Children Quotes

If we have violated any law, it was not done intentionally. We have injured no man's reputation, character, person, or property.We were meeting together to preserve ourselves, our wives, and our children from utter degradation and starvation.

George Loveless

I saw everything from starvation and neglect to where dogs were chained to trees and had arrows shot through them and even cats set on fire. During my investigations, more times than not children or women living in the home had also been abused.

Barbara Leff

Simplicity is a pleasant thing in children, or at any age, but it is not necessarily admirable, nor is affectation altogether a thing of evil. To be normal, to be at home in the world, with a prospect of power, usefulness, or success, the person must have that imaginative insight into other minds that underlies tact and savoir-faire, morality and beneficence. This insight involves sophistication, some understanding and sharing of the clandestine impulses of human nature. A simplicity that is merely the lack of this insight indicates a sort of defect.

Charles Horton Cooley

We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.

Hide Indian Saying

You must teach your children that the ground beneath their feet is the ashes of our grandfathers. So that they will respect the land, tell your children that the earth is rich with the lives of our kin. Teach your children what we have taught our childresn--that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth, befalls the sons of the earth. If men spit upon the ground, they spit upon themselves. This we know. The earth does not belong to man; man belongs to earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himselfĂ–

Chief Seattle

If you plan for a year, plant rice. If you plan for ten years, plant trees. If you plan for 100 years, educate your children.

Chinese Proverb

At first, when you hear of someone coming from Kentucky, and any time somebody rushes up to you and takes a picture of you or your children, I think everyone is leery.

Ann Kay

I like summer. I like warmer weather and long days. I'm one of those silly people who still enjoy lying in the sun - my children are horrified!

Danielle Steel

The conscience of children is formed by the influences that surround them; their notions of good and evil are the result of the moral atmosphere they breathe.

Jean Paul

I believe that the fight against crime starts in the home. Parents must take responsibility for their children and show them love and guidance from an early age so they learn to respect the rights of others.

Blanche Lincoln

Children require guidance and sympathy far more than instruction.

Anne Sullivan

There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience. Source?

Anatole Broyard

Ages of experience have taught humanity that the commitment of a husband and wife to love and to serve one another promotes the welfare of children and the stability of society

Jack Kingston

Orphans, dead parents, lonely children at Christmas, morose spoken word recordings, everything you love about the holidays. Move the turkey over so you can fit your head in the oven.

April Winchell

These cruel, wanton, indiscriminate bombings of London are, of course, a part of Hitlers invasion plans. He hopes, by killing large numbers of civilians, and women and children, that he will terrorise and cow the people of this mighty imperial city ... Little does he know the spirit of the British nation, or the tough fibre of the Londoners.

Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill
