[That form of] eloquence, the foster-child of licence, which fools call liberty.

Bruce Willis

Michele Bachmann
I am not only the person who wrote and sold a novel while raising a houseful of biological and foster children; I am also the person who wrote a horrific young adult novel that never sold and gave up on a foster child I couldn’t handle – an experience that still haunts me.

Thomas Harris
My riches are my family and my foster children. I try to store any material wealth in my hand, not my heart, so that I always feel free to give it away when the opportunity arises.
S. Truett Cathy
Military brats have this toughness: they’re almost like orphans or foster children; they develop little mechanisms. It sets you up to look at things a little differently.

Michelle Monaghan

Sophie Nelisse
You get to decide what to worship.
David Foster
Earth fills her lap with pleasures of her own;
Yearnings she hath in her own natural kind,
And, even with something of a mother’s mind,
And no unworthy aim,
The homely nurse doth all she can
To make her foster child, her inmate man,
Forget the glories he hath known
And that imperial palace whence he came.
William Wordsworth
Difficulty, my brethren, is the nurse of greatness – a harsh nurse, who roughly rocks her foster children into strength and athletic proportion.
William C. Bryant
Thou foster-child of Silence and slow Time.
John Keats
