"What children take from us, they give..."

What children take from us, they give…We become people who feel more deeply, question more deeply, hurt more deeply, and love more deeply.

Sonia Taitz

That’s sort of a cliché about parents. We all believe that our children are the most beautiful children in the world. But the thing is, what no one really talks about is the fact that we all really believe it.

The world is full of women blindsided by the unceasing demands of motherhood, still flabbergasted by how a job can be terrific and torturous.

Anna Quindlen

The central struggle of parenthood is to let our hopes for our children outweigh our fears.

  1. I wrote the quote "what children take from us, they give..." Thanks so much for bringing me to life in your blog. The quote is from MOTHERING HEIGHTS, which Oprah liked and cited from.

    I've got a new book out on October 11, 2011. It's a novel called IN THE KING'S ARMS -- a romantic exploration of love between cultures. How much do we owe our parents, or our children, in picking a mate?

    All best.
