children

A Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh on buddhism, peace, and children

If we are not peaceful, if we are not feeling well in our skin, we cannot demonstrate real peace, and we cannot raise our children well either.

Thich Nhat Hanh

A Quote by Bewick Cory on life, family, children, hippies, goth, business, fundamentalist, and jesus

It's funny, the way kids grow up.  It seems to me that hippie families grow business kids, and business families grow hippie kids, and Fundamentalist families grow Goth kids, and Goth families grow Jesus freaks.  You can't win the adolescent war.  No sir.  No matter how hard you try.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on children, peace, love, and innocence

If we are to reach real peace in this world and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with children; and if they will grow up in their natural innocence, we won't have to struggle; we won't have to pass fruitless idle resolutions, but we shall go from love to love and peace to peace, until at last all the corners of the world are covered with that peace and love for which consciously or unconsciously the whole world is hungering.

Gandhi (1869 - 1948)

A Quote by Jules Henry on education, self-reliance, high school, children, culture, excellence, authenticity, and trusting oneself

The function of high school, then, is not so much to communicate knowledge as to oblige children finally to accept the grading system as a measure of their inner excellence. And a function of the self-destructive process in American children is to make them willing to accept not their own, but a variety of other standards, like a grading system, for measuring themselves. It is thus apparent that they way American culture is now integrated it would fall apart if it did not engender feelings of inferiority and worthlessness.

A Quote by Lena Lees on kuan yin, universe, karma, human senses, children, and love

"You must acknowledge and experience this part of the universe. Karma is intricate, too vast. You would, with your limited human senses, consider it too unfair. But you have tools to really, truly love. Loving the children is very important. But love everyone as you would love your children."

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on children and house of tommorrow

Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself... You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.

A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on childhood, children, men, ache, cosmos, and peace

Childhood knows unhappiness through men. In solitude, it can relax its aches. When the human world leaves him in peace, the child feels like the son of the cosmos.
