A Quote by Arjuna Ardagh on children, mutuality, parents, and respect

Whenever we release our need to be right about everything as parents, we are able to meet our children in a relationship of mutuality and respect.

A Quote by Arjuna Ardagh on children, connection, magic, mystery, parents, and place

Once we meet our children, even for moments, in a place of "I don't know," of relinquished authority, we return to the realms of mystery and magic, where real connection becomes alive again.

A Quote by J. Robert Oppenheimer on children, perception, and physics

There are children playing in the street who could solve some of my top problems in physics, because they have modes of sensory perception that I lost long ago.

A Quote by R. Buckminster Fuller on children, moon, people, pictures, time, and trees

Children will draw pictures with everything in them...houses and trees and people and animals...and the sun AND the moon.  Grown-up says, "That's a nice picture, Honey, but you put the moon and the sun in the sky at the same time and that isn't right."  But the child is right!  The sun and moon are in the sky at the same time.

A Quote by Howard Ikemoto on creativity, teaching, and children

When my daughter was about seven years old, she asked me one day what I did at work. I told her I worked at the college – that my job was to teach people how to draw. She stared back at me, incredulous, and said, “You mean they forget?”

A Quote by Benjamin Hoff on taoism, maturity, adult, children, awakening, realization, enlightenment, and wisdom

But the adult is not the highest stage of development. The end of the cycle is that of the independent, clear-minded, all-seeing Child. That is the level known as wisdom. When the Tao te Ching and other wise books say things like, "Return to the beginning; become a child again" that's what they are referring to. Why do the enlightened seem filled with light and happiness like children? Why do they sometimes even look and talk like children? Because they are. The wise are Children Who Know. Their minds have been emptied of the countless minute somethings of small learning and filled with the great wisdom of the Great Nothing, the Way of the Universe.

Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh and the greatness which does not bow before children.
