Raising children is an uncertain thing; success is reached only after a life of battle and worry.
There is much more to being a patriot and a citizen than reciting the pledge or raising a flag.
Women somehow get portrayed as one type. You're either a feminist or you're not. You're a working woman or you're not. I'm raising two girls, and I say to them, 'I need you to be strong and soft. You can be smart and beautiful... You can be all of these things.'
Motherhood has completely changed me. It's just about like the most completely humbling experience that I've ever had. I think that it puts you in your place because it really forces you to address the issues that you claim to believe in and if you can't stand up to those principles when you're raising a child, forget it.
Training a puppy is like raising a child. Every single interaction is a training opportunity.

Raising children is an incredibly hard and risky business in which no cumulative wisdom is gained: each generation repeats the mistakes the previous one made.
There are blessings in being close to the soil, in raising your own food even if it is only a garden in your yard and a fruit tree or two. Those families will be fortunate who, in the last days, have an adequate supply of food because of their foresight and ability to produce their own.
Ezra Taft Benson
God put us here to prepare this place for the next generation. That's our job. Raising children and helping the community, that's preparing for the next generation.
I want to thank my parents for somehow raising me to have confidence that is disproportionate with my looks and abilities.
I had a world of people raising me; it was like a little village.
Even as we enumerate their shortcomings, the rigor of raising children ourselves makes clear to us our mothers' incredible strength. We fear both. If they are not strong, who will protect us? If they are not imperfect, how can we equal them?
Raising children is an enormously important part of life. I think one of the most important, or the most important, period.

John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
