30 days, Day 5

Favorite quote(s).

On motherhood,
"Raising children is part joy, part guerilla warfare." -Ed Asner

On life,
"She went around with the attitude that she would rather be beaten to death than take any shit." -Stieg Larsson about heroine Lisbeth Salander

On Anna,
"A wife who loses a husband is called a widow. A husband who loses a wife is called a widower. A child who loses his parents is called a orphan. Yet there is no word for a parent who loses a child. That's how awful the loss is." Author Unknown (at least to me)

On marriage,
"No man is truly married until he understands every word his wife is NOT saying." - Anonymous
