Behold the man who shields his family from all suffering. Has not his body become a willing vessel for affliction? Without good men to hold it up, the family house will fall when misfortune descends.
Tirukkural 103: 1029-1030
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 the garden.
In the Kingdom of Heaven, true love is fulfilled centred on parental love...The family is the original base of true love...
Sun Myung Moon
Your family is your first frame of reference...You should avail of every kind of lesson that you receive from your family.
