity itself is insulted when it is repressed. To disapprove, to condemn the human soul shrivels under barren righteousness  (Parenthood Quotes) Parenthood, like death, is an event for which it is nearly impossible to be prepared. It brings you into a new relationship with the fact of your own existence, a relationship in which one may be rendered helpless  (Parenthood Quotes) Anything that opens you up emotionally is going to impact your acting. Parenthood, becoming a mom, certainly does that  (Parenthood Quotes) The essence of parenthood is to make children think that they are the most handsome, intelligent, brilliant person in the world  (Parenthood Quotes) I think parenthood is a wonderful balancing act. On the one hand, you want to spend as much time with your children as possible. On the other hand, you want to set an example for them to see that you’re fulfilled in your life and in your work  (Parenthood Quotes) We both liked children; we just didn’t want any ourselves. There were children everywhere, and we saw no reason to start our own brand. Young couples plunge into parenthood and about half the time they end up with some ghastly problem on their hands. We thought we’d leave that to others  (Parenthood Quotes) Parenthood offers many lessons in patience and sacrifice. But ultimately, it is a lesson in humility. The very best thing about your life is a short stage in someone else’s story  (Parenthood Quotes) No woman shall have the legal right to bear a child without a permit for parenthood  (Parenthood Quotes) Parenthood abruptly catapults us into a permanent relationship with a stranger, and the more alien the stranger, the stronger the whiff of negativity. We depend on the guarantee in our children’s faces that we will not die. Children whose defining quality annihilates that fantasy of immortality are a particular insult; we must love them for themselves, and not for the best of ourselves in them, and that is a great deal harder to do. Loving our own children is an exercise for the imagination  (Parenthood Quotes) The idea was to focus on the primal drama of parenthood: the way from moment to moment you swing from comforter to tormentor, just as kids simultaneously light up our lives and drive us nuts. I was trying to capture that strange, bipolar quality of parenthood. For all that being a parent is normal statistically, it’s not normal psychologically. It produces some of the most extreme emotions you’ll ever have  (Parenthood Quotes) Parenting classes should be mandatory, whether you are adopting or not, and would include an evaluation of your current physical, mental and financial state as well as how ready you are to take on the rigors of parenthood. Our children are our most precious natural resource, and there is absolutely no other way to parent but to put them first  (Parenthood Quotes) I don’t consciously think of how parenthood has changed me but I’m sure it must have  (Parenthood Quotes) I work, and then I leave the office, and I’m with my kids and just sort of enjoy them on a visceral level, and I don’t feel like I’m exorcising my own deep ideas about parenthood and about how my life will come into play in my work  (Parenthood Quotes) How much of the fun of parenthood lay in watching the children remake, with delighted wonder, one’s own discoveries  (Parenthood Quotes) Grandparents are given a second chance to enjoy parenthood with fewer of its tribulations and anxieties  (Parenthood Quotes) I suspect that marriage is like parenthood: every last one of us is an amateur at it  (Parenthood Quotes) I suspect that marriage is like parenthood: every last one of us is an amateur at it  (Parenthood Quotes) Among the most valuable but least appreciated experiences parenthood can provide are the opportunities it offers for exploring, reliving, and resolving one’s own childhood problems in the context of one’s relation to one’s child  (Parenthood Quotes) If grandparents want to have a meaningful and constructive role, the first lesson they must learn is that becoming a grandparent is not having a second chance at parenthood!  (Parenthood Quotes) Parenthood is the passing of a baton, followed by a lifelong disagreement as to who dropped it  (Parenthood Quotes) She’d been criticized for holding the reins of parenthood too tightly, of controlling her children too completely, but she didn’t know how to let go. From the moment she’d first decided to become a mother, it had been an epic battle  (Parenthood Quotes)
