The first idea the child must acquire is that of the difference between good and evil.
I had the worst birthday party ever when I was a child because my parents hired a pony to give rides. And these ponies are never in good health. But this one dropped dead. It just wasn't much fun after that. One kid would sit on him and the rest of us would drag him around.
I have never denied my background or my culture. I have taught my child to embrace her Mexican heritage, to love my first language, Spanish, to learn about Mexican history, music, folk art, food, and even the Mexican candy I grew up with.
Some girls cannot go to school because of the child labor and child trafficking.
You see a child play, and it is so close to seeing an artist paint, for in play a child says things without uttering a word. You can see how he solves his problems. You can also see what's wrong. Young children, especially, have enormous creativity, and whatever's in them rises to the surface in free play.
If we can't begin to agree on fundamentals, such as the elimination of the most abusive forms of child labor, then we really are not ready to march forward into the future.
I went to law school. And I became a prosecutor. I took on a specialty that very few choose to pursue. I prosecuted child abuse and child homicide cases. Cases that were truly gut-wrenching. But standing up for those kids, being their voice for justice was the honor of a lifetime.
Some experts say we are moving back to the pre-antibiotic era. No. This will be a post-antibiotic era. In terms of new replacement antibiotics, the pipeline is virtually dry. A post-antibiotic era means, in effect, an end to modern medicine as we know it. Things as common as strep throat or a child's scratched knee could once again kill.
When I was a kid, I used to pretend to be Bond; I used to make up scenarios and irritate my sister and annoy my mother and father pretending to be someone else, so I kind of was already acting when I was a child. I just didn't really know it.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
John F. Kennedy
Being an only child is a disease in itself.
G. Stanley Hall
I have no hostility to nature, but a child's love to it. I expand and live in the warm day like corn and melons.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Being a child at home alone in the summer is a high-risk occupation. If you call your mother at work thirteen times an hour, she can hurt you.
For when a child is born the mother also is born again.
Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.
Rainer Maria Rilke
A liberal is a man or a woman or a child who looks forward to a better day, a more tranquil night, and a bright, infinite future.
America's future will be determined by the home and the school. The child becomes largely what he is taught; hence we must watch what we teach, and how we live.
Love is the child of illusion and the parent of disillusion.
Miguel de Unamuno
There are many little ways to enlarge your child's world. Love of books is the best of all.
I think a child should be allowed to take his father's or mother's name at will on coming of age. Paternity is a legal fiction.
Give me a child and I'll shape him into anything.
B. F. Skinner
Teach a child what is wise, that is morality. Teach him what is wise and beautiful, that is religion!
Any beast can cry over the misfortunes of its own child. It takes a mensch to weep for others' children.
I long remained a child, and I am still one in many respects.
Maturity - among other things, the unclouded happiness of the child at play, who takes it for granted that he is at one with his play-mates.
C. S. Lewis
Martin Luther King, Jr.
