A Quote by Bill William Henry Cosby on children, learning, parenthood, and people

My childhood should have taught me lessons for my own parenthood, but it didn't because parenting can be learned only by people who have no children.

A Quote by Bill William Henry Cosby on brothers, children, discovery, motherhood, past, and survival

As I have discovered by examining my past, I started out as a child. Coincidentally, so did my brother. My mother did not put all her eggs in one basket, so to speak: she gave me a younger brother named Russell, who taught me what was meant by "survival of the fittest."

A Quote by Beverly LaHaye on children, curiosity, education, enemies, family, good, obsession, radicals, schools, and sex

One of the most devastating enemies of the family is radical sex education in the public school. It is more explicit than necessary for the good of the child. Too much sex education too soon causes undue curiosity and obsession with sex.

A Quote by Bernard Eugene Meland on awareness, children, conviction, creativity, experience, language, life, men, motherhood, words, and yielding

It is my conviction, and in this I think I concur with both James and Whitehead, that we participate in this Creative Passage as bodily event at a depth and fullness not manageable at the cognitive level. . . . In all of [life] there are depths of awareness accompanying the bodily event of living and experience that yield conditions of knowing which language may not convey, or, for that matter, cannot convey. Whitehead expressed this point in those memorable words, "Mothers can ponder many things in their hearts which their lips cannot express." [Cf. Luke 2:51.] Meland continues this passage by speaking of ways in which men, children, and adolescents, also, ponder experiences which they cannot express verbally.

A Quote by Bente Borsum on art, children, learning, mind, preparation, and work

There is no short-cut to art, one has to work hard, be open and flexible in your mind, keep the child alive inside you, and through a whole lifetime be ready to learn new things and, of course, be mentally prepared for a hard punch on your nose - especially when you think you are doing well.

A Quote by Benjamin McLane Spock on babies, children, fatherhood, good, motherhood, people, and study

The more people have studied different methods of bringing up children the more they have come to the conclusion that what good mothers and fathers instinctively feel like doing for their babies is the best after all.
