Women play with their beauty as children do with their knives. They wound themselves with it.

Victor Hugo

Human beings are the only creatures who allow their children to come back home.

Bill Cosby

The truth is, we can’t keep our children safe, all we can do is love them, teach them as best we can, and then trust in their destinies as they embark on their own necessary journeys, out beyond the sheltered shores of childhood.

Katrina Kenison

All grown-ups were once children - although few of them remember it.

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Time is a game played beautifully by children.

Heraclitus

We live in a society where people are uncomfortable with not knowing. Children aren`t taught to say "I don`t know," and honesty in this form is rarely modeled for them. They too often see adults avoiding questions and fabricating answers, out of either embarrassment or fear, and this comes at a price. When children are embarrassed by or afraid of the feeling of not knowing, they are preoccupied with escaping their discomfort, rather than being motivated to learn. This robs them of the joy of curiosity. Let`s celebrate the feelings of awe and wonder in our children, as the foundation for all learning. Let`s teach children to say "I don`t know" and help them understand the power behind it. Let`s talk to them about how it feels to not know something. And, finally, let`s be honest with children about the limits of our own knowledge.

Annaka Harris

One of the most important gifts we can give our children is the confidence to say "I don`t know." It`s the foundation from which we begin our investigation of the world: asking questions, taking the necessary time to understand the answers, and searching for new answers when the ones we have in hand don`t seem to work. The feeling of not knowing is also the source of wonder and awe.

Annaka Harris

There is only one sin, only one. And that is theft. Every other sin is a variation of theft. [...] When you kill a man, you steal a life, [...] you steal his wife`s right to husband, rob his children of a father. When you tell a lie, you steal someone`s right to the truth. When you cheat, you steal the right to fairness.

Khaled Hosseini

When you believe in God, you should believe that all people are part of one family. If you love God, you can't love only some of his children.

Muhammad Ali

Nothing you do for children is ever wasted.

Garrison Keillor

So long as little children are allowed to suffer, there is no true love in this world.

Isadora Duncan

If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.

Norman Douglas

Teaching children about Hell is child abuse. Nothing but the unverifiable promise of permanent bliss or torture in the afterlife would make loving, decent, non-abusive parents inflict it on their children.

Greta Christina

When a child asks you something, answer him, for goodness` sake. But don`t make a production of it. Children are children, but they can spot an evasion quicker than adults, an evasion simply muddles `em.

Harper Lee

When your children are teenagers, it’s important to have a dog so that someone in the house is happy to see you.

Nora Ephron
