bekishore : father   60

In my own words | Graham Bell
What for you, is the best thing about being a father and grandfather?
Having a son, a daughter and a grandson to love to bits and be immensely proud of. Remember they’re the ones who decide what home to put you in.

Straight A student commits suicide over O-level results, mum takes her own life months later | The New Paper
"In January, just three hours after getting her results slip, her granddaughter jumped to her death. Except for two Bs - in English and Mathematics - the student had scored distinctions for her other subject.
The only child left a note for her parents: "Mum, I am sorry for being a disappointment. I should have done better.
The child's parents used to fight over their daughter's education. The girl had been a straight-As student who attended a top school.
The mum wanted to push her to excel and her dad felt that the child should be left alone."

Before I go | Stanford Medicine
That message is simple: When you come to one of the many moments in life when you must give an account of yourself, provide a ledger of what you have been, and done, and meant to the world, do not, I pray, discount that you filled a dying man’s days with a sated joy, a joy unknown to me in all my prior years, a joy that does not hunger for more and more, but rests, satisfied. In this time, right now, that is an enormous thing.

Letters from a Self-Made Merchant to His Son
There are times when it’s safest to be lonesome. Use a little common-sense, caution and conscience. You can stock a store with those three commodities, when you get enough of them. But you’ve got to begin getting them young. They ain’t catching after you toughen up a bit.
