Quotable Sunday

Sunday, June 7, 2009

My little girl turns 4 today, so for this week's edition, I have chosen quotes about children.

A characteristic of the normal child is he doesn't act that way very often. ~Author Unknown

We've had bad luck with our kids - they've all grown up. ~Christopher Morley

A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm. ~Bill Vaughan

Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see. ~John W. Whitehead, The Stealing of America, 1983

Even when freshly washed and relieved of all obvious confections, children tend to be sticky. ~Fran Lebowitz

Every child comes with the message that God is not yet discouraged of man. ~Rabindranath Tagore

Children make you want to start life over. ~Muhammad Ali

A little girl is sugar and spice and everything nice - especially when she's taking a nap. ~Author Unknown

A child is a curly dimpled lunatic. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

It is not easy to be crafty and winsome at the same time, and few accomplish it after the age of six. ~John W. Gardner and Francesca Gardner Reese

We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today. ~Stacia Tauscher

You are worried about seeing him spend his early years in doing nothing. What! Is it nothing to be happy? Nothing to skip, play, and run around all day long? Never in his life will he be so busy again. ~Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Emile, 1762

In America there are two classes of travel - first class, and with children. ~Robert Benchley


Youth is a perpetual intoxication; it is a fever of the mind.
~Fran├žois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

Anyone who thinks the art of conversation is dead ought to tell a child to go to bed. ~Robert Gallagher

Children find everything in nothing; men find nothing in everything. ~Giacomo Leopardi, Zibaldone Scelto
