Children quotes


You live in a country that makes it harder to raise children than any other country in the world. You vote for me and I'll give you family values.

   Bill Clinton quotes

  

We must respect the other fellow's religion, but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart.

   John Gay quotes

  

If we want our children to possess the traits of character we most admire, we need to teach them what those traits are and why they deserve both admiration and allegiance. Children must learn to identify the forms and content of those traits.

   William Bennett quotes

  

Children and dogs are as necessary to the welfare of the country as Wall Street and the railroads.

   Harry S Truman quotes

  

The child learns so easily because he has a natural gift, but adults, because they are tyrants, ignore natural gifts and say that children must learn through the same process that they learned by. We insist upon forced mental feeding and our lessons become a form of torture. This is one of manís most cruel and wasteful mistakes.

   Rabindranath Tagore quotes

  

The object of education is to give man the unity of truth. Formerly, when life was simple, all the different elements of man were in complete harmony. But when there came the separation of the intellect from the spiritual and the physical, the school education put entire emphasis on intellect and the physical side of man. We devote our sole attention to giving children information, not knowing that by this emphasis we are accentuating a break between the intellectual, physical, and the spiritual life.

   Rabindranath Tagore quotes

  

When we accept any discipline for ourselves, we try to avoid everything except that which is necessary for our purpose; it is this purposefulness, which belongs to the adult mind, that we force upon school children. We say, "Never keep your mind alert, attend to what is before you, what has been given you." This tortures the child because it contradicts natureís purpose, and nature, the greatest of all teachers, is thwarted at every step by the human teacher who believes in machine-made lessons rather than life lessons, so that the growth of the childís mind is not only injured, but forcibly spoiled. Children should be surrounded with the things of nature which have their own educational value. Their minds should be allowed to stumble upon and be surprised at everything that happens in todayís life; the new tomorrow will stimulate their attention with new facts of life.

   Rabindranath Tagore quotes

  

Where parents do too much for their children, the children will not do much for themselves.

   Elbert Hubbard quotes

  

The whole commerce between master and slave is a perpetual exercise of the most boisterous passions, the most unremitting despotism on the one part, and degrading submissions on the other. Our children see this, and learn to imitate it.

   Thomas Jefferson quotes

  

Why must children die? I have reached the conclusion that the only purpose in the life of every man is to strengthen love within himself, and by strengthening it within himself, to infect other people with it

   Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy quotes
