A Quote by John Boynton Priestley on affection, children, happiness, and trust

To show a child what has once delighted you, to find the child's delight added to your own, so that there is now a double delight seen in the glow of trust and affection, this is happiness.

A Quote by John Boynton Priestley on children, fashion, heaven, and schools

As we read the school reports on our children, we realize a sense of relief, that can rise to delight, that, thank Heaven, nobody is reporting in this fashion on us.

A Quote by John Boynton Priestley on beginning

But some of us are beginning to pull well away, in our irritation, from . . . the exquisite tasters, the vintage snobs, the three-star Michelin gourmets. There is, we feel, a decent area somewhere between boiled carrots and Beluga caviare, sour plonk and Chateau Lafitte, where we can take care of our gullets and bellies without worshipping them.
