Wisdom Quotes-Week 5

Week 5

I hope that you enjoy the Wisdom Quotes this week. I concentrated on quotes about family. Family is important to me! I love spending time with every one of our girls, grandchildren now, parents, siblings, and all extended family. One of my favorite relatives that I visited recently is my second cousin, Anita! When my husband and I traveled east, we got to visit her and her family again. She lives in her parents house, a home that I have fond memories of since I was a very young child.

Funny Quote

Families are like fudge- mostly sweet, with a few nuts.

Les Dawson

It takes all kinds of people to make a special family. Some of us don’t always have it together. We have to give each other room to grow and grace to overlook some of our little frustrations.

Inspiring Quote

What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family.

Mother Teresa

We can have a lot of peace with other people in the world when we truly love our family.

No Such Thing As Perfect

A dysfunctional family is any family with more than one person in it.

Mary Karr

No family can be completely perfect. We all have something about us that is not just right. This is because we are people and NO ONE is perfect. There is always going to be some bit of dysfunction!

You are born into your family and your family is born into you. No returns. No exchanges.

Elizabeth Berg

That is right! We have what we were given and have no choice to whom we were born and who is in our family. We only have to learn to love each other and learn to work with what we have and accept each other as we are.

What we are is broken! We can change that though! We can work to improve our lives through our faith in Christ. If you need more information on what it means to have a relationship with Christ, please ask.

Quote About Priorities

There is no doubt that it is around the family and the home that all the greatest virtues, the most dominating virtues of human are created, strengthened and maintained.

Winston S. Churchill

When all the dust is settled and all the crowds are gone, the things that matter are faith, family and friends.

Barbara Bush

Our priorities in life, after everything else is done and gone, is our faith first and foremost, then family and friends. All can make such a difference in our life.

More than a Building

Everyone needs a house to live in, but a supportive family is what builds a home.

Anthony Liccione

A man travels around the world over in search of what he needs, and returns home to find it

George A.Moore

A house is a building, but a home is more than that. It is where we come for love, support, and peace. We can go everywhere trying to find love, support and peace and won’t find it until we come home or create a home if we don’t have that already.

Family is a life jacket in the stormy sea of life


We need to have protection from our family when we face many tough times in life. It is important to know that we can come home to protection, love, peace, and support.

Love Gives, Not Selfish

The greatest moments in life are not concerned with selfish achievements but rather with the things we do for the people we love and esteem

Walt Disney

Think about what we can do for those we love, not what we gain for our self.

  1. My favorite quote: “Luke, you’re going to find that many of the Truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view.” It reminds me that MY truth is derived from my own life experiences, which means other people have been lead to different Truths. Sharing insightful Truths is truly the path to enlightenment. Unless you’re talking to a Trumper…then it’s a path to alcoholism. πŸ™‚

  2. my favourite one was ” A dysfunctional family is any family with more than one person in it.”
    Mary Karr – this is because I’ve often described my own upbringing as dysfunctional and this makes me think of the advice to take the plank ouut of my own eye before trying to remove the speck from my brother’s eye.
