Parenting is the hardest job I've ever had. I've said more than once, it's easier to take care of someone with a rupturing aortic aneurism than to handle a toddler throwing temper tantrum.

Now the challenge is to be a parent to adult, married children, and learning to be a good mother-in-law.

Also active on EL&U.

For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.

― T.S. Eliot

Language is the most massive and inclusive art we know, a mountainous and anonymous work of unconscious generations.

What fetters the mind and benumbs the spirit is ever the dogged acceptance of absolutes.

― Edward Sapir, Language: an Introduction to the Study of Speech
