Words seem to play a huge part in our lives. We see a quote that we like and we instantly snip it out of the magazine and save it so that we can read it again. Some are inspirational, some of them make us laugh, some remind of us of ourselves. Whatever the reason, we are drawn to words that have been linked together. We can learn so much from them. In fact, a quote can change our lives or our way of thinking for at least a short amount of time. I have chosen some of my favorite quotes that I want to share.
I brought children into this dark world because it needed the light that only a child can bring.
The love of children inspires an interest in the welfare of all humanity.
James Lendall Basford
Children are one third of our population and all of our future.
Select Panel for the Promotion of Child Health, 1981
Even when freshly washed and relieved of all obvious confections, children tend to be sticky.
When I hear people talk about juggling, or the sacrifices they make for their children, I look at them like they're crazy, because 'sacrifice' infers that there was something better to do than being with your children.
The guys who fear becoming fathers don’t understand that fathering is not something perfect men do, but something that perfects the man. The end product of child-raising is not the child but the parent.
While we try to teach our children all about life,
Our children teach us what life is all about.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
If a woman has to choose between catching a fly ball and saving an infant's life, she will choose to save the infant's life without even considering if there are men on base.
"Human beings are the only creatures that allow their children to come back home."
I take a very practical view of raising children. I put a sign in each of their rooms: 'Checkout Time is 18 years.'
I hope you will stop by to take a peek at some of my other quotes, the good, the bad and the ugly lol!
