Here are some quotes about children, childhood and families that are especially meaningful to me.
“A child must know that he is a miracle, that since the beginning of the world there hasn’t been, and until the end of the world there will not be, another child like him.” ~ Pablo Casals
“Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes
“There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.” – Nelson Mandela
“In family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony.” – Friedrich Nietzsche
I just had to add this last one!!
“Cleaning the house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the sidewalk before it stops snowing.” – Phyllis Diller
