Nancy Mitford


The family - that dear octopus from whose tentacles we never quite escape, nor, in our inmost hearts, ever quite wish to.

Family is just accident.... They don't mean to get on your nerves.  They don't even mean to be your family, they just are.

Marsha Norman


Friends are God's apology for relations.

Hugh Kingsmill


Family faces are magic mirrors.  Looking at people who belong to us, we see the past, present, and future.

Gail Lumet Buckley

Having children makes you no more a parent than having a piano makes you a pianist.
