got my kids brainwashed: You don't use Google, and you don't
use an iPod.
Ballmer # Fun,
- For families
living in extreme poverty, who struggle each day and whose
children are placed in care for economic and social reasons,
this could be considered a joke. We could certainly have a
better quality of life by, for example, spending a night at
Manuel Barroso # Family,
- The strength
of our nation depends on the strength of our schools, especially
those in large urban districts that serve so many of our children.
Broad Prize finalist districts are doing what some say is
impossible -- improving students' performance, regardless
of their race or family income -- while at the same time closing
persistent achievement gaps. Other urban districts nationwide
can learn a great deal from what is working in Broad Prize
Broad # Nation,
I am proud of a number of accomplishments, there are real
costs to being unreasonable. Long hours. Too little time with
family. A near incapacity for, as they say, stopping and smelling
Broad # Pride,
- To enjoy
good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring
peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's
own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way
to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally
come to him.
Buddha # Health,
- A family
is a place where minds come in contact with one another. If
these minds love one another the home will be as beautiful
as a flower garden. But if these minds get out of harmony
with one another it is like a storm that plays havoc with
Buddha # Harmony,
history must be constantly renewed by telling parents, relatives,
and friends everything one does. On the other hand, for the
warrior who has no personal history, no explanations are needed;
nobody is angry or disillusioned with his acts. And above
all, no one pins him down with their thoughts and their expectations.
Castaneda # History,
you are in the family... you have more rights than when you
are asking to join and knocking on the door.
Chirac # Family
- Let us
all take more responsibility, not only for ourselves and our
families but for our communities and our country.
Clinton # Responsibility,
- Our lives
are a mixture of different roles. Most of us are doing the
best we can to find whatever the right balance is . . . For
me, that balance is family, work, and service.
Clinton # Family,
- I think
like any marriage, especially when you've had divorced parents
like myself; you want to try even harder to make it work.
Diana # Family
- The important
thing is the family. If you can keep the family together
and thats the backbone of our whole business, catering
to families thats what we hope to do.
Disney # Family,

Gates # Happy,
children made us look differently at all these things that
we take for granted, like taking your child to get a vaccine
against measles or polio.
Gates # Family,
- I want
to live as private a life as I can because of our children.
Gates # Private,
- We set
out what's going to be our work time versus our foundation
time versus family time, and we'll reassess that... sometimes
Gates # Work,
- The correct
attitude of the security analyst toward the stock market might
well be that of a man toward his wife. He shouldn't pay too
much attention to what the lady says, but he can't afford
to ignore it entirely. That is pretty much the position that
most of us find ourselves vis-à-vis the stock market.
Graham # Attitude,
not enough to make time for your children. There are certain
stages in their lives when you have to give them the time
when they want it. You can't run your family like a company.
It doesn't work.
Grove # Family,
- I didn't
want to repeat my parents' life. I saw in their lives a routine
and a lack of dreaming, a lack of the possibilities, a lack
of passion. And I didn't want to live without passion.
Hefner # Family,
- The only
rock I know that stays steady, the only institution I know
that works, is the family.

taught me from my youngest childhood memories through these
connections with Aboriginal and tribal people that you must
always protect people's sacred status, regardless of the pest.
Irwin # Family,
I'll be heading out to count koalas in the wild. Then I'm
off to work on an expansion project in the zoo. I may be wheeling
concrete or doing interview. It's never the same, but Steve,
Bindi and I are almost always together and I think that's
one of the most important things as we're doing these adventures.
Irwin # Work,
- We will
not adopt the fantastic hypocrisy of modern conservatism which
preaches the values of families and communities, while conducting
a direct assault on them through reduced wages and conditions
and job security.
Keating # Conservative,
They're not easy. But there has to be some penalty for sex.
Maher # Children,
- And even
if you have failed at all else in the eyes of the world, if
you have a loving family, you are a success.
Mandino # Family,
- You don't
have to love your clients like they're your own children,
but it helps. After all, you are going to have to be like
a mother to them. Pick them up when they fall down, let them
cry on your shoulder, hold the tissue when they blow their
Markson # Love,
now I am focused on today. While my children do not have the
same gifts as I do, they are talented in many other ways.
It is so amazing to see the work God has done in all of our
Meyer # Focus,
- By far
the best dressing up outfit I ever had was a wonderful pair
of clown dungarees, which my Granny made.
Middleton # Fashion,
I would have loved to have met her and she's obviously she's
an inspirational woman to look up to. Obviously on this day
and you know going forward and things, you know it is a wonderful
family, the members who I've met have achieved a lot and you
know very inspirational and so, yes, I do. (Talking about
Middleton # Family,
- I think
I know I've been working very hard for the family business,
and sometimes those days are long days and you know I think
if I know I'm working hard and I'm pulling my weight both
work and playing hard at the same time, you know I think everyone
who I work with can see I am there pulling my weight and that's
really what matters to me.
Middleton # Hard
again I think, if you
the people around home are very
supportive to us and you know those are the people who really
matter to us, our close friends and family and I think if
sort of they feel you are doing the right thing you can only
be sort of true to yourself and you sort of have to ignore
a lot of what's said, obviously take it on board, but you
know you have to be yourself really and that's how I have
stuck by it really.
Middleton # Enjoyment,
stay married because they want to, not because the doors are
Newman # Society,
- As the
world grows smaller, you might think it would be easier for
human beings to recognize how similar we are; to understand
that we're all basically seeking the same things; that we
all hope for the chance to live out our lives with some measure
of happiness and fulfillment for ourselves and our families.

restaurant can make an easy, healthy choice.
Obama # Family,

Sunday dinner Monday through Saturday.

They're the causes I carry with me every single day.
Obama # Family,
- As a
mom, I know it is my responsibility, and no one else's, to
raise my kids. But we have to ask ourselves, what does it
mean when so many parents are finding their best efforts undermined
by an avalanche of advertisements aimed at our kids.
Obama # Family,
if we give parents all the information they need and we improve
school meals and build brand new supermarkets on every corner,
none of that matters if when families step into a restaurant,
they can't make a healthy choice.
Obama # Information,
the enormous variety of human experience and beliefs, we are
all fundamentally interested in the pursuit of a better quality
of life for ourselves, our children, and our families.

as I do."
