Favorite Sitter Quotes

51. "It was not easy for my mother, being a struggling actress and raising a child. We were these two sort of vagabonds, never knowing where the money was going to come from. She always says she couldn't afford a babysitter, which is why she put me on the stage."
Author: Christina Applegate
52. "The best baby-sitters, of course, are the baby's grandparents. You feel completely comfortable entrusting your baby to them for long periods, which is why most grandparents flee to Florida."
Author: Dave Barry
53. "Vi blir født alene og dør alene. Det er bare å venne seg til det først som sist. Alenheten er grunnleggende i hele konstruksjonen. Den er så å si selve bærebjelken. Man kan leve sammen med andre, men sammen betyr som regel ved siden av. Og det er fint nok. Man lever side om side med andre og i heldige glimt lever man kanskje til og med sammen med dem. Man sitter i samme bil, spiser samme middag, feirer samme jul. Men det er noe annet å kjøre bil sammen, spise middag sammen eller feire jul sammen. Det er ytterligheter, To planeter."
Author: Erlend Loe
54. "It is a fundamental truth that the responsibilities of motherhood cannot be successfully delegated. No, not to day-care centers, not to schools, not to nurseries, not to babysitters. We become enamored with men's theories such as the idea of preschool training outside the home for young children. Not only does this put added pressure on the budget, but it places young children in an environment away from mother's influence. Too often the pressure for popularity, on children and teens, places an economic burden on the income of the father, so mother feels she must go to work to satisfy her children's needs. That decision can be most shortsighted. It is mother's influence during the crucial formative years that forms a child's basic character. Home is the place where a child learns faith, feels love, and thereby learns from mother's loving example to choose righteousness. How vital are mother's influence and teaching in the home—and how apparent when neglected!"
Author: Ezra Taft Benson
55. "My concern is that you will face some delays and disappointments at this formative time in your life and feel that no one else in the history of mankind has ever had your problems or faced those difficulties. And when some of those challenges come, you will have the temptation common to us all to say, "This task is too hard. The burden is too heavy. The path is too long." And so you decide to quit, simply to give up. Now to terminate certain kinds of tasks is not only acceptable but often very wise. If you are, for example, a flagpole sitter then I say, "Come on down." But in life's most crucial and telling tasks, my plea is to stick with it, to persevere, to hang in and hang on, and to reap your reward."
Author: Jeffrey R. Holland
56. "TV is the best babysitter."
Author: John Goodman
57. "KARENO (sitter ved skrivebordet. Han er 50 år, skjeggløs, med nesten hvitt hår, iført slitte, grå klær): Min filosofis fremtid, sier De? Det kommer jo an på om den har noen fremtid. BONDESEN (56 år, tykk, med neseklemme, litt lapset kledd, i en stol): De har dog allerede fått Deres parti. KARENO: Jeg er formann i en forening, det er alt. Folk tror den dag idag at filosofi er tenkning; jeg har ment at filosofi var livet teoretisk uttrykt ved tenkning."
Author: Knut Hamsun
58. "I would wish my portraits to be of the people, not like them. Not having a look of the sitter, being them."
Author: Lucian Freud
59. "Women may give lip service to wanting husbands who take on an equal role in raising children, but many will pull rank when an important decision, like how to discipline or what baby sitter to hire, has to be made."
Author: Pepper Schwartz
60. "Forgive me,' the woman says. 'I think I've interrupted you in a private moment.''Well,' I reply, instead of yelling something to the effect of :'No kidding lady, I'm in the bathroom!''Were you praying?' she asks.'Sort of.''That's what I thought,' the woman says with a nod, 'which is why I spoke up. I like the idea of answering prayers,' she says. 'Plus, I figure I'm so old, I could have been God's babysitter."
