And Adam and Eve blessed the name of God, and they made all things known unto their sons and their daughters.” – Moses 5:11-12
“The family must hold its preeminent place in our way of life because it is the only possible base upon which a society of responsible human beings has ever found it practicable to build for the future and maintain the values they cherish in the present.” – Ann M. Dibb
