Favorite Familial Quotes

1. "Mais les traditions familiales n'ont souvent pas de fondement plus solide , et les ethnologues me font bien rire qui cherchent la raison de tant de rites mystérieux . Le vrai mystère dans beaucoup de cas , c'est qu'il n'y a pas de raison du tout ."
Author: Albert Camus
2. "- Le moyen le plus efficace de défendre une opinion est de tuer ceux qui ne la partagent pas.- C'est quoi ça ? Un extrait du guide du parfait dictateur ?- Non, un vieil adage familial."
Author: Cassandra O'Donnell
3. "It is not so incomprehensible as you pretend, sweet pea. Love is the feeling we have for those we care deeply about and hold in high regard. It can be light as the hug we give a friend or heavy as the sacrifices we make for our children. It can be romantic, platonic, familial, fleeting, everlasting, conditional, unconditional, imbued with sorrow, stoked by sex, sullied by abuse, amplified by kindness, twisted by betrayal, deepened by time, darkened by difficulty, leavened by generosity, nourished by humor and "loaded with promises and commitments" that we may or may not want or keep.The best thing you can possibly do with your life is to tackle the motherfucking shit out of it."
Author: Cheryl Strayed
4. "He was already looking at their relationship through the lens of the past tense. It puzzled her, the ability of romantic love to mutate, how quickly a loved one could become a stranger. Where did the love go? Perhaps real love was familial, somehow, linked to blood, since love for children did not die as romantic love did."
Author: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
5. "While much psychology emphasizes the familial causes of angst in humans, the cultural component carries as much weight, for culture is the family of the family. If the family of the family has various sicknesses, then all families within that culture will have to struggle with the same malaises. There is a saying cultura cura, culture cures. If the culture is a healer, the families learn how to heal; they will struggle less, be more reparative, far less wounding, far more graceful and loving. In a culture where the predator rules, all new life needing to be born, all old life needing to be gone, is unable to move and the soul-lives of its citizenry are frozen with both fear and spiritual famine."
Author: Clarissa Pinkola Estés
6. "But the truth was that I didn't want to stay in Riley. The pulls of familial love and obligation could not, for the moment, compete with the promise of early-relationship sex. Starlight and beer and our twisting, naked bodies--that was what I wanted, not a seat at a dining room table with two old women eating breaded veal cutlets and Vienna torte."
Author: Curtis Sittenfeld
7. "Moreover, grandmothers of students who aren't doing so well in class are at even higher risk - students who are failing are fifty times more likely to lose a grandmother compared with non-failing students. In a paper exploring this sad connection, Adam speculates that the phenomenon is due to intrafamilial dynamics, which is to say, students' grandmothers care so much about their grandchildren that they worry themselves to death over the outcome of exams."
Author: Dan Ariely
8. "Without cultural indoctrination, all of us would be atheists. Or, more specifically, while many may dream up their own gods as did our ancestors, they would certainly not be ‘Christian' or ‘Jewish' or ‘Muslim' or any other established religion. That's because, without the texts and churches and familial instruction, there are no independent evidences that any specific religion is true. Outside of the Bible, how would one hear of Jesus? The same goes for every established religion."
Author: David G. McAfee
9. "When people are kids their parents teach them all sorts of stuff, some of it true and useful, some of it absurd hogwash (example of former: don't crap your pants; example of latter: Columbus discovered America). This is why puberty happens. The purpose of puberty is to shoot an innocent and gullible child full of nasty glandular secretions that manifest in the mind as confusion, in the innards as horniness, upon the skin as pimples, and on the tongue as cocksure venomous disbelief in every piece of information, true or false, gleaned from one's parents since infancy. The net result is a few years of familial hell culminating in the child's exodus from the parental nest, sooner or later followed by a peace treaty and the emergence of the postpubescent as an autonomous, free-thinking human being who knows that Columbus only trespassed on an island inhabited by our lost and distant Indian relatives, but who also knows not to crap his pants."
Author: David James Duncan
10. "… En ook', ging hij verder: ‘ik had er behoefte aan om nog eens alleen te zijn met mezelf. Buiten dit tehuis ligt een wereld waarin je niets anders moet doen dan praten. Praten, praten, praten en nog eens praten. En luisteren of op z'n minst toch doen alsof, naar mensen die praten, praten, praten. En die kriskras door elkaar heen praten, praten, praten. Je hebt familiale en andere verplichtingen, wat vaak weer neerkomt op praten en luisteren, en ik had er gewoon geen zin meer in, in die hele sociale pantomime. Ik wou eindelijk stilte voor mezelf en alleen zijn met mijn gedachten. Hier kan ik dat min of meer. Het is de enige plaats waar wordt geaccepteerd dat ik volledig in mezelf ben gekeerd. Het was mijn laatste kans."
Author: Dimitri Verhulst
11. "If I – as a beneficiary of that exact formula – will concede that my own life was indeed enriched by that precise familial structure, will the social conservatives please (for once!) concede that this arrangement has always put a disproportionately cumbersome burden on women? Such a system demands that mothers become selfless to the point of near invisibility in order to construct these exemplary encironments for their families. And might those same social conservatives – instead of just praising mothers as "sacred" and "noble" – be willing to someday join a larger conversation about how we might work together as a society to construct a world where healthy children can be raised and healthy families can prosper without women have to scrape bare the walls of their own souls to do so?"
Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
12. "It's the most familial-based societies where the sense of obligation is strongest, that breed the worst nepotism and cronyism."
Author: Franklin Foer
13. "Blay found himself envying the couple a little. Not about the familial estrangement, for sure. But God ... to be able to be seen with your mate in public, show your love for them, have your relationship respected by everyone else? Heterosexual couples took that for granted because they never knew anything different. Their unions were sanctioned by the glymera, even if the pairs were not in love, or were cheating on each other or were otherwise a fraud.Two males?Hah."
Author: J.R. Ward
14. "For a moment, there was silnece, and then at Brooke's nod, the rest of the Squad, minus me, chimed in. "Yes, sir."I said nothing. For one thing, I wasn't exactly keen on speaking in unison, and for another, I wasn't about to make any promises I couldn't keep. "Toby."I jumped in my seat. The Voice actually knew my name. And somehow, he had the freaky ability to ascertain that of all of us, I was the one who hadn't responded. "Do you understand?"I contemplated telling him what I didn't understand was his familial relationshiops, but stayed momentarily silent, causing everyone within a three-foot radius to kick me under the table at once."Ow!" I cleared my throat. "I mean, yes." I didn't throw the sir on the end, but apparently, that was good enough for the Voice. "Excellent. Report in tonight, and we'll have more information for you all tomorrow. And girl?""Yes?""Congratulations on the homecoming nominations. We're all very proud."
Author: Jennifer Lynn Barnes
15. "« Toute communauté, qu'elle soit familiale ou autre, nous est haissable, dégradante. Nous sommes ensemble dans une honte de principe d'avoir à vivre la vie. C'est là que nous sommes au plus profond de notre histoire commune, celle d'être tous les trois des enfants de cette personne de bonne foi, notre mère, que la société a assassinée. Nous sommes du côté de cette société qui a réduit ma mère au désespoir. À cause de ce qu'on a fait à notre mère si aimable, si confiante, nous haïssons la vie, nous nous haïssons."
Author: Marguerite Duras
16. "Familial love can find an echo in our own hearts just as it did in that of Charles Dickens."
Author: Peter Ackroyd
17. "I was forever changed by my experience on 'Once and Again.' All of us who were on that show have deep connections... familial connections."
Author: Susanna Thompson
18. "Going to dancing school, or being in a play, is a very familial feeling. You're around friends."
Author: Teri Garr
19. "It is a peculiar monthly Affliction inducing them [the men of Regency England] to take on various unnatural shapes—neither quite demon, nor proper beast—and in those shapes to roam the land; to hunt, murder, dismember, gorge on blood, consume haggis and kidney pie, gamble away their familial fortune, marry below their station (and below their statue, when the lady is an Amazon), vote Whig, perform sudden and voluntary manual labor, cultivate orchids, collect butterflies and Limoges snuff boxes, and perpetrate other such odious evil—unless properly contained."
Author: Vera Nazarian
20. "Before I can say I am, I was. Heraclitus and I, prophets of flux, know that the flux is composed of parts that imitate and repeat each other. Am or was, I am cumulative, too. I am everything I ever was, whatever you and Leah may think. I am much of what my parents and especially my grandparents were -- inherited stature, coloring, brains, bones (that part unfortunate), plus transmitted prejudices, culture, scruples, likings, moralities, and moral errors that I defend as if they were personal and not familial."
Author: Wallace Stegner
21. "En somme, la fonction politique de la famille est double :1. Elle se reproduit elle-même en mutilant sexuellement les individus. En se perpétuant, la famille patriarcale perpétue la répression sexuelle et tout ce qui en dérive : troubles sexuels, névroses, démences et crimes sexuels.2. Elle rend l'individu apeuré par la vie et craintif devant l'autorité, et renouvelle donc sans cesse la possibilité de soumettre des populations entières à la férule d'une poignée de dirigeants.C'est pourquoi la famille revêt pour le conservateur cette signification privilégiée de rempart de l'ordre social auquel il croit. On s'explique aussi pourquoi la sexologie conservatrice défend si opiniâtrement l'institution familiale. C'est qu'elle "garantit la stabilité de l'Etat et de la Société", au sens conservateur, réactionnaire, de ces notions. La valeur attribuée à la famille devient donc la clé de l'appréciation générale de chaque type d'ordre social. (p. 141)"

Outra vez te revejo - Lisboa e Tejo e tudo -,Transeunte inútil de ti e de mim,Estrangeiro aqui como em toda a parte,Casual na vida como na alma,Fantasma a errar em salas de recordações,Ao ruído dos ratos e das tábuas que rangemNo castelo maldito de ter que viver..."
