„It means if you work hard, you should make a decent living. If you work hard, you should be able to support a family.“

—  Barack Obama, Context: It was Adam Smith, the father of free-market economics, who once said, “They who feed, clothe, and lodge the whole body of the people should have such a share of the produce of their own labor as to be themselves tolerably well fed, clothed, and lodged.” And for those of you who don’t speak old-English let me translate. It means if you work hard, you should make a decent living. If you work hard, you should be able to support a family.

„If you love what you do, you can balance and you can juggle (work and family). You have to set your priorities straight. You can't just work, work, work.“

Context: If you love what you do, you can balance and you can juggle (work and family). You have to set your priorities straight. You can't just work, work, work. Because then all of a sudden, you don't have a family... then why did you work so much when you're all by yourself in the end? So for me, I always wanted to have a family, for me that was the most important thing, and I found a man that wanted to have that with me.

H. Ettlinger, explains: “The last previous translation of the Eranistes into English was published in 1892, according to the translator’s preface, under the title Dialogues in the series called The Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers. That version was based on the Greek text in PG 83.27-336, which, like many of Migne’s texts, was drawn from a minimum number of original manuscripts and printed with more than a few errors. This book offers a translation of the critical edition of the Greek text found in Etllinger, Eranistes.” http://books.google.com/books?id=7lY7kAKzYR0C&pg=PA22&lpg=PA22&dq=%22like+many+of+Migne%E2%80%99s+texts,+was+drawn+from+a+minimum+number+of+original+manuscripts+and+printed+with+more+than+a+few+errors%22&source=bl&ots=s4e7TyYNIA&sig=cCw_Lr_1uD5T_iUGMAYVZkwT26A&hl=en&ei=ds4UTqDVLrSpsALn_N3UDw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1&ved=0CBUQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=%22like%20many%20of%20Migne%E2%80%99s%20texts%2C%20was%20drawn%20from%20a%20minimum%20number%20of%20original%20manuscripts%20and%20printed%20with%20more%20than%20a%20few%20errors%22&f=false Eranistes: Fathers of the Church, 2003, Gérard H.
