Famous quotes containing the word children:

    There is no end to the violations committed by children on children, quietly talking alone.
    Elizabeth Bowen (1899–1973)

    The more I read and the more I talked to other parents of children with disabilities and normal children, the more I found that feelings and emotions about children are very much the same in all families. The accident of illness or disability serves only to intensify feelings and emotions, not to change them.
    Judith Weatherly (20th century)

    Dian G. Smith (20th century)
