A Quote by Arthur Ashe on belief, children, culture, effort, energy, sports, and time

I strongly believe the black culture spends too much time, energy and effort raising, praising, and teasing our black children about the dubious glories of professional sports.

A Quote by Arthur Gordon "Art" Linkletter on children, defense, and instinct

Children have an unerring instinct for knowing when they are being patronized. They go immediately on the defensive against head-patting adults who treat them like strange beings.

A Quote by Arthur Gordon "Art" Linkletter on children, mind, people, and reason

The two best interview subjects are children under 10 and people over 70 for the same reason: they say the first thing that comes to their mind. The children don't know what they're saying and the old folks don't care.

A Quote by Art Berg on beginning, belief, children, christ, church, compassion, god, heart, jesus, joy, justice, life, love, miracles, nature, sorrow, suffering, time, victory, and work

May I humbly, yet solemnly, add my testimony. I know that God lives. I know that Jesus is the Christ. This is his work; this is his church; he stands at the head today. More personally, I testify that he loves his children. When they suffer, whether from the effects of sin or the elements of nature, his perfect heart breaks. Yet his compassionate sorrow for us is swallowed up in his joy at our ultimate victory. For he knows the beginning from the end and sees, even as we suffer, the prize that we will win. There are miracles today. Some miracles just take time. This I believe.

A Quote by Arnold Joseph Toynbee on children, confidence, heart, husbands, life, mistrust, motherhood, needs, possibility, practicality, secrets, wives, and world

The world's greatest need . . . is mutual confidence. No human being ever knows all the secrets of another's heart. Yet there is enough confidence between mother and child, husband and wife, buyer and seller . . . to make social life a practical possibility. Confidence may be risky, but it is nothing like so risky as mistrust.

A Quote by Aristotle on birth, certainty, children, fatherhood, giving, motherhood, reason, and suffering

This is the reason why mothers are more devoted to their children than fathers: it is that they suffer more in giving them birth and are more certain that they are their own.

A Quote by Ardeth Greene Kapp on children, day, overcoming, parenthood, and purpose

It's okay that your parents aren't perfect; no one's are. And it's okay that they didn't have any perfect children either; no one's are. You see, our whole purpose is to strive together in righteousness, overcoming our weaknesses day by day. Don't ever give up on each other.
