Family Quotes – What More Could a Family Be About?

Ask anybody out there, what his priorities are in life – Fame, Fortune and Money, and there is a chance that he is going to say, money, because with that, fame and fortune comes quite easily. On the other hand, if you add “family” to these 3 options given above, there is a chance that 99% of the people out there are going to put their family first, especially if they happen to be ladies!

The main reason is because nature has fashioned a woman to be the cherisher and the nurturer of the family, while the man is the Hunter and the preserver and protector of his little family. That is the natural rule which has come down through thousands of years, and even if a person happens to be a comparatively modern sophisticate scoffing at the idea of taking on the responsibility of a family, one knows that in his subconscious, he has a picture of a tight little compact little loving unit, which belongs to him and to which he belongs. That is what a family is all about.

They tell a story about a multimillionaire businessman who died and the whole city came to pay its respects. One of his business competitors, met the son and said, “We are really going to miss your father. You see, I knew your father well.” And the son replied, “You happen to be really lucky there, because I never did.”

So, you might be an extremely successful person in your own right upon Wall Street, but if your little child does not come running out to welcome his daddy at the end of the day to be swung up in his father’s arms and held there lovingly and protectively, you come in the “nothing” category in the business of life.

Many people are under the impression that taking on the responsibility of the family is quite tiresome, but they do not know that it takes a real responsible person to be a father or a mother. It is very easy to be a biological father or a biological mother, but the real mother and the real father is that person who stays awake all night when the baby is teething or colicky, teaches him right from wrong, is there to hold him when he takes his first steps, and in every way shows that he is there to cherish and protect the little one from harm.

One of the most memorable family quotes is said by a man who did not believe in family, because of an unhappy childhood. But he found a good, loyal and faithful woman to love him unconditionally. The moment he picked up his little baby, he took him to the window and said, “Well son, welcome to the world! Look out onto your land out there and see that it is good. I am here to teach you what your mama has taught me, and we shall both protect you, when you need our help. I will teach you to be a good, just and fair man, my son. Amen.”
