Many will view the compromises that will be made during your negotiations as painful concessions. But why not view them as peace offerings, ones that will provide in return the priceless gifts of hope, security and freedom for our children and our children's?~Abdullah II of Jordan


Children Hope Freedom

Let us sacrifice our today so that our children can have a better tomorrow.~A. P. J. Abdul Kalam


Inspirational Children

I still feel that in India we look upon sports as a recreational activity - which it is - but people have to understand that there is a career in sports. It's not just necessary to be a doctor or a lawyer or an engineer, as most of us Indians appear to think that our children should grow up to be.~Abhishek Bachchan


Children Sports People

Is 'The Wind in the Willows' a children's book? Is 'Alice in Wonderland?' Is 'Treasure Island?' These are masterpieces which we read with pleasure as children, but with how much more pleasure when we are grown-up.~A. A. Milne


Children Book Wind

I gave up writing children's books. I wanted to escape from them as I had once wanted to escape from 'Punch': as I have always wanted to escape. In vain.~A. A. Milne


Children Writing Escape

A test of a people is how it behaves toward the old. It is easy to love children. Even tyrants and dictators make a point of being fond of children. But the affection and care for the old, the incurable, the helpless are the true gold mines of a culture.~Abraham Joshua Heschel


Love Children Culture

Marriage is a school itself. Also, having children. Becoming a father changed my whole life. It taught me as if by revelation.~Abraham Maslow


Life Marriage Children

I'm actually the fourth generation in my family to have no practical use for the church, or God, or religion. My children continue this trend.~Adam Savage


Family Children God

Sure, I'd love to have children some day. But world domination comes first.~Aimee Mullins

I love my job and I love my children. It's really about figuring out your schedules and getting everything down that you need to do and sticking to your plan.~Adriana Lima


Love Children Job

From racial profiling and being pulled over just for 'driving while black' to this new phenomenon of killing unarmed people out of some preconceived idea of fear, our lives and our children's lives are not being valued.~Al Sharpton


Children Fear People

I have often been struck by the fact that most parents who are experiencing positive and rewarding relationships with their pre-adolescent children are, nevertheless, waiting apprehensively and bracing themselves for the stormy adolescent period.~Albert Bandura


Positive Children Parents

I would have liked having children to some degree, but frankly I haven't got the time to take the kids to the goddamn ballgame.~Albert Ellis


Time Children Degree

My children are the only thing in my life that makes me happy.~Alec Baldwin


Life Children Happy

How is it that little children are so intelligent and men so stupid? It must be education that does it.~Alexandre Dumas


Education Children Men

We have to bring children into a new relationship to food that connects them to culture and agriculture.~Alice Waters


Children Relationship Food

I think America's food culture is embedded in fast-food culture. And the real question that we have is: How are we going to teach slow-food values in a fast-food world? Of course, it's very, very difficult to do, especially when children have grown up eating fast food and the values that go with that.~Alice Waters


Children Food Culture

I consider the fact that thousands of children die each day from starvation and a lack of medicine a crisis for humanity and a problem we must collectively attempt to solve.~Alice Walker


Children Day Humanity

Create a garden; bring children to farms for field trips. I think it's important that parents and teachers get together to do one or two things they can accomplish well - a teaching garden, connecting with farms nearby, weave food into the curriculum.~Alice Waters


Children Food Parents

Just as we teach our children how to ride a bike, we need to teach them how to navigate social media and make the right moves that will help them. The physical world is similar to the virtual world in many cases. It's about being aware. We can prevent many debacles if we're educated.~Amy Jo Martin


Children Social Media Bike

I never 'shunned' L.A., like people say. And I do think you can raise children well there, but it's definitely harder.~Andie MacDowell


Children People You

My children without a doubt are my greatest accomplishment. If I did nothing else I would feel just having and raising them would be enough. The rest is icing.~Andie MacDowell


Children Accomplishment

I appeal to you, my friends, as mothers: are you willing to enslave your children? You stare back with horror and indignation at such questions. But why, if slavery is not wrong to those upon whom it is imposed?~Angelina Grimke


Mothers Children Friends

I trust the time is coming, when the occupation of an instructor to children will be deemed the most honorable of human employment.~Angelina Grimke


Time Children Trust

Once you have six children, you're committed.~Angelina Jolie


Children You Once

Sometimes when I'm watching television and something, an image, will come on that has to do with 9/11 or some of these families telling their stories, or children talking about drawing pictures of airplanes flying into towers, you know, I find myself still choking up.~Ann Richards


Children Myself Flying

We can't understand when we're pregnant, or when our siblings are expecting, how profound it is to have a shared history with a younger generation: blood, genes, humor. It means we were actually here, on Earth, for a time - like the Egyptians with their pyramids, only with children.~Anne Lamott


Time Children History

It's a great mistake, I think, to put children off with falsehoods and nonsense, when their growing powers of observation and discrimination excite in them a desire to know about things.~Anne Sullivan


Children Parenting Great

Children require guidance and sympathy far more than instruction.~Anne Sullivan


Children Sympathy Guidance

Whenever an earthquake or tsunami takes thousands of innocent lives, a shocked world talks of little else. I'll never forget the wrenching days I spent in Haiti last year for Save the Children just weeks after the earthquake.~Anne M. Mulcahy


Children World Forget

If we could muster the same determination and sense of responsibility that saves a country like Japan - or a company like Xerox - then investing to save women and children who are dying in the developing world would be very good business.~Anne M. Mulcahy


Children Women Business

Something as simple as better breastfeeding could save a million children a year.~Anne M. Mulcahy


Children Simple Better

You want to give me chocolate and flowers? That would be great. I love them both. I just don't want them out of guilt, and I don't want them if you're not going to give them to all the people who helped mother our children.~Anne Lamott


Mother Love Children

We must not inflict life on children who will be resented; we must not inflict unwanted children on society.~Anne Lamott


Life Children Society

It used to be the one or the other, right? You were the 'bad girl' or the 'good girl' or the 'bad mother' or 'the good mother,' 'the horrible businesswoman who eschewed her children' or 'the earth mother who was happy to be at home baking pies,' all of that stuff that we sort of knew was a lie.~Annette Bening


Mother Children Home

I woke in bits, like all children, piecemeal over the years. I discovered myself and the world, and forgot them, and discovered them again.~Annie Dillard


Children Myself World

I knew I wanted children in my life. The acting was always in relation to it. Life at home is chaos. They're wonderful. They're such interesting human beings. I just love it. I'm lucky.~Annette Bening


Life Love Children

Anybody who has children and children who are well feels a sense of responsibility towards parents and kids and families that are struggling and that aren't well.~Annette Bening


Children Parents Sense

When you go to Africa, and you see children, they're usually barefoot, dirty and in rags, and they'd love to go to school.~Annie Lennox


Love Children School

Having children, they're not your property. They need to figure out their own views. I think my daughters have a pretty healthy self-awareness, but I can't speak on their behalf.~Annie Lennox


Children Having Children

I have a reputation for being cold and aloof, but I'm so not that woman. I'm passionate. I love my girls, being with my girlfriends, getting involved with issues that affect other women and children who are suffering.~Annie Lennox


Love Children Women

I have frequently gained my first real insight into the character of parents by studying their children.~Arthur Conan Doyle


Children Parents Character

You know, nothing is more important than education, because nowhere are our stakes higher; our future depends on the quality of education of our children today.~Arnold Schwarzenegger


Education Children Future

The amassing of unfettered wealth of individuals and corporations should stop. The inheritance of rich people's wealth by their children should stop. The expropriators should have their wealth expropriated and redistributed.~Arundhati Roy


Children People Wealth

Love, it has been said, flows downward. The love of parents for their children has always been far more powerful than that of children for their parents; and who among the sons of men ever loved God with a thousandth part of the love which God has manifested to us?~Augustus Hare


Love Children Parents

A mother should give her children a superabundance of enthusiasm; that after they have lost all they are sure to lose on mixing with the world, enough may still remain to prompt fated support them through great actions.~Augustus Hare


Mother Children Great

A girl child who is even a little bit educated is more conscious of family planning, health care and, in turn, her children's own education.~Azim Premji


Family Education Children

I am not sure how much good is done by moralising about fairy tales. This can be unsubtle - telling children that virtue will be rewarded, when in fact it is mostly simply the fact of being the central character that ensures a favourable outcome. Fairy tales are not, on the whole, parables.~A. S. Byatt


Children Good Character

A surprising number of people - including many students of literature - will tell you they haven't really lived in a book since they were children. Sadly, being taught literature often destroys the life of the books.~A. S. Byatt


Life Children Book

To the Parisians, and especially to the children, all Americans are now 'heros du cinema.' This is particularly disconcerting to sensitive war correspondents, if any, aware, as they are, that these innocent thanks belong to those American combat troops who won the beachhead and then made the breakthrough. There are few such men in Paris.~A. J. Liebling


Children War Men

We don't need mandatory, non-sectarian prayers read over the loudspeaker to 'put God back in schools.' God never left the schools. God is still at work through the hundreds of thousands of gifted teachers and administrators, committed parents, and passionate volunteers who seek to help give our children 'a future with hope.'~Adam Hamilton


Work Children Future

Many Christians do not believe God sends tornadoes. But they do believe that God walks with His children through the storms, that He sends His people to help after the storms, and that with and through God, there is always hope.~Adam Hamilton


Children Hope God

When my kids were growing up, I wanted their teachers to teach them science, reading, math and history. I also wanted them to care about my kids. But I did not want my children's public school teachers teaching them religion. That was my job as a parent and the job of our church, Sunday school, and youth group.~Adam Hamilton


Children History School

Students read for tests and because their parents ask them to, but I think it's very important to tell children that you can read for fun, too, and to understand human spirit. It builds empathy.~Adora Svitak


Children Parents Fun

Hoping to instill my love of learning in other children, I taught my first class at a local elementary school the year my first book, 'Flying Fingers,' debuted; since then, I have spoken at hundreds of schools, classrooms and conferences around the world.~Adora Svitak


Love Children Learning

It's my personality to be more quiet and reserved. I'm not going out every night to multiple things. I prefer to stay in and be with my children and do Spanish homework to make sure they get a good grade the next day.~Aerin Lauder


Children Good Day

The worker can unionize, go out on strike; mothers are divided from each other in homes, tied to their children by compassionate bonds; our wildcat strikes have most often taken the form of physical or mental breakdown.~Adrienne Rich


Mothers Children Go

For me, now, working and children is it. There's nothing more to life.~Aidan Gillen


Life Children Me

For someone to say that marriage is only about procreation is a joke. I didn't marry my husband to have children. I married my husband because I love my husband.~Aisha Tyler


Love Marriage Children

Were we closer to the ground as children, or is the grass emptier now?~Alan Bennett


Children Grass Now

Children always assume the sexual lives of their parents come to a grinding halt at their conception.~Alan Bennett


Children Parents Always

We were put to Dickens as children but it never quite took. That unremitting humanity soon had me cheesed off.~Alan Bennett


Children Humanity Me

I believe employment regulations for women, whereby the prospective employer is not able to inquire about the interviewee's status regarding children, childcare, or indeed their intention of becoming a parent, are counterproductive.~Alan Sugar


Children Women Parent

I've seen mothers and children really being vulnerable in the refugee camps; it's supposed to be temporary, but they end up having children who have grown up in refugee camps.~Alek Wek


Mothers Children End

I feel, in 2015, when we see human beings and children dying to cross the ocean, trying to find safety, something more must be done to help them because refugees are just like me and you.~Alek Wek


Children Ocean Safety

We need to do everything we can to protect the health and welfare of children around the world, but fortunately, it's getting easier to provide things like medication and care.~Alek Wek


Children Health World

Those children who are beaten will in turn give beatings, those who are intimidated will be intimidating, those who are humiliated will impose humiliation, and those whose souls are murdered will murder.~Alice Miller


Children Turn Will

The reason why parents mistreat their children has less to do with character and temperament than with the fact that they were mistreated themselves and were not permitted to defend themselves.~Alice Miller


Children Parents Character

When I first got out of school, I went on a children's theater tour, and I went around the country a little bit that fall, and it was the first time I went to Chicago. We spend a couple of days in Chicago, and I was really struck viscerally by the city.~Allison Tolman


Time Children School

What happens when children reach puberty earlier and adulthood later? The answer is: a good deal of teenage weirdness.~Alison Gopnik


Children Good Reach

Like most parents, I think, my children have been the source of some of my most intense joys and despairs, my deepest moral dilemmas and greatest moral achievements.~Alison Gopnik


Children Parents Greatest

Young children seem to be learning who to share this toy with and figure out how it works, while adolescents seem to be exploring some very deep and profound questions: 'How should this society work? How should relationships among people work?' The exploration is: 'Who am I, what am I doing?'~Alison Gopnik


Work Children Learning

Asking questions is what brains were born to do, at least when we were young children. For young children, quite literally, seeking explanations is as deeply rooted a drive as seeking food or water.~Alison Gopnik


Children Food Water

The youngest children have a great capacity for empathy and altruism. There's a recent study that shows even 14-month-olds will climb across a bunch of cushions and go across a room to give you a pen if you drop one.~Alison Gopnik


Children Great Empathy

Babies and young children are like the research and development division of the human species, and we grown-ups are production and marketing.~Alison Gopnik


Children Marketing Young

Scientists learn about the world in three ways: They analyze statistical patterns in the data, they do experiments, and they learn from the data and ideas of other scientists. The recent studies show that children also learn in these ways.~Alison Gopnik


Children World Learn

Scientists and philosophers tend to treat knowledge, imagination and love as if they were all very separate parts of human nature. But when it comes to children, all three are deeply entwined. Children learn the truth by imagining all the ways the world could be, and testing those possibilities.~Alison Gopnik


Love Nature Children

From an evolutionary perspective children are, literally, designed to learn. Childhood is a special period of protected immaturity. It gives the young breathing time to master the things they will need to know in order to survive as adults.~Alison Gopnik


Time Children Childhood

You have to start with slavery because those abuses have never been eradicated. You know, people are not living in slums because they voted to. You know, their children are not in jail because they wanted them to. You know, these are the results of a people who have been oppressed and suffer national oppression, you know.~Amiri Baraka


Children People Slavery

Our notion of the perfect society embraces the family as its center and ornament, and this paradise is not secure until children appear to animate and complete the picture.~Amos Bronson Alcott


Family Children Society

A lot of parents today are terrified that something they say to their children might make them 'feel bad.' But, hey, if they've done something wrong, they should feel bad. Kids with a sense of responsibility, not entitlement, who know when to experience gratitude and humility, will be better at navigating the social shoals of college.~Amy Chua


Children Gratitude Parents

In Chinese culture, it wouldn't occur to kids to question or talk back to their parents. In American culture, kids in books, TV shows and movies constantly score points with their snappy back talk. Typically, it's the parents who need to be taught a life lesson - by their children.~Amy Chua


Life Children Parents

Some people are just self-motivated - my husband was. I also believe there are many children for whom parental involvement is key.~Amy Chua


Children People Husband

Real self-esteem has to be earned. I also believe in virtuous circles, like, nothing is fun until you are good at it. It is great if you can instill in children the ability to not give up, to have a work ethic.~Amy Chua


Work Children Good

Going to India to do a film is not an everyday affair. I thought I would do that one movie to show my grandchildren when I am 60.~Amy Jackson


I Am Grandchildren Thought

My mom had this romantic notion of her children playing classical music. The idea is you learn it when you're still learning language. It's using the same part of the brain.~Andrew Bird


Mom Music Children

Everyone prefers some foods over others, but some adults take this tendency to an extreme. These people tend to prefer the kinds of bland food they may have enjoyed as children - such as plain or buttered pasta, macaroni and cheese, cheese pizza, French fries and grilled cheese sandwiches - and to restrict their eating to just a few dishes.~Andrew Weil


Children Food May

I fell in love with Erica Kane the summer before my freshman year of high school. Like all red-blooded teen American boys, I'd come home from water polo practice and eat a box of Entenmann's Pop'Ems donut holes in front of the TV while obsessively fawning over 'All My Children' and Erica, her clothes, and her narcissistic attitude.~Andy Cohen


Love Children Attitude

Susan Lucci was the biggest star in the daytime galaxy, and she served it up hot and fresh and chic five days a week. Before there was Joan Collins's Alexis Morrell Carrington Colby Dexter Rowan on 'Dynasty,' there was Erica Kane Martin Brent Cudahy Chandler Montgomery Montgomery Chandler Marick Marick Montgomery on 'All My Children.'~Andy Cohen


Children Week She

You have to realise that I am the third out of six children, and I am raised with very strong core values and a very strong upbringing. I always put myself in other people's shoes.~Angela Ahrendts


Children Myself Strong

Coming through the fire and through the storm of life with a strong man, my fiance Ashanti, whom I've been dating for eight months and two wonderful children beside me, I'm just so happy that I have been able to maintain my integrity and get to where I am today with the right energy around me.~Angie Stone


Life Children Happy

I knew there were calls for diversity in children's lit, but you always wonder as a person of color, how diverse is too diverse?~Angie Thomas


Children Diversity Color

I'm an exile. My father had the courage to leave with his wife, his mother and three children under twelve. It took more courage to leave, to sacrifice everything for freedom, than to stay.~Andy Garcia


Mother Wife Children

I've had my moments of insanity. But there is a certain responsibility to set proper examples for your children, and that influences your choices in every aspect of your life.~Andy Garcia


Life Children Choices

Children make you a better everything. Daughters open up a whole different sensibility to you. When you have children, it focuses you on them as opposed to on yourself.~Andy Garcia


Children Yourself Better

I think it's most important for children to understand the concept of respect and manners and also work ethic. I have a responsibility to those who came before me.~Andy Garcia


Work Children Respect

I want to love all the children of God - Christian, Jew, Moslem, Hindu, Buddhist - everyone. I want to love gay Christians and straight Christians.~Anne Rice


Love Children God

She was trusted and valued by her father, loved and courted by all dogs, cats, children, and poor people, and slighted and neglected by everybody else.~Anne Bronte


Children Father Cats

I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.~Anna Quindlen


Children People Building

Animation did not become the dominant form of children's television until the '60s.~Annette Funicello


Children Television Become

Children should have enough freedom to be themselves - once they've learned the rules.~Anna Quindlen


Children Parenting Freedom

Even as we enumerate their shortcomings, the rigor of raising children ourselves makes clear to us our mothers' incredible strength. We fear both. If they are not strong, who will protect us? If they are not imperfect, how can we equal them?~Anna Quindlen


Mothers Children Strength

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.~Anna Quindlen


Children Design People

Most original viewers of the Mickey Mouse Club didn't face the crush of family and social problems children have today.~Annette Funicello


Family Children Today

The children whom nobody leads by the hand are the children who know they are children.~Antonio Porchia


Children Know Nobody

People in Hollywood go home to their wives and children who look like they do. If you're in that position, your natural thought pattern is sometimes to think, 'Superman, oh yeah he's white.' You can't get mad at somebody for doing that. It's the world they live in and for some, they only live in that bubble.~Antoine Fuqua


Children Home World

But, in fact, there is nothing that can bring you closer to fearlessness about everything else in the world than being a parent - because everyday fears - like not being approved of - pale by comparison to the fears you have about your children.~Arianna Huffington


Children World Parent

Children born of married parents in America face a higher risk of seeing them break up than children born of unmarried parents in Sweden.~Arlie Russell Hochschild


Children Parents Risk

But it's amazing how many people think that gay men should slink off into the shadows when it comes to having friendships with children.~Armistead Maupin


Children Men People

I believe very firmly that gay people of every stripe and age should be role models for all children, and that means interacting with them.~Armistead Maupin


Children Age People

I'm a father to four kids, so it bothers me that even though our children think big naturally, our society systematically trains them out of thinking that way.~Astro Teller


Children Father Thinking

People lament that there's no roles being written for South Asian or Muslim characters. But their parents don't want their children to go into the entertainment field. You don't get it both ways.~Aasif Mandvi


Children Parents People

It is ironic that it doesn't matter how successful I am in any other capacity: ultimately, my parents' marker is 'Do you have a wife?' and 'Do you have children?'~Aasif Mandvi


Wife Children Parents

Children crave routine and find listening to the same stories over and over again soothing. If you've grown weary of the holiday books you've read your kid 7,883 times, try adding 'dude' to the end of every line of dialogue.~Adam Mansbach


Children End Listening

Autism currently affects one in 88 children in the U.S., and its prevalence continues to rise. That's why it's important to help organizations like Autism Speaks raise awareness and funds to support families and individuals impacted by it.~Adrienne Bailon


Children Support Help

If giving points to some students to achieve greater diversity is a quota system in violation of the Constitution, how can the awarding of points to the children of a less diverse alumni be upheld?~Adam Schiff


Children Diversity Giving

An infinite God can give all of Himself to each of His children. He does not distribute Himself that each may have a part, but to each one He gives all of Himself as fully as if there were no others.~Aiden Wilson Tozer


Children God May

The nomads' egalitarian lifestyle astonished the Greeks, who kept their own women indoors weaving and minding children. The exotic Scythian lifestyle fueled the Greek imagination and led to an outpouring of myths about fierce Amazons, 'the equals of men.'~Adrienne Mayor


Children Women Imagination

Any abuse of animals is the same as abuse of men, women, or children.~Alison Goldfrapp


Children Women Men

Our pets rely on us entirely for their nutrition. So if you're making your own judgments, that could lead to a mistake. At the same time, we have more control over our pet's diet than we do with our children or with ourselves, so your vet can tell you what is appropriate for your dog and you can assign them that.~Alison Sweeney


Time Children Dog

Can you believe approximately 17 percent of American children ages 2 to 19 years are obese? How about this fact: approximately 60 percent of overweight children ages 5 to 10 already have at least one risk factor for heart disease? We are all to blame for this - parents, schools, kids - all of us.~Alison Sweeney


Children Parents Heart

Two children of same cruel parent look at one another and see in each other the image of the cruel parent or the image of their past oppressor. This is very much the case between Jew and Arab: It's a conflict between two victims.~Amos Oz


Children Past Parent

The donning of the ear buds marks the beginning of teen life, when children set off on their own for the passage through adolescence.~Amity Shlaes


Life Children Beginning

The truth of the matter is I stayed in L.A. raising my children, and when they went to college, I packed my bags along with them and came to New York and looked for parts in the theatre, because that's always what I preferred doing.~Andrea Martin


Children Truth College

As part of the E.U., my children can have the freedom and the opportunity to work and live across Europe; to be ambitious in the world's largest market; and to access so much of the history, the culture and the opportunity which is our common European heritage.~Andrew Lansley


Work Children History

Jamie Oliver, quite rightly, was talking about trying to improve the diet of children in schools and improving school meals, but the net effect was the number of children eating school meals in many of these places didn't go up, it went down.~Andrew Lansley


Children School Trying

Like children all over the world, by the age of 10 I'd come to believe that most of the really humane creatures were not really human at all.~Andrew O'Hagan


Children Age World

In Britain, the great hidden secret of talking animals and children's literature is how political it was in its bones, beneath the obvious cuteness.~Andrew O'Hagan


Children Great Political

There are 80 million moms in the United States. Forty million stay at home with their children.~Andrew Shue


Children Home Parenting

All children everywhere deserve the opportunity that is unlocked for them by education.~Ann Cotton


Education Children Deserve

I've always enjoyed making up stories, especially when I was bored and just sitting around. It got really serious after the children came along.~Ann Leckie


Children Sitting Up

I recall an 18-year-old girl named Rachel in Zambia who was given a grant to start a business of her choosing. She decided to breed goats so she could sell the meat and the milk, and donate the kids to orphan children. She herself was an orphan, stepping into young adulthood with no resources, and it was her first opportunity to earn her own money.~Ann Cotton


Children Business Money

All countries have poor people. Yet it's a very rare country which understands the indignities of poverty, while education systems maintain the status quo. The children of the elite go to the best schools and get the best jobs, not because they are the best. We're not taking advantage of the intellectual power on this planet.~Ann Cotton


Education Children Best

There are 45 million children in Africa who are not in school. While other children are learning, exploring, and growing in the myriad ways that children were meant to grow, these children are trapped in a life of constant struggle. Without education, how can they be expected to escape such struggle? How can their children?~Ann Cotton


Life Education Children

To expose the hardships experienced by children who are deprived of the right to attend school, Camfed has produced a series of films about educational exclusion. 'Every Child Belongs in School' provides a glimpse into the lives of children who have been forced by poverty to leave school at a very young age and take a difficult life path.~Ann Cotton


Life Children Age

I said tonight I wanted to talk to you about love. Look into your hearts. This is our country. This is our future. These are our children and grandchildren. You can trust Mitt.~Ann Romney


Love Children Future

The prevailing view was that girls were outside of school because of the resistance of families to their education. But when I visited a local village, what everyone told me - the chiefs, the parents, the children - was that girls weren't in school because it was the boys that had a better chance of getting paid work in the future.~Ann Cotton


Education Work Children

We are all children of the same God, and we have to come together to solve our problems and not be fighting so much.~Ann Romney


Children God Together

You love each book. They're your children.~Ann Maxwell


Love Children Book

There's really no point in having children if you're not going to be home enough to father them.~Anthony Edwards


Children Home Parenting

There are people out there with three jobs and small children. Being an actor is a walk in the park compared to working as a cleaner overnight. I'm lucky I'm not plucking chickens.~Anne-Marie Duff


Children Small People

The United States is where I want to finish. I love the States. I want to have a subscription to NBA and go with my children to every game. I can already see myself there. I do not yet know the city, but why not play for Beckham's franchise in Miami? Playing under Beckham would be the best.~Antoine Griezmann


Love Children Best

It is, of course, traditional in children's literature to get rid of the parents.~Anthony Horowitz


Children Parents Get

If my children were as unhappy as I was at school, I'd send them somewhere else, but it never occurred to my parents.~Anthony Horowitz


Children Parents School

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


Love Children Parents

I do not think athletes should get a free pass. I don't think we should train our children and future athletes to believe that they are above the law and morality.~Armstrong Williams


Children Future Law

Let's remember the children who come from broken homes, surrounded by crime, drugs, temptation, their peers having babies out of wedlock, but who still manage to get a good education despite the many obstacles they face every day.~Armstrong Williams


Education Children Good

Receiving far less attention are the working class heroes, who go about their solitary work routines with quiet dignity, come home from another grueling day, yet still find time to interact with their children.~Armstrong Williams


Work Time Children

When I ask teachers why they teach, they almost always say that it is because they want to make a difference in the lives of children.~Arne Duncan


Children Teach Want

Almost 24 million children - one in three - are likely growing up without their father involved in their lives.~Arne Duncan


Children Father Growing Up

Research shows that children do better in school and are less likely to drop out when fathers are involved. Engaged parents can strengthen communities, mentor and tutor students, and demonstrate through their actions how much they value their children's education.~Arne Duncan


Education Children Parents

We have a house in Umbria that we bought just before we went to America. That meant we couldn't go there as often as we thought, but now we're back, we're going to start using it more. I love the light, the countryside, the language and the fact that children are accepted everywhere. The Italians get passionate about everything, too.~Ashley Jensen


Love Children Light

I think that children that are acting are always pretty savvy anyway because you're conducting yourself around adults a lot of the time, aren't you? But there is this worry now that children just want to be famous.~Ashley Jensen


Time Children Yourself

Only the pun remains. The pun, beloved of Shakespeare, children and tabloid headline-writers, is normally eschewed in the modern, sophisticated circles in which I move.~Arthur Smith


Children Circles Move

Every generation of children has its private hero.~Arthur Smith


Children Hero Generation

A good mother remembers to serve fruit at breakfast, is always cheerful and never yells, manages not to project her own neuroses and inadequacies onto her children, is an active and beloved community volunteer. She remembers to make play dates, her children's clothes fit, she does art projects with them and enjoys all their games.~Ayelet Waldman


Mother Art Children

If a good mother is one who loves her child more than anyone else in the world, I am not a good mother. I am in fact a bad mother. I love my husband more than I love my children.~Ayelet Waldman


Mother Love Children

Yes, I have four children. Four children with whom I spend a good part of every day: bathing them, combing their hair, sitting with them while they do their homework, holding them while they weep their tragic tears. But I'm not in love with any of them. I am in love with my husband.~Ayelet Waldman


Love Children Good

I tell myself that after four children my belly is already so stretched and flabby that I have to do origami to get my pants buttoned. One more pregnancy and I'd be doomed to elastic waists for the rest of my life.~Ayelet Waldman


Life Children Myself

I did not want to raise a genetically compromised child. I did not want my children to have to contend with the massive diversion of parental attention, and the consequences of being compelled to care for their brother after I died. I wanted a genetically perfect baby, and because that was something I could control, I chose to end his life.~Ayelet Waldman


Life Children End

I tend to approach giving interviews with the same sense of circumspection and restraint as I approach my writing. That is to say, virtually none. When asked what I made of blogs like my own, blogs written by parents about their children, I said, 'A blog like this is narcissism in its most obscene flowering.'~Ayelet Waldman


Children Parents Writing

Roaring like a tiger turns some children into pianists who debut at Carnegie Hall but only crushes others. Coddling gives some the excuse to fail and others the chance to succeed.~Ayelet Waldman


Children Chance Succeed

I believe that mothers should tell the truth, even - no, especially - when the truth is difficult. It's always easier, and in the short term can even feel right, to pretend everything is okay, and to encourage your children to do the same. But concealment leads to shame, and of all hurts shame is the most painful.~Ayelet Waldman


Mothers Children Truth

One of the darkest, deepest shames so many of us mothers feel nowadays is our fear that we are Bad Mothers, that we are failing our children and falling far short of our own ideals.~Ayelet Waldman


Mothers Children Fear

I think Michelle Obama is on the right track with her Let's Move campaign to bring down childhood obesity. She and I come from the same state, Illinois, which is number four in the nation for obese children. One out of five Illinois children are considered obese. Not overweight, obese. And two-thirds of Americans are either overweight or obese.~Aaron Schock


Children Childhood Obesity

We go fish, we also catch fighting fish, looking for birds and it was for kampong people, the paddy field was our the play field for the children.~Abdullah Ahmad Badawi


Children People Fish

Sometimes children do forget their filial responsibilities.~Abdullah Ahmad Badawi


Children Forget Sometimes

I, talking about my children, of course I wanted them to succeed in life, they have to choose whatever job or occupation that they want, I will not try to influence.~Abdullah Ahmad Badawi


Life Children Job

I was born in Jerusalem in 1939 to a poor family that shared a rented four-room apartment with two additional families and their children.~Ada Yonath


Family Children Born

Whereas Books of Wonder excels with children's literature, McNally Jackson is where I go for my adult new releases, and no, it has nothing to do with the fact that Taylor Swift shops there, too.~Adam Silvera


Children Literature Go

Germany is in terrible condition this year. This is particularly true of the working masses, who are so undernourished that tuberculosis is having a rich harvest, particularly of adolescent children.~Agnes Smedley


Children Rich Harvest

I was so tired once 'Abba' was over and just wanted to be calm and with my children. I married, was in 'Abba,' had my children, divorced, all in ten years. I wonder how I managed it, but I was young.~Agnetha Faltskog


Children Tired Calm

My life contains so many other things; I have my children, my grandchildren, my two dogs and a big place in the country. I have my own life.~Agnetha Faltskog


Life Children My Life

Both of them were the children of the United States. They sacrificed their children for the benefit of the others. But they were not very devoted children of the United States.~Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani


Children Others United

I believe it is my responsibility to do what I can for children and people with Down syndrome as well as in my native Dominican Republic.~Albert Pujols


Children Responsibility

I have five young children, and I take being a role model very seriously.~Albert Pujols


Children Role Model Young

I've said many times that there only two things to write about: love and death. And when you have children, you remember that the world is full of sharp corners and dangerous things, and suddenly you have these small, soft creatures, which you love in almost painful way.~Alexi Zentner


Love Children Death

My children have stolen my dreams in a very literal sense. I've lost months in the minutes and hours that Sabine and Zoey have needed me at night, their thin, butterfly-beating hearts pushed against me in the darkness.~Alexi Zentner


Children Dreams Darkness

I researched children's rights, divorce law, and parental kidnapping. Millions of children and parents are touched by the inadequacy of the legal system to deal with the human heart.~Amity Gaige


Children Parents Heart

I do think, in general, children are so perceptive, and they watch and they get so much, and that's wonderful. And it's also difficult for them because they see so much, but they don't understand.~Amity Gaige


Children Think Difficult

When my career first began, I didn't have children - so there's a whole lot of difference in the way I choose roles now. Not just films for my children, but how long I'm going to be away, and is Dad going to be home while I'm gone. That sort-of factor plays a part.~Amy Irving


Children Home Dad

I was born on an even keel. Family lore says I never cried, even at birth. I felt at ease on earth, in the right place. And like many children, I took comfort in life's regularity: Every few days it rained, the school bus came and went, and my parents were rooted in their union.~Amity Gaige


Life Family Children

When I give my time to a worthy cause, it's time well spent. Lending a voice to help raise money - or perhaps just awareness - is the least I can do to give back. When I spend time with people who are fighting for children, it puts everything into perspective.~Amy Robach


Time Children Money

I've dreamed of having my French bulldog become a bestselling children's heroine.~Andrea Seigel


Children Become French

All children are born pure egoists. They perceive their needs to the exclusion of all others. Only through socialization do they learn that some forms of gratification must be deferred and others denied.~Andrew Vachss


Children Learn Born

Victimizers of children are the enemies of any so-called society.~Andrew Vachss


Children Society Any

I did criminal defense work part-time, and that paid the bills for representing abused and neglected children... and for defending in juvenile court those kids the 'child protective system' had missed when it had the chance.~Andrew Vachss


Work Children Child

Peter Lucas and I live in Durham but spend a great of time in North Wales, where we have a cottage in the mountains, and in Vermont, USA, with my sister - who is a children's writer married to a poet.~Anne Stevenson


Time Children Sister

My first real awareness of Chechnya came when I was a college student studying in Russia. I arrived in St. Petersburg about two months after Anna Politkovskaya was assassinated for her reports on Chechnya. I lived with an elderly woman and her grown children in an apartment that was not too far from the neighborhood military cadet school.~Anthony Marra


Children Woman School

At one point in my career, while still hosting 'The Arsenio Hall Show,' I was told by my doctor that it might not be physically possible for me to have children.~Arsenio Hall


Children Doctor Me

I am still married, yes - no children. I have Benzo, though; he's my dog, a Lhasa apso.~Archie Panjabi


Children Dog I Am

I knew from a young age that I wanted to be an actor. I never even thought about other careers. The acting field is certainly not the path many Indian parents encourage their children to take, but mine were very supportive. They wanted me to have an education, but understood that this is what I wanted to do.~Archie Panjabi


Education Children Parents

I'm a grandfather now, and when I watch children's shows with my two-year-old grandson, Arlo, I'm delighted because it's completely non-traditional casting. It feels like a utopia. How the world should be.~Art Malik


Children World Grandfather

Chum was a British boy's weekly which, at the end of the year was bound into a single huge book; and the following Christmas parents bought it as Christmas presents for male children.~A. E. van Vogt

I get on fine with my mum and dad, but if they want to see the grandchildren, they come to me.~Aaron Johnson

I think if we understand better the impact of war on women and children, we might be more careful about the wars we start.~Abigail Disney

I've been drawing as long as I can remember. I think all children draw as soon as they figure out the thumb and can grab crayons. The only difference with people like myself is that we never stopped drawing.~Adam Hughes

It's a significant question: should black people only adopt black children, and white people white children?~Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje


Children People Black

If it's taught well, art really is important to kids early on. It helps children develop language and allows them to see themselves in a way that isn't right or wrong, because if they draw an animal with five legs instead of four, nobody's criticizing them for it.~Agnes Gund


Art Children Animal

One has to nurture a new generation, to raise children in the spirit of Islam.~Akhmad Kadyrov


Children Generation Islam

Ancestor worship, or filial piety so characteristic of Asian cultures, for example, does not really resonate with Americans who favor children, not grandparents.~Alan Dundes


Children Grandparents

I wanted to make an adult vampire film, not something for children.~Alexandra Cassavetes


Children Vampire Film

The human overpopulation issue is the topic I see as the most vital to solve if our children and grandchildren are to have a good quality of life.~Alexandra Paul


Life Children Good

Unless everyone grasps the importance of having only two children per couple, wars won't be over just oil anymore, they will be over water and food.~Alexandra Paul


Children Food Water

There is something inexpressibly sad in the thought of the children who crossed the ocean with the Pilgrims and the fathers of Jamestown, New Amsterdam, and Boston, and the infancy of those born in the first years of colonial life in this strange new world.~Alice Morse Earle


Life Children Ocean

The men in those old days of the seventeenth century, when in constant dread of attacks by Indians, always rose when the services were ended and left the house before the women and children, thus making sure the safe exit of the latter.~Alice Morse Earle


Children Women Rose

New York offers a bubble out of the literary life that is very useful. We have more time for the children, for the cooking.~Alvaro Enrigue


Life Time Children

A lot of professional dancers become professional when they turn 15 or 16 years old, when they're still children. So you've trained every single waking moment up until that point for a career that could maybe only last 10 years, maybe longer if your body holds up, if your injuries are kept at bay.~Amanda Schull


Children Moment Injuries

I can't imagine what it's like to go through life without shoes to protect your feet, and yet millions of kids do it. That's why TOMS is such an incredible company - it gives shoes to children who need them!~Amanda Hearst


Life Children Shoes

I have no regrets about not having children. I still wait for the pang of guilt, but I have none. I tune into the television show 'Nanny 911' occasionally which reminds me how much patience and love it take to be a good parent.~Amanda Donohoe


Love Children Good

I like to do projects in which you can see statistical results. I am very happy for all these small children, who have been the biggest group of victims of iodine deficiency.~Anatoly Karpov


Children Happy I Am

Children can take lessons in that school via the Internet and can score extra points like e.g. in Geography or History. That sounds very promising and is a fantastic basis for future steps.~Anatoly Karpov


Children Future History

I am thinking about chess in schools in particular. In the USA more than 3200 children competed in an event.~Anatoly Karpov


Children I Am Thinking

I read Claire Messud's 'The Emperor's Children,' I read Joseph O'Neill's 'Netherland' - but to me, they're not 9/11 novels. In 'The Emperor's Children,' 9/11 felt to me like a piece of the plot; the novel wasn't wrestling with what 9/11 meant. And 'Netherland' felt the same way. I liked both books a lot but I don't see them as 9/11 novels.~Amy Waldman


Children Me Way

Years later I would hear my father say the divorce had left him dating his children. That still meant picking us up every Sunday for a matinee and, if he had the money, an early dinner somewhere.~Andre Dubus III


Children Money Father

My parents are aging and there are difficult issues. It's strange to have children at the beginning of life and parents nearing the end.~Amy Waldman


Life Children Parents

My children, who are almost two: watching them develop has made me pay much closer attention to how we become who we are.~Amy Waldman


Children Me Attention

From a building right in front of my windows, I can observe the speed of the sunrises and sunsets. The voices of children playing, laughing, yelling, and crying on the playground crawl up to the eighth floor, where I write. Their voices sound so innocent from a distance.~Andrea Hirata


Children Distance Building

The truth is that contraception saves lives, prevents unplanned pregnancies, improves outcomes for children and reduces the number of abortions.~Ann McLane Kuster


Children Truth Truth Is

I believe in less government interference in people's personal lives, including whom to marry, when and whether to bear a child and how to raise kind and compassionate children.~Ann McLane Kuster

Children usually do not blame themselves for getting lost.~Anna Freud


Children Blame Lost

It is only when parental feelings are ineffective or too ambivalent or when the mother's emotions are temporarily engaged elsewhere that children feel lost.~Anna Freud


Mother Children Lost

My parents had four children quickly, divorced quickly - when I was two - and my mother remarried quickly. We were suddenly in a different environment with a different father.~Anna Chancellor

I'm always crying. I get a lump in my throat when I see intimacy between parents and their children.~Anna Chancellor

Thirteen, 13 children, and I love - I love them all. And I think I've been a good father to all of them.~Anthony Quinn


Love Children Father

Some caregivers want to reciprocate the care they themselves received as children.~Ariel Gore


Children Care Want

When you hear the party that glorified Occupy Wall Street blast success; when you hear them minimize the genius of the men and women who make jobs out of nothing, is that what you teach your children about work?~Artur Davis


Success Work Children

I think children in general have a very hard time - at least I did - expressing any pain because I didn't want to hurt the people that I loved.~Aleksa Palladino


Time Children Pain

I am a Soviet man, and Yeltsin is a Soviet man - maybe our grandchildren will be different.~Aleksandr Lebed


Man I Am Grandchildren

Children's programming in America, I think it's pretty shoddy in terms of lack of diversity. It's pretty much cartoons and Disney sort of shows. I don't find any of that stimulating for children.~Alex Kingston


Children Diversity America

In England, 'Doctor Who' has always been considered a children's show, at least by children.~Alex Kingston


Children Doctor Always

There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.~Alexander Chase


Children Successful First

It is unacceptable that the system we rely on to develop children into well-adjusted, learned, cultured adults allows drones to dominate and increasingly devalues freethinkers.~Alexandra Robbins


Children Learned System

Once you became associated with a children's show, you're finished.~Alexis Korner


Children You Show

Fathers and mothers have lost the idea that the highest aspiration they might have for their children is for them to be wise... specialized competence and success are all that they can imagine.~Allan Bloom


Success Mothers Children

Rock gives children, on a silver platter, with all the public authority of the entertainment industry, everything their parents always used to tell them they had to wait for until they grew up and would understand later.~Allan Bloom


Children Parents Rock

As a parent with young children, I would always find little things that bothered me when I was reading bedtime stories or watching shows or listening to children's music. I couldn't find any stories, games or television shows that were fun and exciting while also being morally instructive and patriotic.~Allen Covert


Music Children Fun

I was taught that in this country if you work hard, you can do anything, and I don't see a lot of those principles in children's books today.~Allen Covert


Work Children Today

Always be prepared; always work hard and take pride in your work no matter what it is. I still follow that advice and have already tried to pass it on to my children. They, of course, ignored me.~Allen Covert


Work Children Work Hard

I've always been a bit of an outsider... I just pop up, kind of. I have a life. I have children - I have three children - and I love the craft of acting; I'm dedicated to that... that's always meant more to me than just hanging out... I've always been kind of a weirdo in that respect, but if the role is good, I'm going to do it.~Ally Walker


Life Love Children

When you have kids, there's a tendency to put the marriage stew on the back burner and give it a quick stir now and then. But it's important to remember why you had children with this person.~Allison Pearson


Marriage Children Remember

My ideals told me that men and women could both go out to work and be truly equal. My children told me something more complicated, something I really didn't want to hear. Their need for me was like the need for water or light: it had a devastating simplicity to it.~Allison Pearson


Work Children Women

I loved Dad more for treating the biological reality as trivial, irrelevant. He loved me no less than his other three children.~Allegra Huston


Children Dad Reality

I think any good literature, whether it's for children or for adults, will appeal to everybody. As far as children's literature goes, adults should be able to read it and enjoy it as much as a child would.~Amber Benson

I owe it to my children to secure their future.~Amber Frey


Children Future Secure

If my children want to pursue their dreams, I will always support them.~Amrita Singh


Children Dreams Support

Cop families have guns in their houses. It's a bigger question for mothers. When is the right time to introduce to your children the things that could hurt them? But not having the knowledge could hurt them.~Amy Carlson


Mothers Time Children

I didn't want to get divorced, but at the point where your children are part of it, you have to do something. I would really love it not to have happened because it haunts you, it will never go away, and it is probably the biggest failure, and I have to live with that.~Amanda Harlech


Love Children Failure

My work is mostly about longing, human relationships, science and children - and a little bit about ghosts and reincarnation.~Amy Gerstler


Work Children Science

I don't think I am a proud person, but I think my children are incredible... I think I am part of that.~Amanda Harlech


Children I Am Proud

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.~Anatole Broyard


Time Children Nothing

I watch so much TV, it's sad. I watch 'Happy Endings', '30 Rock', 'Parks and Rec', 'The Office', 'Eagleheart', 'Children's Hospital'. 'Modern Family' I guess I'm still kinda watching.~Anders Holm

I grew up on a sugar plantation in Trinidad, on an expat estate, and that meant I had no idea about money until a lot later than most children.~Andrea McLean

My children and grandchildren loved the secret servicemen and women that served us. I was honoured that they thought I was important enough to protect.~Andrew Card

When I'm on the road traveling, the things I miss most are my two children and barbecuing with friends. Rack of ribs, lamb and veal are my specialties.~Angel Cabrera


Children Road Friends

I guess I so desperately want to see us put this planet right. It's so horrifying to me that a fifth of us are starving every night, and that forty thousand children die every single day.~Ann Druyan


Children Day Night

I especially don't like the graphic violence against women and children often depicted in novels such as 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' and others. I'm not sure if it's being done just to entertain or whether it really is necessary for the characters involved.~Ann Cleeves


Children Women Girl

Both of my children - my daughter Caroline, a public school teacher, and my son Elliot, an Army Ranger - are dedicating their lives to public service; thus, they have inspired my own decision to run for Congress.~Ann Callis

In March 1950, in New York City, I was married to Marietta Soffer. We have three children: Vilhelm, Tomas, and Margrethe.~Aage Bohr


Children City Three

I really like being thrown into the works. Many actors, I have found, have this as a common trait. We had to, as children, adapt to various situations with either a military family or things like that.~Adelaide Clemens

Far too often, children with developmental disorders are diagnosed solely on the basis of their observable behavior, slotted into broad diagnostic pigeonholes and provided generalized treatments that may not always meet their specific needs.~Aditi Shankardass

One thing I've learned, in the face of all kinds of indignities, domestic workers take so much pride in their work and love the children they care for.~Ai-jen Poo

What mothers need, as well as fathers, spouses, and the children of aging parents, is an entire national infrastructure of care, every bit as important as the physical infrastructure of roads, bridges, tunnels, broadband, parks and public works.~Anne-Marie Slaughter

If you were not a sinful, polluted, helpless, and miserable creature, this Savior would not be suited to you, and you would not be comprehended in his gracious invitations to the children of men.~Archibald Alexander

There are plenty of models who have children.~Arizona Muse

I highly recommend getting your career established first and then having children.~Arizona Muse


Children Having Children

I wouldn't want to go back over my life. I've done it all. I wouldn't have wanted to miss the Marine Corps. I wouldn't have wanted to miss the war. I wouldn't have missed college. Or playin' for the Colts. I got all the money I need. Five children. I got a truck. I have no regrets whatsoever.~Art Donovan

I don't want my grandchildren to go through what I went through.~Art Modell

I write to tell my grandchildren where they come from, and what their grandparents were up to, and I hope they will in their own way continue. I invite anyone else to listen in.~Arthur Hertzberg

If people grow things themselves, their children understand, then schools in the area know that this community's generating something with its own energy, to consume.~Arthur Potts Dawson

Beloved are Israel, for they were called children of God; still greater was the love in that it was made known to them that they were called children of God, as it is written, 'Ye are the children of the Lord your God.'~Akiva ben Joseph

When school children start paying union dues, that 's when I'll start representing the interests of school children.~Albert Shanker


Children School Start

We have three daughters, our own. And, of course, there's nothing more frightening than something bad happening to them. And also, the thought of our children turning bad in some ways is another frightening thought.~Alexander Ahndoril


Children Nothing Thought

Children are often better actors than adults because they have a greater capacity for believing in a situation.~Alexander Mackendrick

I had to marry a Greek; I had to stir up the ethnic pot. Otherwise, my children would have been anemic and sickly. Now they've got some good Mediterranean blood in them.~Alexandra Wentworth

I began to see during the civil war, in that part of the states of Missouri and Kansas where the doctors were shut out, the children did not die.~Andrew Taylor Still


Children War Die

I'm attached to my children with whatever flaws they have, and if some glorious angel broke through the living room ceiling and offered to exchange them for other, better children, I'd cling to my kids and pray away this specter.~Andrew Solomon


Children Angel Living

Just as in policing there is an emphasis on civilians to help with paperwork, we must free up trained and experienced social workers to focus on children, not bureaucracy.~Andy Sawford


Children Focus Help

The important things are children, honesty, integrity and faith.~Andy Williams


Children Integrity Faith

The Heart Gallery premise is very simple. It is a special traveling exhibit of photographs featuring Los Angeles foster youth, designed to highlight the need to find loving adoptive families for waiting children.~Angela Featherstone


Children Heart Waiting

The courts don't remove children from their home because the child underperformed at school or required extra long walks or a game of basketball in order to blow off the steam all 5-year-olds have. It's because the parents were unfit, not the kids.~Angela Featherstone


Children Home Parents

I write pretty much when I can. I used to be very particular about needing certain conditions for writing, but when I had children, I discovered that I was a lot more flexible than I thought.~Ann Packer

Being a good mother does not call for the same qualities as being a good housewife; a dedication to keeping children clean and tidy may override an interest in their separate development as individuals.~Ann Oakley

I basically don't do that well with children, although my sister says I'm a great aunt.~Ann B. Davis


Children Sister Great

Courage: Great Russian word, fit for the songs of our children's children, pure on their tongues, and free.~Anna Akhmatova


Children Courage Great

Some people talk about children wanting to be born as though somewhere out there in the collective unconscious there's a spirit, or a thought or an idea that wants to be born. And I sometimes feel that way about stories... that they're there and they want to be told.~Ann-Marie MacDonald


Children People Want

What scares me? I kind of believe in ghosts. I believe they can wander around, so that scares me. But the stuff that really scares me are the catastrophic events like my husband or children or my family being harmed, or something like that.~Annabeth Gish

Learning disabilities cannot be cured, but they can be treated successfully and children with LD can go on to live happy, successful lives.~Anne Ford

Children and teens need to explore the dark side as a healthy part of growing. If a child is protected from everything dreadful, he will have no coping mechanisms in place when finally confronted with disaster.~Annette Curtis Klause

Mysteries, like the Masonic rites, are ones parents and elders are sworn not to reveal to the uninitiated, which include all children. And so we sought for signs.~Anthony Hecht


Children Parents Elders

It doesn't seem to me strange that children should like the macabre, the sensational, and the forbidden.~Anthony Hecht

Parents are sometimes a bit of a disappointment to their children. They don't fulfill the promise of their early years.~Anthony Powell

The trouble with us is that the ghetto of the Middle Ages and the children of the twentieth century have to live under one roof.~Anzia Yezierska

Good teachers must inspire children to work hard - make projects and give them good marks even if genuine projects look crude and unprofessional.~Arvind Gupta

Even if society dictates that men and women should behave in certain ways, it is fathers and mothers who teach those ways to children not just in the words they say, but in the lives they lead.~Augustus Y. Napier

Knowledge is going to make you stronger. Knowledge is going to let you control your life. Knowledge is going to give you the wisdom to teach their children. Knowledge is the thing that makes you smile in the face of disaster.~Avery Brooks


Life Smile Children

One of the reasons that I accepted, once asked to do Star Trek, was to give a single child a chance to see the long thought, to see themselves some 400 years hence. It occurred to me that we must ensure that we keep in front of children the ever-changing horizon.~Avery Brooks

Mothers are fonder than fathers of their children because they are more certain they are their own. ~Aristotle
