Elia S. Parsons
“Motherhood brings as much joy as ever, but it still brings boredom, exhaustion and sorrow too. Nothing else ever will make you as happy or as sad, as proud or as tired, for nothing is quite as hard as helping a person develop his own individuality — especially while you struggle to keep your own.”
“Time and effort have made the most extraordinary things in the world — like canyons and temples and concertos — but the most remarkable of all creations must be: new people.”
“It takes hard work and hard thinking to rear good people. The job is interesting, although the hours are bad, starting from the first day.”
“Imagination gives wings to the intellect.”
Elia S. Parsons, U.S. writer
(1938 - 2012)
