Wise sayings often fall on barren ground, but a kind word is never thrown away. Arthur Helps
No matter who you are, what you've accomplished, what your financial situation is - when you're dealing with a parent with Alzheimer's, you yourself feel helpless. The parent can't work, can't live alone, and is totally dependent, like a toddler. As the disease unfolds, you don't know what to expect. Maria Shriver
The cell phone has become the adult's transitional object, replacing the toddler's teddy bear for comfort and a sense of belonging. Margaret Heffernan
As a single parent, I had become tyrannical in order to survive, and anything I couldn't control caused me enormous anxiety. As a naturally untidy, disorganised man who never made lists or kept receipts, morphing into someone who could take care of a toddler on his own may have caused me to overcompensate a little. Simon Van Booy
One of my favorite little sayings is, 'To avoid criticism, say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.' Robert M. Gates
