Good Quote for February 2, 2014

“We need not to be let alone. We need to be really bothered once in a while. How long is it since you were really bothered? About something important, about something real?” 

― Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

I’m most often bothered about something to do with my parenting. That’s why I like this quote. It makes me feel like maybe that’s good — like if I stop being bothered by my parenting, then I’ve stopped growing as a parent.

It also gives me the Bradbury stamp of approval to bother my kids about things. And that’s something every parent should be happy to hear!
