A Quote by Alden Nowlan on adulthood, children, day, and imperfection

The day the child realizes that all adults are imperfect, he becomes an adolescent; the day he forgives them, he becomes an adult; the day he forgives himself, he becomes wise.

A Quote by Albert Peel, D.D. on children, failure, god, individuality, love, men, men and women, needs, and women

To remember that one is God's child, His own, that no matter what one has done God loves, even to the end, with a love that never lets go-that is the word men and women need when wars, hot and cold, mass movements and mass production, sweep over and swamp the individual. All else but this assurance fails the man in dire need.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on ambition, children, day, future, happiness, joy, life, play, spirit, and work

I feel that you are justified in looking into the future with true assurance, because you have a mode of living in which we find the joy of life and the joy of work harmoniously combined. Added to this is the spirit of ambition which pervades your very being, and seems to make the day's work like a happy child at play.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on art, children, desires, guidance, kindness, play, schools, society, and teachers

The point is to develop the childlike inclination for play and the childlike desire for recognition and to guide the child over to important fields for society. Such a school demands from the teacher that he be a kind of artist in his province.

A Quote by Alan Bennett on art, children, circumstances, losing, parenthood, and time

I was an only child. I lost both my parents. By the time I was twenty I was bald. I'm homosexual. In the way of circumstances and background to transcend I had everything an artist could possibly want. It was practically a blueprint.

A Quote by Akhnaton [Ikhnaton or Akhenaton] on action, belief, boldness, children, honor, and life

Say not that honor is the child of boldness, nor believe thou that the hazard of life alone can pay the price of it: it is not to the action that it is due, but to the manner of performing it.

A Quote by Aime Cesaire on children, dawn, dreams, and home

Africa, help me to go home, carry me like an aged child in your arms. Undress me and wash me. Strip me of all of these garments, strip me as a man strips off dreams when the dawn comes. . . .
