Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Russian Communism is the illegitimate child of Karl Marx and Catherine the Great.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder without any such gift from the fairies, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The timidity of the child or the savage is entirely reasonable; they are alarmed at this world, because this world is a very alarming place.

Barbarians fear the unknown for the same reason that Agnostics worship it --because it is a fact.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The essence of our effort to see that every child has a chance must be to assure each an equal opportunity, not to become equal, but to become different- to realize whatever unique potential of body, mind and spirit he or she possesses.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Who is more foolish, the child afraid of the dark, or the man afraid of the light?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Prejudice is the child of ignorance.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is the child in man that is the source of his uniqueness and creativeness, and the playground is the optimal milieu for the unfolding of his capacities and talents.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No use to shout at them to pay attention. If the situations, the materials, the problems before the child do not interest him, his attention will slip off to what does interest him, and no amount of exhortation of threats will bring it back.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When we of the so-called better classes are scared as men were never scared in history at material ugliness and hardship; when we put off marriage until our house can be artistic, and quake at the thought of having a child without a bank-account and doomed to manual labor, it is time for thinking men to protest against so unmanly and irreligious a state of opinion.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
One of the most obvious facts about grownups to a child is that they have forgotten what it is like to be a child.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The Great Society is a place where every child can find knowledge to enrich his mind and to enlarge his talents. It is a place where the city of man serves not only the needs of the body and the demands of commerce but the desire for beauty and the hunger for community. It is a place where men are more concerned with the quality of their goals than the quantity of their goods.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Parents and children seldom act in concert: each child endeavors to appropriate the esteem or fondness of the parents, and the parents, with yet less temptation, betray each other to their children.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Father in Heaven! When the thought of thee wakes in our hearts let it not awaken like a frightened bird that flies about in dismay, but like a child waking from its sleep with a heavenly smile.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
