Kids

Famous quotes containing the word kids:

    The movies were my textbooks for everything else in the world. When it wasn’t, I altered it. If I saw a college, I would see only cheerleaders or blonds. If I saw New York City, I would want to go to the slums I’d seen in the movies, where the tough kids played. If I went to Chicago, I’d want to see the brawling factories and the gangsters.
    Jill Robinson (b. 1936)

    We have to give ourselves—men in particular—permission to really be with and get to know our children. The premise is that taking care of kids can be a pain in the ass, and it is frustrating and agonizing, but also gratifying and enjoyable. When a little kid says, “I love you, Daddy,” or cries and you comfort her or him, life becomes a richer experience.
    —Anonymous Father. Ourselves and Our Children, by Boston Women’s Health Book Collective, ch. 3 (1978)

    let your kids go to the movies!
    get them out of the house so they won’t know what you’re up to
    it’s true that fresh air is good for the body
    but what about the soul
    that grows in darkness, embossed by silvery images
    Frank O’Hara (1926–1966)
