Sometimes, when I hear people without experience of addiction blame addicts for their behaviour, I feel like saying to them: 'You simply don't understand - how can a child be held responsible for doing such a dreadful thing to himself?' But then again, at other times I have to acknowledge: it was done wilfully.
There's not a man, woman or child on the face of the earth who doesn't enjoy a tasty beverage.
Chronic malnutrition, or the lack of proper nutrition over time directly contributes to three times as many child deaths as food scarcity. Yet surprisingly, you don't really hear about this hidden crisis through the morning news, Twitter or headlines of major newspapers.
I think it's an enormous blessing to be the child of an immigrant who fled oppression, because you realize how fragile liberty is and how easily it can be taken away.
I really am at a place where I think we need to feed every child at school for free and feed them a real school lunch that's sustainable and nutritious and delicious. It needs to be part of the curriculum of the school in the same way that physical education was part of the curriculum, and all children participated.
I was the youngest child and got a lot more freedom than my brother and sister. I used to wander, doing my own thing under the radar, but I didn't get in bad, bad trouble.
Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.
We have the duty to protect the life of an unborn child.
A child educated only at school is an uneducated child.
The mother's heart is the child's schoolroom.
Henry Ward Beecher
Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.
Rainer Maria Rilke
A child cannot be taught by anyone who despises him, and a child cannot afford to be fooled.
James A. Baldwin
Forget like a child any injury done by somebody immediately. Never keep it in the heart. It kindles hatred.
Do not, on a rainy day, ask your child what he feels like doing, because I assure you that what he feels like doing, you won't feel like watching.
There are many little ways to enlarge your child's world. Love of books is the best of all.
The moment you have a child, in an instant your life is not for you, and your life is completely, 100 percent dedicated to another human being, and they will always come first. It changes you forever. It changes your perspective, and it gives you a nice purpose and focus.
I had this child, and it destroyed my family.
You don't know what unconditional love is. You may say you do, but if you don't have a child, you don't know what that is. But when you experience it, it is the most fulfilling ever.
A child who is protected from all controversial ideas is as vulnerable as a child who is protected from every germ. The infection, when it comes- and it will come- may overwhelm the system, be it the immune system or the belief system.
We cannot say that if a child is badly nourished he will become a criminal. We must see what conclusion the child has drawn.
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.
Sri Yukteswar showed no special consideration to those who happened to be powerful or accomplished; neither did he slight others for their poverty or illiteracy. He would listen respectfully to words of truth from a child, and openly ignore a conceited pundit.
Life is a corrupting process from the time a child learns to play his mother off against his father in the politics of when to go to bed; he who fears corruption fears life.
I don't have many friends; I'm very much a loner. As a child I was very isolated, and I've never been really close to anyone.
At birth, we are like cartilage - soft, flexible tissue. By the same natural process by which cartilage becomes hard bone, the soft, tender heart of an innocent child can become hardened by the circumstances into which she is born.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
