Once when I was lost, I saw a policeman, and asked him to help me find my parents. I said to him, "Do you think we`ll ever find them?" He said, "I don`t know kid. There are so many places they can hide."

I chose to love my friends. I chose to love my wife. I think I even chose to love my parents as I got older. But I had no say in loving my children. The love for my children is beyond my control. It`s animal. It`s like hunger. It`s more than hunger - there have been times I could control my hunger [...]. I love my children like I need to breathe.

Penn Jillette

Teaching children about Hell is child abuse. Nothing but the unverifiable promise of permanent bliss or torture in the afterlife would make loving, decent, non-abusive parents inflict it on their children.

Greta Christina

When you look at the history of what we know about the world, you see a noticeable pattern. Natural explanations of things have been replacing supernatural explanations of them. Like a steamroller. Why the Sun rises and sets. Where thunder and lightning come from. Why people get sick. Why people look like their parents. How the complexity of life came into being. I could go on and on. All these things were once explained by religion. But as we understood the world better, and learned to observe it more carefully, the explanations based on religion were replaced by ones based on physical cause and effect. Consistently. Thoroughly. Like a steamroller.

Greta Christina

Love? Well, yes. There are so many kinds. There’s eros: simplest and most transient of all. There’s philia: friendship; loyalty. There’s storge: the affection a child gives its parents. There’s thelema: the desire to perform. Then there’s agape: platonic love; for a friend; for a world; love for a stranger you’ve never met; the love of all humanity.

Joanne Harris

Today I overheard an American teenager comparing her deprivation to that of our children, because her parents would only buy her a used car. There are none so impoverished as those who do not acknowledge the abundance of their lives.

Richard Paul Evans

You can`t change who your parents are. The only thing you can change is how you choose to deal with them.

Parents were the only ones obligated to love you; from the rest of the world you had to earn it.

Ann Brashares

Mother's Day is a celebration of all those, parents or not, who nourish or cherish others and teach them the meaning of love. It's just that mothers are the most evident, most visible, most endearing teachers and that's why we honor them, remember them and their concrete examples of love.

William J. Bausch

You don`t really understand human nature unless you know why a child on a merry-go-round will wave at his parents every time around and why his parents always wave back.

William D. Tammeus

Parents can only give good advice or put them on the right paths, but the final forming of a person`s character lies in their own hands.

Anne Frank

Mankind is not yet grown, I`m saying.
But he aspires, and thus he`s wild.
His parents - thought, and love undying -
may they watch over their lost child.
