Parenting thoughts

I am not here, of course, as one pretending to any expertness on questions of youth and children – except in the sense that, within their own families, all grandfathers are experts on these matters.
- Dwight D. Eisenhower, US President

Fatherhood is pretending the present you love most is soap-on-a-rope.
- Bill Cosby

He who teaches children learns more than they do.
- German proverb

Having a child is like getting a tattoo… on your face. You better be committed.
- Eat Pray Love (screenplay)
