Famous Quotes

Happy young boy with dog "One hundred years from now, it will not matter what my bank account was, how big my house was, or what kind of car I drove. But the world may be a little better, because I was important in the life of a child."
- Forest Witcraft

"The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children."

"An aware parent loves all children he or she meets and interacts with — for you are a caretaker for those moments in time."
- Doc Childre, A Parenting Manual

"For only as we ourselves, as adults, actually move and have our being in the state of love, can we be appropriate models and guides for our children. What we are teaches the child far more than what we say, so we must be what we want our children to become."
- Joseph Chilton Pearce, Teaching Children to Love

"As adults, we must ask more of our children than they know how to ask of themselves. What can we do to foster their open-hearted hopefulness, engage their need to collaborate, be an incentive to utilize their natural competency and compassion...show them ways they can connect, reach out, weave themselves into the web of relationships that is called community."
- Dawna Markova
