15 Famous Quotes Reimagined for Parents

A good quote is like a light switch. In our darkest moments, inspired words can illuminate consciousness, kindle imagination, and console our spirit. (Feel free to quote me on that.)

As someone who can use all the enlightenment they can get, I often find myself reimagining quotes from folks braver and smarter than I am to get me through the toughest moments in parenting. For example, when the going gets tough, do the tough get going? Or do the tough call their mamas and cry a little? I think they call their mamas. I mean, I know I do.

So let’s take a moment and reimagine the sayings we know so well in the name and glory of parenthood:
