10 famous quotes on family life from Brainy Quotes

“Women are, in my view, natural peacemakers. As givers and nurturers of life, through their focus on human relationships and their engagement with the demanding work of raising children and protecting family life, they develop a deep sense of empathy that cuts through to underlying human realities.” – Daisaku Ikeda

“The effects of unresolved trauma can be devastating. It can affect our habits and outlook on life, leading to addictions and poor decision-making. It can take a toll on our family life and interpersonal relationships. It can trigger real physical pain, symptoms, and disease. And it can lead to a range of self-destructive behaviors.” – Peter A. Levine

“In dwelling, live close to the ground. In thinking, keep to the simple. In conflict, be fair and generous. In governing, don’t try to control. In work, do what you enjoy. In family life, be completely present.” – Lao Tzu

“Clearly older women and especially older women who have led an active life or elder women who successfully maneuver through their own family life have so much to teach us about sharing, patience, and wisdom.” – Alice Walker

“The great danger for family life, in the midst of any society whose idols are pleasure, comfort and independence, lies in the fact that people close their hearts and become selfish.” – Pope John Paul II

“Feminism insists on women’s right to make choices – about whether to marry, whether to have children, whether to combine work and family or to focus on one over the other. It also urges men and women to share the joys and burdens of family life and calls on society to place a higher priority on supporting caregiving work.” – Stephanie Coontz

“I did not have a happy family life a few years ago. I was divorced, and I was very alienated from my daughter, and I was out there cutting every ribbon and running around New York hosting events for different causes to supplant my loss because I didn’t have a family to go home to. Now I don’t want to be Mr. Show Business anymore.” – Alec Baldwin

“I went to an ordinary school in New York City with no other actors. I learned to compartmentalise different parts of my life. I was one person at home and then another person at work and for that reason my career didn’t challenge my family life.” – Brooke Shields

“A family spirit is not always synonymous with family life. Bone of our bone and flesh of our flesh makes for brothers, sisters and relatives, who may be as distant as strangers in a foreign land.” – Mother Angelica

“I still think it’s essential for a parent to cook with their children. Weighing out the ingredients and learning where the food comes from is educational, but it also helps to place meal times at the heart of family life. We never had dinner in front of the TV.” – Mary Berry

These are great quotes that illustrate a variety of views, thoughts, experience, and of course… lots of wisdom from famous people about family life.

  1. All these quotes are beautiful. Family is the single most important influence in a child’s life. From their first moments of life, children depend on their parents and family to protect them and provide for their needs.

  2. These are all interesting quotes. Each gives different views on family life. I would say that it starts with each individual. People decide who they’re going to be and how they’ll run their families. Agreed, some have had traumatic pasts that may influence their actions and lifestyles— yet, it is up to each individual to decide if they’ll continue to let the past get the best of them or if they’ll be better people.

  3. The quote about feminism is very important, as a lot of people, even in this day and age, still struggle with mine and my partner’s decision to not have children. Luckily, my best friend and her partner aren’t having children either so they understand, but we get shrugged off but most other people with “oh, you’ll change your mind” or “but you should!”, and they just don’t understand that it’s MY decision.
