Sample Quotes on Family & Consumer Science:

COOKING

While cooking demands your entire attention, it also rewards you with endlessly sensual pleasures... The seductive softness of chocolate beginning to melt from solid to liquid. The tug of sauce against the spoon when it thickens in the pan, and the lovely lightness of Parmesan drifting from the grater in gossamer flakes. Time slows down in the kitchen, offering up an entire universe of small satisfactions.

—Ruth Reichl

FOODS/NUTRITION

Preserve and treat food as you would your body, remembering that in time food will be your body.

—B. W. Richardson

SEWING/NEEDLEWORK

The best thing about doing needlepoint for very small children is that they are so uncritical. The don’t say things like, ‘I see you’ve missed some stitches over here on the leg, was that intentional?’ or ‘Was this creature blinded in a fight?’ They will clasp it in their little arms and love it besottedly, inseparably as the thing becomes more and more rancid.

—Carole Berman and Jennifer Lazarus

She watched and taught the girls that sang at their embroidery frames while the great silk flowers grew from their needles.

—Louise Jordan Miln

I have often said that I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity — all I hope for in my clothes.

—Yves Saint Laurent

INTERIOR DESIGN

If you love something, it will work. That’s the only real rule.

—Bunny Williams

HOUSEWORK

So many people imagine housekeeping to be boring, frustrating, repetitive, unintelligent drudgery. I cannot agree. In fact, having kept house, practiced law, taught, and done many other sorts of work, low and high-paid, I can assure you that it is actually lawyers who are most familiar with the experience of unintelligent drudgery.

—Cheryl Mendelson

It’s more pressure on women—if they marry or partner with someone—to partner with the right person. Because you cannot have a full career and a full life at home with your children if you are also doing all of the housework and child care.

—Sheryl Sandberg

The secret of surviving housework is simply to do it. Pull the plug on the part of your brain that always wants to negotiate everything. You need to change a diaper, rinse a bottle, clean a spill, fluff a pillow? Consider it done. It’s a no-brainer. End of conversation. End of story.

—Jeanne Ray

CONSUMERISM

He who buys what he does not need steals from himself.

—Swedish Proverb

SHOPPING/BUDGETING

You contribute much to your marriage by the wise, thrifty, diligent management and oversight of your part of the household budget.

—Elizabeth George

If you live for having it all, what you have is never enough.

—Vicki Robin

HOSPITALITY

People will forget what you said, forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

—Maya Angelou

CHILD CARE/PARENTING

It’s not our job to toughen our children up to face a cruel and heartless world. It’s our job to raise children who will make the world a little less cruel and heartless.

—L. R. Knost

Deciding to have a child is to decide forever to have your heart walking around outside your body.

--Elizabeth Stone
