Truly Wonderful

Children are truly wonderful – here are some quotes that touch on being a kid and letting a kid be a kid…

Kids are… high with Life!

“Young people are in a condition like permanent intoxication, because life is sweet and they are growing.”

“Raising children should mean helping them to become what they already are in God’s eyes.”
(Eberhard Arnold)

“If you can give your son or daughter only one gift… Let it be enthusiasm.”
(Bruce Barton)

Children learn more from what you are, than what you teach.”
(W. E. B. Du Bois)

“Do not ask that your kids live up to your expectations. Let your kids be who they are, and your expectations will be in breathless pursuit.”
(Robert Brault)

“Children are our future, and the only way for the world to evolve, as I have been shown it should be, is for each generation to be more loving and compassionate than the one before. This is only possible if we support the children around us, and protect and encourage them so that they don’t need to lock their love away.”
(Lora Byrne)

“The most sophisticated people I know – inside they are all children.”
(Jim Henson)

“Truly wonderful the mind of a child is.”
(Yoda, Start Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones)

Yes, my child, yes
Life is made of openness
Innocent embracing
Hearts wanting to share
The love and joy
They carry inside
If there is one thing
I would like you to do
Is to hold on to that love
Hold on to that joy
And yes, yes, yes
Say yes to Life
