    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)

    The route through childhood is shaped by many forces, and it differs for each of us. Our biological inheritance, the temperament with which we are born, the care we receive, our family relationships, the place where we grow up, the schools we attend, the culture in which we participate, and the historical period in which we live—all these affect the paths we take through childhood and condition the remainder of our lives.
    Robert H. Wozniak (20th century)

    The future which we hold in trust for our own children will be shaped by our fairness to other people’s children.
    Marian Wright Edelman (20th century)
