Harris Perhaps host and guest is really the happiest relation for father and son. --Evelyn Waugh Could I climb to the highest place in Athens, I would lift my voice and proclaim, "Fellow citizens, why do you turn and scrape every stone to gather wealth and take so little care of your children to whom one day you must relinquish it all." --Socrates There are three degrees of filial piety. The highest is being a credit to our parents, the second is not disgracing them; the lowest is being able simply to support them. --Confucius The family is one of nature's masterpieces. --George Santayana We never know the love of our parents for us till we have become parents. --Henry Ward Beecher Love is an act of endless forgiveness, a tender look which becomes a habit. --Peter Ustinov The giving of gifts in such a way that no credit will devolve upon ourselves is sufficiently at odds with our routine behavior as to be accounted a mystery, and we may as well give that mystery a name. Santa Claus it is. -- Cecil Adams, syndicated columnist of the "The Straight Dope", answering the question "Is there a Santa Claus?" 26-Dec-97 (http://www.straightdope.com/)
