A Quote by Charles Lamb on birds, delay, earth, home, and idleness

The bird let loose in Eastern skies, Returning fondly home, Ne'er stoops to earth her wing, nor flies Where idle warblers roam; But high she shoots through air and light, Above all low delay, Where nothing earthly bounds her flight, Nor shadow dims her way.

Charles Lamb (1775 - 1834)

A Quote by Charles Lamb on dreams, heart, and home

Who has not felt how sadly sweet The dream of home, the dream of home, Steals o'er the heart, too soon to fleet, When far o'er sea or land we roam?

Those evening bells! those evening bells! How many a tale their music tells Of youth and home, and that sweet time When last I heard their soothing chime!

A Quote by Charles Horton Cooley on affection, age, children, evil, home, impulses, morality, nature, power, sharing, simplicity, success, tact, understanding, usefulness, and world

Simplicity is a pleasant thing in children, or at any age, but it is not necessarily admirable, nor is affectation altogether a thing of evil. To be normal, to be at home in the world, with a prospect of power, usefulness, or success, the person must have that imaginative insight into other minds that underlies tact and savoir-faire, morality and beneficence. This insight involves sophistication, some understanding and sharing of the clandestine impulses of human nature. A simplicity that is merely the lack of this insight indicates a sort of defect.

A Quote by Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr. on adventure, cowardice, criticism, death, home, kindness, life, men, and mountains

Any coward can sit in his home and criticize a pilot for flying into a mountain in a fog. But I would rather, by far, die on a mountainside than in bed. What kind of man would live where there is no daring? And is life so dear that we should blame men for dying in adventure? Is there a better way to die?

A Quote by Carolyn Leigh on children, dignity, home, joy, justice, learning, peace, preparation, promises, schools, and seriousness

I won't grow up I don't want to go to school Just to learn to be a parrot and recite a silly rule. If growing up means it would be beneath my dignity to climb a tree I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow uuuuuuup, not me. I won't grow up I don't want to wear a tie and a serious expression in the middle of July. And if it means I must prepare to shoulder burdens with a worried air I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow uuuuuuup, so there. Never gonna be a man, I won't Like to see somebody try and make me Anyone who wants to try and make me turn into a man, catch me if you can! I won't grow up not a peny will I pinch I will never grow a mustache or a fraction of an inch Cause growing up is awfuller than all the awful things that ever were I'll never grow up, never, grow up, never grow uuuuuuup, no sir! I won't grow up I will never even try I will do what Peter tells me and I'll never ask him why I won't grow up no, I promise that I won't I will stay a kid forever and be banished if I don't And Neverland will always be the home of peace and joy and librety I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow uuuuuuuup, not me!

A Quote by Carl Burns on children, dreams, and home

A child on a farm sees a plane fly overhead and dreams of a faraway place. A traveler on the plane sees the farmhouse - and dreams of home.
