Famous quotes containing the word children:

    Your children are not here to fill the void left by marital dissatisfaction and disengagement. They are not to be utilized as a substitute for adult-adult intimacy. They are not in this world in order to satisfy a wife’s or a husband’s need for love, closeness or a sense of worth. A child’s task is to fully develop his/her emerging self. When we place our children in the position of satisfying our needs, we rob them of their childhood.
    Aaron Hess (20th century)

    Your children and grandchildren will have their share of happiness; there’s no need to work a like a horse for them.
    Chinese proverb.

    “Hear me,” he said to the white commander. “I am tired. My heart is sick and sad. Our chiefs are dead; the little children are freezing. My people have no blankets, no food. From where the sun stands, I will fight no more forever.”
    —For the State of Montana, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
