But sometimes, in spite of all the wisdom that we may have accumulated by the time we become parents, we need a professional poet (or America’s dad, Tom Hanks) to articulate our most inspired thoughts. By passing down inspirational quotes we love, we also have an opportunity to share a moment with our kids that’s out of the mundane, to step outside of the day-to-day and be inspired together.
