Motivational Quotes

Children

A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
- Ehrenreich, Barbara

King Edward VIII

Gibran, Kahlil

37.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do.

45.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller
