Raising children uses every bit of your being - your heart, your time, your patience, your foresight, your intuition to protect them, and you have to use all of this while trying to figure out how to discipline them.
Nicole Ari Parker

A mind all logic is like a knife all blade. It makes the hand bleed that uses it.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
