The MMOB Daily Quote - Benjamin Spock

Today, the MMOB Daily Quote focuses on notable American pediatrician and psychoanalist Dr. Benjamin Spock.

While you've likely heard something about him, or mistaken him for the
Leonard Nimoy character Mr. Spock on Star Trek, you probably don't know that he was a gold medalist in rowing at the 1924 Paris Olympic Games.

“Happiness is mostly a by-product of doing what makes us feel fulfilled”

“You know more than you think you do.”

“What good mothers and fathers instinctively feel like doing for their babies is usually best after all.”

“There are only two things a child will share willingly: communicable diseases and his mother's age”

“In automobile terms, the child supplies the power but the parents have to do the steering.”

“All the time a person is a child he is both a child and learning to be a parent. After he becomes a parent he becomes predominantly a parent reliving childhood.”

Cheers! - Jason
