Top Parents Taught Me Quotes

Parents Taught Me Quotes By John Waters

Once I had a shrink who said, "Your parents are the fuel you run on," because I was raised in the tyranny of good taste. If my parents hadn't taught me all that, I couldn't have made fun of it. So I thank them, and they were loving. It takes a long time to realize that they made me feel safe when I lived a life which was very not safe. — John Waters

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Dick Van Dyke

As wonderful as they were, my parents didn't teach me anything about self-discipline, concentration, patience, or focus. If I hadn't had a family myself, I probably never would've done anything. Marriage taught me responsibility. — Dick Van Dyke

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Walter Dean Myers

From my foster parents, the Deans, I received the love that was ultimately to strengthen me, even when I had forgotten its source. It was my foster mother, a half-Indian, half-German woman, who taught me to read, though she herself was barely literate. I remember her reading to me every day from 'True Romance' magazine. — Walter Dean Myers

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Jean Guitton

When I read the documents relative to the Modernism, as it was defined by Saint Pius X, and when I compare them to the documents of the II Vatican Council, I cannot help being bewildered. For what was condemned as heresy in 1906 was proclaimed as what is and should be from now on the doctrine and method of the Church. In other words, the modernists of 1906 were, somewhat, precursors to me. My masters were part of them. My parents taught me Modernism. How could Saint Pius X reject those that now seem to be my precursors? — Jean Guitton

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Samuel Alito

I think that what my parents taught me about hard work, optimism and education still holds true. — Samuel Alito

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Constance Jablonski

I have a huge breakfast every morning because I never know if I'll have time for lunch, especially during Fashion Week. It keeps my mood positive all day. And my parents taught me to have tons of fruit and vegetables, which I think helps my skin. — Constance Jablonski

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Allen West

I am a black male who grew up in the inner city of Atlanta and no one ever followed me in a mall. I don't recall any doors clicking when I crossed the street.

Whatever I do in life, my parents always taught me to focus on that, and they never let me quit. — Cassie Scerbo

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Sharad Vivek Sagar

I'd always heard people say and I'm sure you heard it too, "Change takes time." But, my parents taught me the more important lesson, very silently but with even greater clarity, "Change takes time. But, it also takes people." People who are willing to put in their everything. Change doesn't happen by itself. — Sharad Vivek Sagar

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Dick Cavett

All three of my parents - I also had a stepmother - were teachers, and my dad taught high school, and as he always reminded me when I was going to spend some money on something, 'Your mother and I, in the Depression, had to decide whether to spend a dime on a loaf of bread or if we could go to a movie with it.' — Dick Cavett

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Jonathan Safran Foer

When I was nine, I had a babysitter who didn't want to hurt anything. She put it just like that when I asked her why she wasn't having chicken with my older brother and me: "I don't want to hurt anything." [ ... ] What our babysitter said made sense to me, not only because it seemed true, but because it was the extension to food of everything my parents had taught me. We don't hurt family members. We don't hurt friends or strangers. We don't even hurt upholstered furniture. My not having thought to include animals in that list didn't make them the exceptions to it. It just made me a child, ignorant of the world's workings. Until I wasn't. At which point I had to change my life. — Jonathan Safran Foer

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Nicole Richie

Be kind to everybody, be grateful, say thank you everyday. My parents taught me well. — Nicole Richie

I come from the kind of family where work is work; my parents always taught me that it's better to be doing something than sitting around doing nothing. — Tom Hooper

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Eliza Dushku

I think I really thought I was a boy until I was ten years old because my parents divorced when I was born, and so my three brothers were almost like my fathers growing up. So they taught me how to ride a bike and all that stuff. I really was just kind of a guy's girl and just kind of an outspoken - some could say obnoxious - in-your-face kid. — Eliza Dushku

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Taylor Swift

My parents taught me never to judge others based on whom they love, what color their skin is, or their religion. — Taylor Swift

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Betty Cuthbert

My parents always encouraged me and I had a good home life. We were always taught to respect things and other people. It's so different today, because children are just not taught the right way. — Betty Cuthbert

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Rosamund Pike

I remember times of anxiety, ups and downs, and times of unexpected windfalls. But my parents loved what they did. And because their work was also their hobby, it taught me that work could be fulfilling. — Rosamund Pike

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Sophia Amoruso

What all of these jobs taught me is that you have to be willing to tolerate some shit you don't like - at least for a while. This is what my parents' generation would call "character building," but I prefer to call it "#GIRLBOSS training." I didn't expect to love any of these jobs, but I learned a lot because I worked hard and grew to love things about them. — Sophia Amoruso

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Miranda Kerr

My parents both worked - my mom was an accountant, and my dad is a builder - and that taught me about having a really strong work ethic, and I respected them a lot for that. — Miranda Kerr

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Robert McCammon

But my parents had taught me that everybody deserved respect, no matter if they were pansies or not, and to tell the truth, I was nothing to write home about in the physical looks department. — Robert McCammon

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Russell Westbrook

My childhood, I wouldn't say it was bad. It helped me grow up. I stayed out of trouble. My parents taught me what's wrong and right, and knowing that I had a little brother following me, I had to make sure I was doing the right thing so he knows what's right, too. I was in the house nine days out of 10. There wasn't nothing good outside for me. — Russell Westbrook

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Marita Golden

To my father, who told me the stories that matter. To my mother, who taught me to remember them. — Marita Golden

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Adam Sandler

When I was kid, yeah, my family, my parents wanted me to marry a Jewish girl because that was what they taught their children, and thought it would be an easier life for me to raise a Jewish kid. And I have a Jewish wife, I have a Jewish kid. They seem pretty happy about it. — Adam Sandler

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Brian Blessed

My parents taught me honesty, truth, compassion, kindness and how to care for people. Also, they encouraged me to take risks, to boldly go. They taught me that the greatest danger in life is not taking the adventure. — Brian Blessed

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Jason Fuchs

I convinced my parents to let me see an agent, but because I had been taught never to speak to strangers, I was so quiet during the interview, they said to bring me back when I was older. — Jason Fuchs

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Katherine Paterson

In the Book of Genesis, Abraham believes that God is commanding him to sacrifice his beloved son as proof of his love and obedience. But just as Abraham is about to thrust the knife into his terrified child, an angel grasps his hand and there in the thicket is a sheep that God has provided for the sacrifice. Most people find this story horrifying, but what my father taught me that day was this: No matter how sacred the calling appears, it is not God's will for parents to sacrifice their children. — Katherine Paterson

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Joan Jett

My parents taught me I could be anything in the world I wanted to be. — Joan Jett

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Bobby Hull

The Christmas just before I turned four, my parents bought me a pair of little black skates and the Bay of Quinte was frozen and my two sisters took me out there and held my hands and taught me to skate. Now I don't know if this is true-although it sounds good!-but rumour has it by the end of the day they couldn't keep up with me. — Bobby Hull

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Eudora Welty

I live in gratitude to my parents for initiating me
and as early as I begged for it, without keeping me waiting
into knowledge of the word, into reading and spelling, by way of the alphabet. They taught it to me at home in time for me to begin to read before starting school.
My love for the alphabet, which endures, grew out of reciting it but, before that, out of seeing the letters on the page. In my own story books, before I could read them for myself I fell in love with various winding, enchanted-looking initials drawn by Walter Crane at the head of fairy tales. In "Once upon a time," an "o" had a rabbit running it as a treadmill, his feet upon flowers. When the day came years later for me to see the Book of Kells, all the wizardry of letter, initial, and word swept over me a thousand times, and the illumination, the gold, seemed a part of the world's beauty and holiness that had been there from the start. — Eudora Welty

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Tahar Ben Jelloun

Did my father talk to me? It's true, he didn't say a lot to me, but I knew what had to be done. No need for big speeches. He taught me the fundamentals of our religion: My son, Islam is simple: you are alone responsible for yourself before God, so if you are good, you will find goodness in the afterlife, and if you are bad, you'll find that instead. There's no mystery: everything depends on how you treat people, especially the weak, the poor, so Islam, that means you pray, you address the Creator and don't do evil around you, don't lie, don't steal, don't betray your wife or your country, don't kill- but do I really need to remind you of this? — Tahar Ben Jelloun

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Saul Rubinek

My parents taught me the way to deal with being picked on was to be compassionate. I had to defend myself physically, but I had to be compassionate and understand the position of those abusing me. I had to figure it out and then rise above it. — Saul Rubinek

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Blake Griffin

They really just taught me at an early age the values of hard work. Both my parents are two of the hardest working people that I know, so that was a big foundation for me and something I really cherish and it really helped me to grow up in that kind of household. — Blake Griffin

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Condoleezza Rice

I studied piano from the age of three. My grandmother taught piano. I stayed at her house during the day while my parents worked. I obviously wanted to learn to play. And so she asked if she could teach me, and my mother said don't you think she's too young. My grandmother apparently said no. So I could read music before I could read, and I really don't remember learning to read music. So for me it's like a native language. When I look at a sheet of music, it just makes sense. — Condoleezza Rice

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Amit Gupta

Little idea about my teacher:
1. First and foremost My Parents (Both are equal).
2. Next to all my respected teachers who taught me subjective as well practical knowledge, and help me to shape up as a responsible person.
3. Next to all my seniors and elder people who guided me in the path of progress time to time throughout my journey.
4. Next to all my beloved family and friends who are always stood along with me, no matter the time what it was?
5. Next to those entire know-unknown persons who has passed through journey and taught few lessons, tips.
6. Next is the nature, just see it, feel it & learn it.
7. Last but not least kids/children's- a lot of things, no worry, smiles, happiness, this is the best part of this journey.
So it's time to Salute the Real Commanders of our Life
Original from: Amit Gupta — Amit Gupta

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Ted Scheu

I'm pretty sure my parents are
pretending they are sick.
I know because I taught them both
to do that little trick.
You blow your nose and hold your head
and claim your brain is breaking.
And so, a pro like me would know
my folks are clearly faking.
A little thing I learned in school
convinced me I am right.
My parents are supposed to meet
my principal tonight. — Ted Scheu

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Laurie Halse Anderson

I am Outcast."
"The kids behind me laugh so loud I know they're laughing about me. I can't help myself. I turn around. It's Rachel, surrounded by a bunch of kids wearing clothes that most definitely did not come from the EastSide Mall. Rachel Bruin, my ex-best friend. She stares at something above my left ear. Words climb up my throat. This was the girl who suffered through Brownies with me, who taught me how to swim, who understood about my parents, who didn't make fun of my bedroom. If there is anyone in the entire galaxy I am dying to tell what really happened, it's Rachel. My throat burns."
"Her eyes meet mine for a second. "I hate you," she mouths silently. — Laurie Halse Anderson

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Sophia Amoruso

My parents taught me the value of money and working hard. And I kind of got that in me intuitively. — Sophia Amoruso

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Pete Goss

My parents taught me that I could do anything I wanted and I have always believed it to be true. Add a clear idea of what inspires you, dedicate your energies to its pursuit and there is no knowing what you can achieve, particularly if others are inspired by your dream and offer their help. — Pete Goss

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Usain Bolt

I was always brought up to believe in Him [God], and to behave in certain ways. That is what my parents taught me and I always trust my parents. They have great values. — Usain Bolt

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Merrick Garland

As my parents taught me, by both words and deeds, a life of public services is as much a gift to the person who serves as it is to those he's serving. — Merrick Garland

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Venus Williams

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Amber Le Bon

Your parents are always a big influence on you. They help you make you who you are. The main thing my parents taught me is just to be a nice person - to be generous, kind and happy. I hope it comes off when I work and meet people. — Amber Le Bon

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Bryce Dallas Howard

My parents taught me many of the things that people need in life to feel confident: practical things, such as managing finances, mucking out the goat barn, cleaning a house, doing repairs, mending a broken roof or a toilet. — Bryce Dallas Howard

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Katie Stevens

I think that they way my parents raised me, they taught me to always follow my dreams and never give up, no matter what the obstacle. — Katie Stevens

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Mike Myers

My parents taught me to do whatever makes you happy - follow your bliss. That's why I don't make a lot of movies. I'm very meat and potatoes when it comes to work, putting in eight hours each day. I only do what I love. — Mike Myers

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Lance Gross

My parents always taught me never to take anything for granted because it can be taken away from you like that, especially when it comes to looks. I could get into a car crash tomorrow and disfigure my face. So I have to stay grounded. — Lance Gross

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Kiana Tom

I have my parents to thank for that, they raised me to be active and play all sports. They taught me the importance of staying healthy, being focused and setting goals in whatever I do. — Kiana Tom

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Paula Stokes

I remember the big gaping hole left by my dad's absence in the months following the accident. He'd been the one who went to my parent-teacher conferences, the one who taught me mnemonics to memorize the Great Lakes and the Earth's atmospheres. Whenever I did something silly, my dad always made me feel better by telling me a story from the firehouse about someone who had done something even sillier. Sometimes you don't realize all the things a person does for you until they aren't there to do them anymore. — Paula Stokes

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Rosecrans Baldwin

Tintin comics evoke Bermuda, where my parents doled out comics for good behavior and my grandmother taught me how to shuffle cards. — Rosecrans Baldwin

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Mike Huckabee

My working poor parents told me that I could do better. They taught me that I was as good as anybody else. And it never occurred to them to tell me that I could just rest comfortably and wait for good old Uncle Sugar to feed me, lead me and then bleed me. — Mike Huckabee

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Nia Vardalos

I'd been raised by my parents who taught me not to think you're better than you are. — Nia Vardalos

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Amanda Borden

My parents never forced things on my brother and me: not our faith, not our sports, not our friends. Yet they taught us about surrounding ourselves with the right people: the kind of people we want to be. — Amanda Borden

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Wilma Mankiller

One of the things my parents taught me, and I'll always be grateful as a gift, is to not ever let anybody else define me; that for me to define myself ... and I think that helped me a lot in assuming a leadership position. — Wilma Mankiller

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Kristen Stewart

To me 'they lived happily ever after' means to be happy with yourself! My parents always taught me that being happy has to work without Prince Charming. My life is completed without a prince but it's nice of course to have someone who loves you and fights for you. — Kristen Stewart

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Atom Egoyan

My parents taught me to believe that through the creative act, we're able to transcend and give a response to desecration. — Atom Egoyan

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Elizabeth Payson Prentiss

People ask me how it happens that my children are all so promptly obedient and so happy. As if it chanced that some parents have such children or chanced that some have not! I am afraid it is only too true, as someone has remarked, that "this is the age of obedient parents!" What then will be the future of their children? How can they yield to God who have never been taught to yield to human authority? And how well fitted will they be to rule their own households who have never learned to rule themselves? — Elizabeth Payson Prentiss

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Bethany Hamilton

I'm a surfer at heart. Both my parents moved to Hawaii in the 1970s, where they met and became Christians. Then they taught me and my two brothers how to love the Lord - and how to surf! — Bethany Hamilton

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Mitch Albom

He tells my parents how I took every class he taught. He tells them, "You have a special boy here." Embarrassed, I look at my feet. Before we leave, I hand my professor a present, a tan briefcase with his initials on the front. I bought this the day before at a shopping mall. I didn't want to forget him. Maybe I didn't want him to forget me.
"Mitch, you are one of the good ones," he says, admiring the briefcase. Then he hugs me. I feel his thin arms around my back. I am taller than he is, and when he holds me, I feel awkward, older, as if I were the parent and he were the child.
He asks if I will stay in touch, and without hesitation I say, "Of course." When he steps back, I see that he is crying. — Mitch Albom

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Carine Roitfeld

I think it's good that [my granddaughter] here because I lost my parents and now it's great that there's a new generation. And she's taught me new things that I've forgotten. Like, when you're on holiday and see what it's like to see a shell or go into the water for the first time. — Carine Roitfeld

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Alice Walker

My parents taught me service - not by saying, but by doing. That was my culture, the culture of my family. — Alice Walker

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Alyson Noel

Everything just feels so empty without her. She was more a parent to me than my birth parents were. She took me in, fed, dressed me, but most importantly, she treated me with respect. She taught me that my abilities were nothing to be ashamed of, nothing I should try so hard to deny. She convinced me that what I had was a gift-not a curse- and that I shouldn't let other people's narrow minds and fears determine how I love, what I do, or how I perceive myself in the world. She actually made me believe that in no way, shape, or form did their uninformed opinions make me a freak. — Alyson Noel

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Caroline Wozniacki

My parents just always taught me to be reasonable. — Caroline Wozniacki

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Marie Helvin

I was brought up by parents who embraced the 1960s and taught me that being faithful isn't the be-all and end-all. — Marie Helvin

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Samantha Young

The greatest lesson you taught me is that parents' actions and choices resonates into their child's life, sometimes affecting them in a way it never should. — Samantha Young

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Banana Yoshimoto

These women lived their lives happily. They had been taught, probably by loving parents, not to exceed the boundaries of their happiness regardless of what they were doing. But therefore they could never know real joy. Which is better? Who can say? Everyone lives the way she knows best. What I mean by 'their happiness' is living a life untouched as much as possible by the knowledge that we are really, all of us, alone. That's not a bad thing. Dressed in their aprons, their smiling faces like flowers, leaning to cook, absorbed in their little troubles and perplexities, they fall in love and marry. I think that's great. I wouldn't mind that kind of life. Me, when I'm utterly exhausted by it all, my skin breaks out, on those lonely evenings when I call my friends again and again and nobody's home, then I despise my own life - my birth, my upbringing, everything. I feel only regret for the whole thing. — Banana Yoshimoto

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Jesse Kellerman

The most important lesson my parents taught me is that writing is a job, one that requires discipline and commitment. Most of the time it's a fun job, a wonderful job, but sometimes it isn't, and those are the days that test you. — Jesse Kellerman

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Ruth Simmons

I was intent on doing something productive and on being everything my parents taught me to be. Their values were clear: do good work; don't ever get too big for your breeches; always be an authentic person; don't worry too much about being famous and rich because that doesn't amount to too much. — Ruth Simmons

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Alessandro Del Piero

Luckily, thanks to the way my parents taught me, I think I can handle the fame in the right manner. — Alessandro Del Piero

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Ray Lewis

Parents may be always working, parents may be in and out. When you're dropping them off with coaches, the first thing kids should be coming back and saying is, 'Mom, guess what I learned today? Guess what coach taught me today?' — Ray Lewis

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Randy Rhoads

Both of my parents are music teachers. My mother owns the school that I taught in. My brothers and sisters are musicans. My mom pushed me all the time. She knew that I could do it. She knew more than I did. She thought I would go somewhere. She gave me the job and helped me get equipment, which a lot of parents don't do. Alot of my students had to go out and fight for it. — Randy Rhoads

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Anne Lamott

My parents, and librarians along the way, taught me about the space between words; about the margins, where so many juicy moments of life and spirit and friendship could be found. In a library, you could find miracles and truth and you might find something that would make you laugh so hard that you get shushed, in the friendliest way. — Anne Lamott

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Justin Bieber

I was taught very well. My mom raised me very well, and so did my dad. I've been very blessed to have great parents that cared about me. — Justin Bieber

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Roseanne Barr

I have great parents, and they both taught me great things, but my formative years were boundaryless. — Roseanne Barr

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Dries Van Noten

When we were studying at the Royal Antwerp Academy, we were taught to seek inspiration from everyone, everything and everywhere. My parents and grandparents were also a great inspiration for me a very young age. — Dries Van Noten

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Benigno Aquino III

I remove a lot of the pressure from myself by saying I'm not competing with my parents. They are the persons who taught me my ideology. They actively practiced what they preached. They're the exemplars and the role models. So how does one compete with a mentor? — Benigno Aquino III

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Elizabeth Gilbert

My lowest self says: "That person is acting like a total jerk!"
My slightly higher self says: "That person is acting like a total jerk right now only because he's going through a really hard time in life, and his parents never taught him how to behave better, and he might have some sort of mild mental illness, and also he has a drinking problem ... so I should try to be more compassionate and generous toward sad, tragic, miserable people like that."
My even higher self says: "We are all just flawed and frightened human beings in an uncertain world, struggling to survive."
Then finally my VERY highest self says: "Lord, please help me stop acting like a total jerk."
... and that's when it finally stops being about the other person at all. — Elizabeth Gilbert

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Emayatzy Corinealdi

Not long ago someone said I should shorten it to just Emma. But I really, really love my name. From as far as I can remember, my parents have taught me to be really proud of my name. — Emayatzy Corinealdi

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Gretchen Carlson

Our faith is what inspires us to reach out and volunteer to help others. As a child my parents taught me the biblical charge, "To whom much is given, much is expected," and faith guides me that way. And I believe, especially in this day and age, it's vital that we provide our children with a foundation from which to build their lives - one that gives them a sense of purpose. — Gretchen Carlson

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Beyonce Knowles

My parents taught my sister and me the importance of giving back and making a difference in another person's life. — Beyonce Knowles

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Ellar Coltrane

I didn't have my parents to rebel against, but I had society, and that definitely is what they taught me. Just: Trust nothing. — Ellar Coltrane

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Joseph B. Wirthlin

My parents taught me to react quickly when temptation comes and to say 'No!' instantly and emphatically. I recommend that same counsel to you. Avoid temptations. — Joseph B. Wirthlin

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Andrew Young

I like my life. I've had a good life. I think the reason is my parents taught me that life is a burden. But if you take it one day at a time, it's an easy burden. — Andrew Young

Parents Taught Me Quotes By John Michael Higgins

My parents were not at all backstage parents. We had none of that in the family. It was just very clear right away that I was an actor, even from 4 years old. I've never waited a table. I taught some - I'll teach classes in improv or Shakespeare, but there's some motor in me that needs to do that. — John Michael Higgins

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Kanye West

My parents taught me that AIDS was a man-made disease designed to get rid of the undesirable people. — Kanye West

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Shenae Grimes

For me, I grew up in a house doing charity work for homeless people, and my parents had a lot of homeless friends. We were always taught to not discriminate and not judge. — Shenae Grimes

Parents Taught Me Quotes By Monica Raymund

One thing my parents always taught me was to maximize my options. — Monica Raymund
