Freud taught us that it wasn't God that imposed judgment on us and made us feel guilty when we stepped out of line.

Tags: Florida, Moved  ✍ Author: Sylvia Earle

Parents and schools should place great emphasis on the idea that it is all right to be different.

Tags: Children, Forgive  ✍ Author: Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach

Tags: House, Majority  ✍ Author: Christopher Eccleston

You didn't have a choice about the parents you inherited, but you do have a choice about the kind of parent you will be.

Tags: Choice, Parent  ✍ Author: Marian Wright Edelman

You can't do things unexpected in life if you're not willing to take a risk, and it's easier to risk your own life than it is for your parent to watch you take risks. It's very, very hard for parents to see children doing things that aren't a solid path. I've been through that.

Tags: Children, Life  ✍ Author: Lisa Edelstein

You can do and use the skills that you have. The schools need you. The teachers need you. Students and parents need you.

Tags: Compassion, Time  ✍ Author: Dave Eggers

Tags: Creative, Give  ✍ Author: Atom Egoyan

Tags: Family, Year  ✍ Author: Jennifer Ehle

When I was a little kid, my parents would show me Marx Brothers' films and westerns and stuff like that. That's where all my desire to be an actor comes from and probably most of my understanding of acting comes from for sure.

Tags: Acting, Show  ✍ Author: Alden Ehrenreich

I was very much an only child who was raised by the television and movies, and I grew up in New York. We weren't, like, rich people, but we were middle-class people and my parents supported this love I had for entertainment.

Tags: Love, Movies  ✍ Author: Billy Eichner

Tags: Beautiful, Children  ✍ Author: Britt Ekland

Tags: Business, God  ✍ Author: Idris Elba

Tags: Dad, Trust  ✍ Author: Shannon Elizabeth

I used to work, part time, in a deli, in those days when your parents made you work just so you should know what work was like. And you'd make 4, 5, 6, ten dollars.

Tags: End, Silence  ✍ Author: Edie Falco

I have a weird vision of relationships because my parents have known each other since second grade, and they got married right out of college.

My parents never talked to me like I was a kid. Maybe that's why I've been seen as mature.

Tags: Seen, Why  ✍ Author: Dakota Fanning

Tags: Causes, Involved  ✍ Author: Paul Farmer

Tags: Age, Career  ✍ Author: Corey Feldman

I grew up in a Christian home with amazing parents.

Tags: Amazing, Home  ✍ Author: Allyson Felix

My father kept me busy from dawn to dusk when I was a kid. When I wasn't pitching hay, hauling corn or running a tractor, I was heaving a baseball into his mitt behind the barn... If all the parents in the country followed his rule, juvenile delinquency would be cut in half in a year's time.

Tags: Father, Time  ✍ Author: Allyson Felix

My parents came from different backgrounds. My father's was grander than my mother's, so my mother had... to put up with the disapproval of my father's relations.

Tags: Father, Mother  ✍ Author: Julian Fellowes

I have met a couple of six-year-olds who were apparently quite excited to meet me - before they actually met me. And when they actually met me they ran behind their parents' legs and cowered for shelter.
