childhood

Where once my careless childhood strayed,/ A stranger yet to pain.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In childhood be modest, in youth temperate, in adulthood just, and in old age prudent.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Genius is childhood recaptured.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When we suffer anguish we return to early childhood because that is the period in which we first learnt to suffer the experience of total loss. It was more than that. It was the period in which we suffered more total losses than in all the rest of our life put together.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
But childhood prolonged, cannot remain a fairyland. It becomes a hell.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is always one moment in childhood when the door opens and lets the future in.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Behind the complicated details of the world stand the simplicities: God is good, the grown-up man or woman knows the answer to every question, there is such a thing as truth, and justice is as measured and faultless as a clock. Our heroes are simple: they are brave, they tell the truth, they are good swordsmen and they are never in the long run really defeated. That is why no later books satisfy us like those which were read to us in childhood --for those promised a world of great simplicity of which we knew the rules, but the later books are complicated and contradictory with experience; they are formed out of our own disappointing memories.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
From his childhood onwards this boy will be surrounded by sycophants and flatterers. In due course, following the precedent which has already been set, he will be sent on a tour of the world and probably rumors of a morganatic marriage alliance will follow, and the end of it will be the country will be called upon to pay the bill.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We have not passed that subtle line between childhood and adulthood until we move from the passive voice to the active voice -- that is, until we have stopped saying It got lost, and say, I lost it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Let a man turn to his own childhood -- no further -- if he will renew his sense of remoteness, and of the mystery of change.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The childhood shows the man, as morning shows the day.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The North American system only wants to consider the positive aspects of reality. Men and women are subjected from childhood to an inexorable process of adaptation; certain principles, contained in brief formulas are endlessly repeated by the Press, the radio, the churches, and the schools, and by those kindly, sinister beings, the North American mothers and wives. A person imprisoned by these schemes is like a plant in a flowerpot too small for it: he cannot grow or mature.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A graceful and honorable old age is the childhood of immortality.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The stories of childhood leave an indelible impression, and their author always has a niche in the temple of memory from which the image is never cast out to be thrown on the rubbish heap of things that are outgrown and outlived.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In early childhood you may lay the foundation of poverty or riches, industry of idleness, good or evil, by the habits to which you train your children. Teach them right habits then, and their future life is safe.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If you carry your childhood with you, you never become older.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Adulthood is the ever-shrinking period between childhood and old age. It is the apparent aim of modern industrial societies to reduce this period to a minimum.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Grown up, and that is a terribly hard thing to do. It is much easier to skip it and go from one childhood to another.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I am convinced that, except in a few extraordinary cases, one form or another of an unhappy childhood is essential to the formation of exceptional gifts.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Dr. Evil: The details of my life are quite inconsequential... very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds- pretty standard really. At the age of twelve I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum... it's breathtaking- I highly suggest you try it.More [08/06/2005 12:08:00]
I don't want to be stuck in one spot. My childhood was spent moving around. We were total nomads. Like gypsies, just moving from one place to another all the time. That's kind of ingrained into my psyche, into my being. I couldn't stand being in one spot for too long.More [05/19/2006 12:05:00]
It was a small provincial place with great people and I had a happy childhood growing up in Queens.More [08/16/2006 12:08:00]
My parents both sang very casually around the house. My family bought a wire recorder in the forties when I grew up, and they would sing a little into the wire recorder. Not seriously but just to make music around the house, and I must have liked the pleasing sound and their harmony. There was a little singing in my childhood and I could do that myself, I realized.More [10/22/2006 12:10:00]
I started dancing when I was 3, Scottish dancing. All my childhood memories were dancing like six days a week. I remember begging my mum to do ballet dancing because I did jazz and tap and then I wanted to start ballet.More [11/01/2006 12:11:00]
I haven't broken it off, but it is broken off,finished... I know it sounds corny, but we still see each other, and love each other, but it hasn't worked out. Perhaps we'll be childhood sweethearts and meet again, and get married when we're about 70.More [11/05/2006 12:11:00]
I went to LA because it's been a childhood dream, to live in a city where you can do television, film, and music.More [11/09/2006 12:11:00]
It's strange, because I remember the biggest point of my childhood was one Halloween when I was trick or treating and ended up at Henry Winkler's house and he answered the door. So I got to meet The Fonz. That was cool.More [11/19/2006 12:11:00]
Stanley: What are you still doing here? Look, I'm beginning to lose my sense of humor about all this.
Ginger: Ok, then I'll cut to the chase. If you want a chance in hell at getting your daughter back you better listen up. Unless of course, you want to stay here, in this loser existence, while your daughter grows up to be a fluffer in her new daddy's videos.
Stanley: With the courtesy of not confusing your own childhood with my daughter's.More [03/15/2007 12:03:00]
Randy Marsh: Stan, time to get up for school. Stan? What the...
[Sees Michael Jefferson a.k.a Michael Jackson, in bed with Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Blanket]
Randy Marsh: Mr. Jefferson!
Michael Jackson: Oh, uh, we were just having a slumber party.
Randy Marsh: Mr. Jefferson, this is highly inappropriate.
Michael Jackson: Inappropriate? No, you're being ignorant. They're my friends. You see, I didn't have a childhood so I'm really just a child myself. Here, everything's okay. I want you each to have $100.
Randy Marsh: Wow. I'm gonna go buy that new sport coat I've been wanting.More [05/02/2007 12:05:00]
John Murdoch: When was the last time you remember doing something during the day?
Inspector Frank Bumstead: What do you mean?
John Murdoch: I just mean during the day. Daylight. When was the last time you remember seeing it? And I'm not talking about some distant, half-forgotten childhood memory, I mean like yesterday. Last week. Can you come up with a single memory? You can't, can you? You know something, I don't think the sun even... exists... in this place. 'Cause I've been up for hours, and hours, and hours, and the night never ends here.More [08/19/2007 12:08:00]
Charley Butts: What kind of childhood did you have?
Frank Morris: Short.More [10/16/2007 12:10:00]
Birdee Pruitt: Childhood is what you spend the rest of your life trying to overcome. That's what momma always says. She says that beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it's the middle that counts the most. Try to remember that when you find yourself at a new beginning. Just give hope a chance to float up. And it will...More [03/26/2008 12:03:00]
Bernice Pruitt: My dad says that childhood is the happiest time of my life. But, I think he's wrong. I think my mom's right. She says that...
[Bernice's voice fades as Birdee takes over]
Birdee Pruitt: [laughing] Childhood is what you spend the rest of your life trying to overcome. That's what momma always says. She says that beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it's the middle that counts the most. Try to remember that when you find yourself at a new beginning. Just give hope a chance to float up. And it will, too...More [03/26/2008 12:03:00]

Ellen Brody: Martin hates boats. Martin hates water. Martin... Martin sits in his car when we go on the ferry to the mainland. I guess it's a childhood thing. It's a... there's a clinical name for it isn't there?
Brody: Drowning.More [04/29/2008 12:04:00]
My father was a farmer and my mother was a farmer, but, my childhood was very good. I am very grateful for my childhood, because it was full of gladness and good humanity.More [05/04/2008 12:05:00]
Harry: What is it out here with these women?
Harmony: Oh please, Harry, they're no different from anywhere else.
Harry: Yes, they are. These are damaged goods, every one of them, from way back. I'm telling you, you take a guy who sleeps with 100 women a year, go into his childhood - dollars to doughnuts, it's relatively unspectacular...
Harry: [putting a cigarette in his mouth] ... Now, you take one of these... gals, who sleeps with 100 guys a year, and I *bet* you if you look in their childhood, there's something rotten in Denver.
Harmony: Denmark.
Harry: [closing his cigarette lighter] That too! But it's abandonment, it's abuse, it's, "My uncle put his ping-ping in my papa!"... and then they all come out here!
Harry: [continuing] I mean, it's literally like someone took America by the East Coast and *shook* it, and all the normal girls managed to hang on.
Harmony: OK, everyone who hates Harry raise your hand!
[all the girls in the club raise their hands]
Perry: See that? Obedient little bitches too.

Paris is very beautiful, isn't it?



Alfred Bruger VII:
Very.



Miss Dorothy Ellis:
Um, tell me--is it true you've never seen Paris by daylight?



Alfred Bruger VII:
[surprised] Quite true!



Miss Dorothy Ellis:
And, furthermore, is it true you haven't seen daylight for years?



Alfred Bruger VII:
[laughing] Also quite true!



Miss Dorothy Ellis:
Aren't you curious?



Alfred Bruger VII:
Well, I have memories of the sun of my childhood days. 'Tisn't much. I think Edison's doing a better job.

Dr. Sampson, the Paleontologist:
Oh, it's heading for the Thames. They always made for the freshwater rivers to die. That's where their skeletons have been found - some irrestible instinct to die in the shallows that gave them birth. You know, all my life I hoped this would happen. Ever since childhood I expected it. I knew these creatures were alive somewhere, but I had no proof, scientific proof, and I had to keep it to myself, or my colleagues would have all laughed at me. See, no form of life ceases abruptly, and all those reports of sea serpents - well, what can they be?... The tall, graceful neck of paleosaurus. He can stay underneath the surface for an age, and now he comes to the top.

Bert:
You're a man of high position, esteemed by your peers. And when your little tykes are crying, you haven't time to dry their tears... And see their thankful little faces smiling up at you... 'Cause their dad, he always knows just what to do...



George Banks:
...Well, look - I...



Bert:
Say no more, Gov'ner. You've got to grind, grind, grind at that grindstone... Though childhood slips like sand through a sieve... And all too soon they've up and grown, and then they've flown... And it's too late for you to give - just that spoonful of sugar to 'elp the medicine go down - medicine go down - medicine go down. Well, so long, Gov'ner. Sorry to have troubled you.

[singing] When you rush around in hopeless circles, searching everywhere for something true, you're at the age of not believing, when all the make-believe is through.



Carrie Rawlins:
[speaking] That's Charlie, to a 'T'.



Eglentine Price:
[still singing] When you set aside your childhood heroes, and your dreams are lost upon a shelf, you're at the age of not believing, and worst of all you doubt yourself.


[speaking; about an apple core]



Eglentine Price:
Throw that into the waste basket.


[singing]



Eglentine Price:
You're a castaway where no one hears you, on a barren isle in a lonely sea.



Charlie Rawlins:
[speaking] What's that supposed to be, poetry?



Eglentine Price:
[still singing] Where did all the happy endings go? Where can all the good times be?


[speaking]



Eglentine Price:
Everyone on the bed who's going.


[singing]



Eglentine Price:
You must face the age of not believing, doubting everything you ever knew. Until at last, you start believing there's something wonderful in you!

Loren Lukas:
I hate cigarettes.



Stuart Richards:
Oh, really?



Loren Lukas:
I think they're disgusting.



Stuart Richards:
Well I enjoy them.



Loren Lukas:
All it is is anal regressive. If you want to quit I suggest you try another form of childhood stroking.



Stuart Richards:
I don't want to quit.



Loren Lukas:
I suggest you try an ostrich feather along the small of your back, up your spine up to the nape of your neck.



Stuart Richards:
Sounds addictive.



Loren Lukas:
Why do you come here?



Stuart Richards:
Why do you?

[about Grandmother's house]



Narrator:
Though it's been many years since I last saw it, I'll always remember that even my first impression was one of fear and wonder. My childhood was soon to be lost, my innocence shattered, and all our dreams destroyed by what we would find within.

Kevin Arnold - The Narrator:
Things never turn out exactly the way you planned. I know they didn't with me. Still, like my father used to say, 'Traffic's traffic, you go where life takes you' and growing up happens in a heartbeat. One day you're in diapers, the next you're gone, but the memories of childhood stay with you for the long haul. I remember a time a place, a particular fourth of July, the things that happened in that decade of war and change. I remember a house like a lot of houses, a yard like a lot of yards, on a street like a lot of other streets. I remember how hard it was growing up among people and places I loved. Most of all, I remember how hard it was to leave. And the thing is, after all these years I still look back in wonder.
