I was angry and frustrated until I started my own family and my first child was born. Until then I didn't really appreciate life the way I should have, but fortunately I woke up.
When a child is locked in the bathroom with water running and he says he's doing nothing but the dog is barking, call 911.
When I approach a child, he inspires in me two sentiments; tenderness for what he is, and respect for what he may become.
It's more pressure on women to - if they marry or partner with someone, to partner with the right person. Because you cannot have a full career and a full life at home with your children if you are also doing all of the housework and child care.
My father was a man who didn't consider himself learned. He was a man who liked to be a farmer. He enjoyed his dairy farm and felt the calling. So there was a dedication. I was dedicated as a child to the service of God, and so there was this continual centering of a greater purpose than your own.
I always knew from that moment, from the time I found myself at home in that little segregated library in the South, all the way up until I walked up the steps of the New York City library, I always felt, in any town, if I can get to a library, I'll be OK. It really helped me as a child, and that never left me.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
It is impossible to treat a child too well. Children are spoiled by being ignored too much or by harshness, not by kindness.
One seeks to equip the child with deeper, more gripping, and subtler ways of knowing the world and himself.
I'm happy to report that my inner child is still ageless.
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.
In response to our fast-food culture, a 'slow food' movement appeared. Out of hurried parenthood, a move toward slow parenting could be growing. With vital government supports for state-of-the-art public child care and paid parental leave, maybe we would be ready to try slow love and marriage.
Arlie Russell Hochschild
A child educated only at school is an uneducated child.
The bird, the bee, the running child are all the same to the sliding glass door.
The task of the educator lies in seeing that the child does not confound good with immobility and evil with activity.
From kindergarten to graduation, I went to public schools, and I know that they are a key to being sure that every child has a chance to succeed and to rise in the world.
Ants are so much like human beings as to be an embarrassment. They farm fungi, raise aphids as livestock, launch armies into war, use chemical sprays to alarm and confuse enemies, capture slaves, engage in child labour, exchange information ceaselessly. They do everything but watch television.
I think a child may be the only thing that could give me true happiness.
The difference between writing a book and being on television is the difference between conceiving a child and having a baby made in a test tube.
Each time I free a child, I feel it is something closer to God.
If you keep on buying things made by child slaves in such conditions, you are equally responsible for the perpetration of slavery.
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.
You could say, in a vulgar Freudian way, that I am the unhappy child who escapes into books. Even as a child, I was most happy being alone. This has not changed.
Every three seconds in the developing world, a child dies needlessly due to lack of basic health care and other things we all take for granted.
As a child I experienced firsthand the severe effects of poverty and illiteracy, especially upon women and children. My parents taught me the importance of education and that it was a key to improving an individual's life.
