children

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on children, people, sensuality, wives, world, iron, fetter, trinkets, besotted, hankering, desire, break, renounce, free, longing, and abandon

The wise say that it is not an iron, wooden or fiber fetter which is a strong one, but the besotted hankering after trinkets, children and wives, that, say the wise, is the strong fetter. It drags one down, and loose as it feels, it is hard to break. Breaking this fetter, people renounce the world, free from longing and abandoning sensuality.

Buddha (563 - 483 BC)

A Quote by Brian Wilson Aldiss on children, hell, love, names, and society

When childhood dies, its corpses are called adults and they enter society, one of the politer names of hell. That is why we dread children, even if we love them, they show us the state of our decay.

Brian Aldiss (1925 -)

A Quote by Boyd K. Packer on ancestry, birth, children, fatherhood, generations, god, heaven, mind, mortality, nobility, people, spirit, and truth

You are a child of God. He is father of your spirit. Spiritually you are of noble birth, the offspring of the King of Heaven. Fix that truth in your mind and hold to it. However many generations in your mortal ancestry, no matter what race or people you represent, the pedigree of your spirit can be written on a single line. You are a child of God!

A Quote by Boyd K. Packer on children, fatherhood, god, and relatives

Get to Know Yourself Once you start getting acquainted with yourselves, finding out who you are and where you belong and who your relatives are, spiritually speaking as well as in the earthly frame of reference, you come to the astounding, overwhelming realization that you are a child of God-that you belong to Him, that He is your Father. He is our Father.

A Quote by Boyd K. Packer on children, food, and spirit

The spiritually starving hesitate to partake of the Spirit like a child's reaction to new and strange food. They must be offered a tiny bite on a spoon.

A Quote by Billie Jean King on children, dreams, heroism, impossibility, time, understanding, and wonder

It's really impossible for athletes to grow up. On the one hand, you're a child, still playing a game. But on the other hand, you're a superhuman hero that everyone dreams of being. No wonder we have such a hard time understanding who we are.

A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
