Famous quotes containing the word children:

    We are still barely conscious of how harmful it is to treat children in a degrading manner. Treating them with respect and recognizing the consequences of their being humiliated are by no means intellectual matters; otherwise, their importance would long since have been generally recognized.
    Alice Miller (20th century)

    I’m afraid the visit of such a distinguished critic may cause my children to become conceited. To you they are wax, but to me, their creator, they live and breathe.
    Crane Wilbur (1889–1973)

    If you tell children they are bad, that’s what they believe they are—and that’s probably what they will become.
    Louise Hart (20th century)
