Life is not meant to be easy, my child; but take courage -- it can be delightful.
George Bernard Shaw quotes
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen quotes
I married the first man I ever kissed. When I tell this to my children, they just about throw up.
Barbara Bush quotes
It is good to realize that if love and peace can prevail on earth, and if we can teach our children to honour nature's gifts, the joys and beauties of the outdoors will be here forever.
Jimmy Carter quotes
I learned that you should feel when writing, not like Lord Byron on a mountain top, but like child stringing beads in kindergarten, - happy, absorbed and quietly putting one bead on after another.
Brenda Ueland quotes
Indecision is like a stepchild: if he does not wash his hands, he is called dirty, if he does, he is wasting water.
African Proverb quotes
Every gun that's made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed. This world in arms...is spending the genius of its scientists, the sweat of its laborers, the hope of its children - it is humanity from a cross of iron.
Dwight David Eisenhower quotes
Those who educate children well are more to be honored than parents, for these only gave life, those the art of living well.
I think, at a child's birth, if a mother could ask a fairy godmother to endow it with the most useful gift, that gift would be curiosity.
Eleanor Roosevelt quotes
We need to teach the next generation of children from Day One that they are responsible for their lives. Mankind's greatest gift, also its greatest curse, is that we have free choice. We can make our choices built from love or from fear.
Elisabeth Kubler-Ross quotes
