Children S Books quotes by Nichole Hansen
#1. When I was a grown-up I was just like you, and I did all the things you do. But it was hard to be that tall, so I decided I'd be small. #Quote by Nichole Hansen
Children S Books quotes by J. Aleksandr Wootton
#2. Fairytales teach children that the world is fraught with danger, including life-threatening danger; but by being clever (always), honest (as a rule, but with common-sense exceptions), courteous (especially to the elderly, no matter their apparent social station), and kind (to anyone in obvious need), even a child can succeed where those who seem more qualified have failed.
And this precisely what children most need to hear.
To let them go on believing that the world is safe, that they will be provided for and achieve worthwhile things even if they remain stupid, shirk integrity, despise courtesy, and act only from self-interest, that they ought to rely on those stronger, smarter, and more able to solve their problems, would be the gravest disservice: to them, and to society as a whole.
-On the Supposed Unsuitability of Fairytales for Children #Quote by J. Aleksandr Wootton
Children S Books quotes by Gleeson White
#3. To delight a child, to add a new joy to the crowded miracles of childhood, is no less worth doing than to leave a Sistine Chapel to astound a somewhat bored procession of tourists; or to have written a classic that sells by the thousands and is possessed unread by all save an infinitesimal percentage of its owners. It is, then, not an ignoble thing to do one's very best to give our coming rulers – children – a taste of the Kingdom of Art. #Quote by Gleeson White
Children S Books quotes by Rachel Lewis
#4. As night falls silently all around,
She carefully turns the last page. #Quote by Rachel Lewis

#8. Stop telling such outlandish tales. Stop turning minnows into whales. #Quote by Dr. Seuss
Children S Books quotes by Lloyd Alexander
#9. The thing that is maybe the real difference, the fundamental difference, is that in adult literature you can have a literature of despair and end the work without any hope; you can have a literature of the absurd in which life is pointless, meaningless ... In children's literature you can have a tragic ending ... nevertheless, maybe what happens makes some kind of sense; maybe there is hope. We have got to pull out of ourselves some kind of hope. This is the key difference between writing for adults and children. #Quote by Lloyd Alexander
Children S Books quotes by Kimberley Payne
#10. A group of owls is called a parliament, wisdom, or study. #Quote by Kimberley Payne

Children S Books quotes by Nina Jean Slack
#14. Although my road to writing seems like it may have come easily, there were a few bumps in that road. I didn't get a lot of encouragement from friends, although my family were great supporters. I also had many ... what you would call "mind-boggling" moments, when I would doubt myself and what I was writing. It has been said that we, ourselves, are our own worst critics.
All the hard work had payed off though, and I created a children's book that I am proud of, and an unforgettable little girl that will touch the hearts of many."-Nina Jean Slack #Quote by Nina Jean Slack
Children S Books quotes by Avi Salmon
#16. Book is the best friend, have no demand, no complain #Quote by Avi Salmon

Children S Books quotes by Emily Winfield Martin
#20. When I look at you and you look at me,
I wonder what wonderful things you will be. #Quote by Emily Winfield Martin
Children S Books quotes by Philip Pullman
#21. There are some themes, some subjects, too large for adult fiction; they can only be dealt with adequately in a children's book. In adult literary fiction, stories are there on sufferance. Other things are felt to be more important: technique, style, literary knowingness ... The present-day would-be George Eliots take up their stories as if with a pair of tongs. They're embarrassed by them. If they could write novels without stories in them, they would. Sometimes they do. We need stories so much that we're even willing to read bad books to get them, if the good books won't supply them. We all need stories, but children are more frank about it. #Quote by Philip Pullman
Children S Books quotes by Lloyd Alexander
#22. Writing for children can be completely honest in non-cynical ways. In adult books you're required to be cynical. It embarrasses us to say positive things. You can have affection and hope in children's books, but that is out of fashion in adult fiction. #Quote by Lloyd Alexander
Children S Books quotes by Mo Willems
#23. People think, Hey, I love kids, I want to write children's books. But they think children are happy. That's their first mistake. [Messinger, Jonathan. "Guilt for dinner: The Mo Willems interview." Hipsqueak. 5 May 2011. Web. 18 November 2011.] #Quote by Mo Willems
Children S Books quotes by Janet Autherine
#24. You are not alone in this world; you are the vine from a tree that connects all mankind. Long before you were born, God wrote greatness next to your name. #Quote by Janet Autherine
Children S Books quotes by B.B. Browning
#25. Stories can do and be anything they wish. Just like thoughts are sometimes upside down and inside out and sometimes don't make sense, stories don't have to make sense, even to themselves. So if something seems catawampus or upside down in these stories, please don't spend too much time trying to figure it out.
Just figure it's a quirk.
After all, people like to eat normal foods, but sometimes they might eat a laugh or a chortle or a snicker or they might wear yellow socks on their heads. You see, people and dogs and other Beings do the most amazing and silly things, just because. #Quote by B.B. Browning
Children S Books quotes by Tracey Morait
#26. I am Iris, Goddess of the Rainbow, the Sea and the Sky, and a Messenger to the Gods #Quote by Tracey Morait
Children S Books quotes by Terry Pratchett
#27. And Sam Vimes thought: Why is Young Sam's nursery full of farmyard animals anyway? Why are his books full of moo-cows and baa-lambs? He is growing up in the city. He will only see them on a plate! They go sizzle! #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Children S Books quotes by LaDene Mayville
#28. A harvester ant never quits and she never, ever gives up. #Quote by LaDene Mayville
Children S Books quotes by George Carlin
#29. Don't just teach your children to read ...
Teach them to question what they read.
Teach them to question everything. #Quote by George Carlin
Children S Books quotes by Soraya Diase Coffelt

Children S Books quotes by Emily Hughes
#31. Because you cannot tame something so happily wild... #Quote by Emily Hughes
Children S Books quotes by Leah Broadby
#32. If we all learnt cat-speak, we would often find they are saying, "You stupid human, I am trying to tell you something important right now! #Quote by Leah Broadby
Children S Books quotes by Michael Ende
#33. One may enter the literary parlor via just about any door, be it the prison door, the madhouse door, or the brothel door. There is but one door one may not enter it through, which is the child room door. The critics will never forgive you such. The great Rudyard Kipling is one of a number of people to have suffered from this. I keep wondering to myself what this peculiar contempt towards anything related to childhood is all about. #Quote by Michael Ende
Children S Books quotes by Annie Bryant
#34. One of my rules is never to look sideways at what other people are doing but instead, do what I feel is right. #Quote by Annie Bryant
Children S Books quotes by Wendy Milton
#35. Angel of Fire is about an ordinary boy to whom extraordinary things happen #Quote by Wendy Milton
Children S Books quotes by Rachel Lewis

She sits still as the boat silently floats
Under the infinite blue sky. #Quote by Rachel Lewis

Children S Books quotes by Louise Seaman Bechtel
#41. [W]e have reason to ask what artists are working specially for children, and whether they are running with the popular tide or saying something special.... In America, we had the 'parlor gift book' makers, but we also had Howard Pyle. #Quote by Louise Seaman Bechtel
Children S Books quotes by Kaal Kaczmarek
#42. Sensing that this stranger was not the dangerous kind, and being the caring, big-hearted dog that he had built his reputation on, Lucky decided that a good dose of tongue licking would put matters right. However, in a twist of bad timing, unluckily for Lucky, he landed his lick just as Felicity rolled over onto her back. So, instead of a friendly lick across the ears as he intended, Lucky's long slobbery, pink tongue made a trail from Felicity's chin to her cherry red lips and up to her forehead.
'AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGHHHH! #Quote by Kaal Kaczmarek
Children S Books quotes by Caz Greenham
#43. Oh, you mean fairy gossip, Eric," she giggled. "I get the picture," she said fluttering her lacy wings. "Don't look so sad, Eric. There isn't a day that passes when your nosy beak doesn't find its way into someone's business. I'm sure you'll find the best-ever story before #Quote by Caz Greenham
Children S Books quotes by Gusty McCabe
#44. Gusty McCabe, tha's m' name and tellin' stories, tha's m' game, If they all ain't true I ain't t' blame, I'll tell 'em all just the same. #Quote by Gusty McCabe
Children S Books quotes by KayeC Jones
#45. The people knew then that Greg wasn't a monster, just a hungry animal. #Quote by KayeC Jones
Children S Books quotes by Philip Pullman
#46. When you look at what C.S. Lewis is saying, his message is so anti-life, so cruel, so unjust. The view that the Narnia books have for the material world is one of almost undisguised contempt. At one point, the old professor says, 'It's all in Plato' - meaning that the physical world we see around us is the crude, shabby, imperfect, second-rate copy of something much better. I want to emphasize the simple physical truth of things, the absolute primacy of the material life, rather than the spiritual or the afterlife.

[The New York Times interview, 2000] #Quote by Philip Pullman
Children S Books quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#47. Children are supposed to be free spirits and dream chasers, thinking of limitless opportunities. They are supposed to be filled with light that shines with happiness and joy that shouldn't be dimmed or filled with darkness and fear. #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Children S Books quotes by Ikechukwu Joseph
#48. Children need your LOVE especially when they don't deserve it #Quote by Ikechukwu Joseph

#50. He wasn't like the other bears. While everyone else was hibernating, he would be out putting on his sneakers. #Quote by Peter Wisan
Children S Books quotes by Don Roff
#51. If you write a kid's book only for kids, then you have failed. #Quote by Don Roff
Children S Books quotes by Veronica Randolph Batterson
#52. Dancing. I couldn't understand the fascination my brother had for it, but I could respect what it meant to him. How could one imagine and wonder about something so simple? An action most take for granted, yet to those with limited abilities, it's as special as floating on a cloud and snatching the nearest star from the sky to stuff in your pocket so you might wish upon it whenever you choose. #Quote by Veronica Randolph Batterson
Children S Books quotes by Philip Pullman
#53. I'm trying to undermine the basis of Christian belief ... I'm not in the business of offending people. I find the books upholding certain values that I think are important, such as life is immensely valuable and this world is an extraordinarily beautiful place. We should do what we can to increase the amount of wisdom in the world.
[Washington Post interview, 19 February 2001] #Quote by Philip Pullman
Children S Books quotes by Lenora Riegel
#54. Oh, sweet little huggles," Mama said. "Remember what Pampy used to say when he wanted to be brave? #Quote by Lenora Riegel
Children S Books quotes by Lloyd Alexander
#55. In an age that seems to be increasingly dehumanized, when people can be transformed into non-persons, and where a great deal of our adult art seems to diminish our lives rather than add to them, children's literature insists on the values of humanity and humaneness. #Quote by Lloyd Alexander
Children S Books quotes by Esther Hershenhorn
#56. Though far you are near, cheering you on. #Quote by Esther Hershenhorn
Children S Books quotes by Alison Cooklin
#57. He cowered in terror as the body of the beast darkened the water above him. The monster swooped around the crevice, scenting the blood trail from Luke's foot. Luke saw that several of his toes had been ripped off. He felt sick. #Quote by Alison Cooklin
Children S Books quotes by Alexis York Lumbard
#58. Although people all over the world pray in different ways, it is to each heart the most precious light. #Quote by Alexis York Lumbard
Children S Books quotes by Alison Cooklin
#59. So you know that all living things share the same energy source and that every action that humans do to nature will affect everything on this planet. #Quote by Alison Cooklin
Children S Books quotes by C.S. Lewis
#60. For I need not remind such an audience as this that the neat sorting out of books into age-groups, so dear to publishers, has only a very sketchy relation with the habits of any real readers. Those of us who are blamed when old for reading childish books were blamed when children for reading books too old for us. No reader worth his salt trots along in obedience to a time-table. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Children S Books quotes by Casey Browning
#61. On ol' Halloween Night
These monsters join the living
If they had it their way
They'd stay until Thanksgiving #Quote by Casey Browning

Children S Books quotes by Nick Bruel
#69. As soon as I open this door, I'll be free. FREE! No more goofy cats screaming in my face and eating my shoes. No more biting and scratching and chasing me down the street. Outside this door is a big, wonderful world where goofy cats don't turn into furry whirlwinds that hit me on the head with a spatula. And soon I will be a part of that world once again! #Quote by Nick Bruel

#78. I don't know anyone who remembers meeting their parents when they were a baby so i'm just like everybody else. -Zoey (100% Real) #Quote by Tara Michener
Children S Books quotes by Neil Gaiman
#79. Often the adult book is not for you, not yet, or will only be for you when you're ready. But sometimes you will read it anyway, and you will take from it whatever you can. Then, perhaps, you will come back to it when you're older, and you will find the book has changed because you have changed as well, and the book is wiser, or more foolish, because you are wiser or more foolish than you were as a child. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Children S Books quotes by Abha C.
#80. Every child deserves to be read to. It is a great bonding time for you and your baby. #Quote by Abha C.
Children S Books quotes by Lloyd Alexander
#81. Children's literature as a literary aberration or at best a minor amusement is a notion held most strongly by people who read the fewest children's books. I think it was Ruth Hill Viguers who compared this attitude with asking a pediatrician when he's going to stop fooling around and get down to the serious business of treating adults. #Quote by Lloyd Alexander
Children S Books quotes by Daphne Du Maurier
#82. Roger left the cricket stumps and they went into the drawing room. Grandpapa, at the first suggestion of reading aloud, had disappeared, taking Patch with him. Grandmama had cleared away the tea. She found her spectacles and the book. It was Black Beauty. Grandmama kept no modern children's books, and this made common ground for the three of them. She read the terrible chapter where the stable lad lets Beauty get overheated and gives him a cold drink and does not put on his blanket. The story was suited to the day. Even Roger listened entranced. And Deborah, watching her grandmother's calm face and hearing her careful voice reading the sentences, thought how strange it was that Grandmama could turn herself into Beauty with such ease. She was a horse, suffering there with pneumonia in the stable, being saved by the wise coachman.

After the reading, cricket was anticlimax, but Deborah must keep her bargain. She kept thinking of Black Beauty writing the book. It showed how good the story was, Grandmama said, because no child had ever yet questioned the practical side of it, or posed the picture of a horse with a pen in its hoof.

"A modern horse would have a typewriter," thought Deborah, and she began to bowl to Roger, smiling to herself as she did so because of the twentieth-century Beauty clacking with both hoofs at a machine. ("The Pool") #Quote by Daphne Du Maurier
Children S Books quotes by J.M. Barrie
#83. Two is the beginning of the end. #Quote by J.M. Barrie
Children S Books quotes by Millie Florence
#84. The book she held had collapsed against her chest, planted like a shield between her tender heart and all that discouraged and despaired. #Quote by Millie Florence
Children S Books quotes by Jennifer Sodini
#85. No matter how different one looks or may seem, all are just shades in the colorful rainbow of life that loves everyone, no matter if they are short, purple, or green. #Quote by Jennifer Sodini
Children S Books quotes by Leah Broadby
#86. This is no tall story. Nor is it a short story. Indeed, a story cannot be measured, for their realities stretch far beyond a page or one person's life. #Quote by Leah Broadby

#113. Sometimes people who look different from you are scary. Maybe they are ugly. Maybe they are loud. Maybe they
are big. Maybe they are green. Maybe they are all those things. But you should not be afraid of them just because of how they look. You may find they are nice to you if you are
nice to them. #Quote by Jeff Hutchins

Walls made timeless by historic glory.
The small girl in the boat slows,
To listen to its story. #Quote by Rachel Lewis
Children S Books quotes by Lloyd Alexander
#117. I had been reading children's books all my life and saw them not as minor amusements but as part of the whole literary mainstream; not as "juveniles" or "kiddie lit," one of the most demeaning terms in the scholastic jargon.
My belief was, and is, that the child's book is a unique and valid art form; a means of dealing with things which cannot be dealt with quite as well in any other way. There is, I'm convinced, no inner, qualitative difference between writing for adults and writing for children. The raw materials are the same for both: the human condition and our response to it. #Quote by Lloyd Alexander
Children S Books quotes by Tracey Morait
#118. The light of Selene's chariot will appear before you and serve as your path #Quote by Tracey Morait
Children S Books quotes by Lloyd Alexander
#119. Children's literature is considerably more functional than a good portion of adult literature. If I were cynical, I might say: Children's books are written to be read; adult books are written to be talked about at cocktail parties.
There may be more truth that cynicism in that statement. My impression is that many adult books are written only to shock the reader (a short term goal, since shock quickly turns into boredom) or as calisthenics for the author's ego.
On the other hand, children's literature seems an area where books function as they were meant to; where they amaze, delight, and move our emotions. We can respect and admire any number of current adult books, but I find it hard to love them. #Quote by Lloyd Alexander
Children S Books quotes by C.J. Milbrandt
#120. We'll make the trip a race, and I'll get there first. #Quote by C.J. Milbrandt

you'd struggle in a quiz against a pigeon, you are capable enough of opening doors. #Quote by Elias Zapple
Children S Books quotes by Brian K. Vaughan
#125. All good children's stories are the same: young creature breaks rules, has incredible adventure, then returns home with the knowledge that aforementioned rules are there for a reason.
Of course, the actual message to the careful reader is: break rules as often as you can, because who the hell doesn't want to have an adventure? #Quote by Brian K. Vaughan

Children S Books quotes by Joanne Crisner
#128. Long before we even lose our lives, we lose our souls. Tragic but true. Some carry on - willing to make the sacrifices, putting what is perceived as important before anything else. Some tread into the dark - wasting moments of grace, letting themselves suffer from their own decisions or the other's domination. Some continue to love, give too much, and not leave even a little love for themselves. #Quote by Joanne Crisner
Children S Books quotes by Jeff Hutchins
#129. It's okay to dress up like another person, but never try to be someone else. Just try to be yourself, because that's what makes you special. Oh, and watch out if a dragon ever starts to dance ballet. #Quote by Jeff Hutchins

Children S Books quotes by Rachel Gathercole
#131. On a certain level, homeschooling is all about socialization. Whatever the teaching methods used in school or homeschool, it is ultimately the social environment itself that distinguishes homeschooling from conventional school. This social environment includes the nature and quantity of peer interaction; parental proximity; solitude; relationships with adults, siblings, older children, younger children, and the larger community; the ways in which the children are disciplined and by whom; and even the student-teacher ratio and the overall environment where the children spend their time. #Quote by Rachel Gathercole
Children S Books quotes by Polly Horvath
#132. It's not the natural disasters you have to fear. It's the ones that are inside of you, waiting to happen. #Quote by Polly Horvath

Children S Books quotes by Rosalie Bardo
#137. We are all CONNECTED and I genuinely believe we should never stop absorbing knowledge from those around us. Observe: Gain from another's experience. We all have something unique to share, so go out and engage the world with compassion, patience and generosity. #Quote by Rosalie Bardo
Children S Books quotes by Cameile Graham
#138. It takes a special reader to experience a special book, and allow the inspiration, inevitable in the process, to move him to action. #Quote by Cameile Graham
Children S Books quotes by Melanie Kirk
#139. Want to inspire your kids to read more? Try giving them kids some money to spend just on a book. Take them to a bookstore and let them browse and pick out one book that they will love. Or try going to a local library for a few hours and just let your kids sift through books that interest them. #Quote by Melanie Kirk
Children S Books quotes by Julie Murphy
#140. A male frigate bird blows up a wild red pouch on his neck. He can keep it puffed up for hours. It is his way of impressing the girls. #Quote by Julie Murphy

Children S Books quotes by Julie Dunlap
#142. Fred Olmsted sat at the edge of the stagecoach seat, chattering to his father about their trip. How exciting to see the towns and forests of western New York! Suddenly, Fred stopped talking. That roar in the distance could only be one thing. Niagara Falls! #Quote by Julie Dunlap

#147. Summerhill children are allowed to go through their gangster period, and consequentially more furniture is destroyed. #Quote by A.S. Neill
Children S Books quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#148. A father teaches his children that the battle is not determined by the enemy that stands around them, but by the God Who stands within them. And that lesson can only be driven home as they watch their father stand around them, while God stands within their father. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Children S Books quotes by David Foster Wallace
#149. This is apparently a little promotional ¶ where we're supposed to explain "how and why we came to" the subject of our GD series book (the stuff in quotations is the editor's words). The overall idea is to humanize the series and make the books and their subjects seem warmer and more accessible. So that people will be more apt to buy the books. I'm pretty sure this is how it works. The obvious objection to such promotional ¶s is that, if the books are any good at all, then the writers' interest and investment in their subjects will be so resoundingly obvious in the texts themselves that these little pseudo-intimate Why I Cared Enough About Transfinite Math and Where It Came From to Spend a Year Writing a Book About It blurblets are unnecessary; whereas, if the books aren't any good, it's hard to see how my telling somebody that as a child I used to cook up what amounted to simplistic versions of Zeno's Dichotomy and ruminate on them until I literally made myself sick, or that I once almost flunked a basic calc course and have seethed with dislike for conventional higher-math education ever since, or that the ontology and grammar of abstractions have always struck me as one of the most breathtaking problems in human consciousness - how any such stuff will help. The logic of this objection seems airtight to me. In fact, the only way the objection doesn't apply is if these ¶s are really nothing more than disguised ad copy, in which case I don't see why anyone reading them should #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Children S Books quotes by C.S. Lewis
#150. The worst attitude of all would be the professional attitude which regards children in the lump as a sort of raw material which we have to handle. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Children S Books quotes by Carlos Wallace
#151. Behind great men, children, companies or homes are some extraordinary women! Take time today and always to acknowledge the women in your life with a show of gratitude. Love compels a woman's heart. Appreciation drives her commitment. Kindness fuels her strength. Compassion gives her courage. God gives her to you. #Quote by Carlos Wallace
Children S Books quotes by George S. Patton Jr.
#152. For over a thousand years Roman conquerors returning from the wars enjoyed the honor of triumph, a tumultuous parade. In the procession came trumpeteers, musicians and strange animals from conquered territories, together with carts laden with treasure and captured armaments. The conquerors rode in a triumphal chariot, the dazed prisoners walking in chains before him. Sometimes his children robed in white stood with him in the chariot or rode the trace horses. A slave stood behind the conqueror holding a golden crown and whispering in his ear a warning: that all glory is fleeting. #Quote by George S. Patton Jr.
Children S Books quotes by Robert E. Slavin
#153. The principal reason that districts within states often differ markedly in per-pupil expenditures is that school funding is almost always tied to property taxes, which are in turn a direct function of local wealth. Having school funding depend on local wealth creates a situation in which poor districts must tax themselves far more heavily than wealthy ones, yet still may not be able to generate adequate income. For example, Baltimore City is one of the poorest jurisdictions in Maryland, and the Baltimore City Public Schools have the lowest per-pupil instructional expenses of any of Maryland's 24 districts. Yet Baltimore's property tax rate is twice that of the next highest jurisdiction.(FN2) Before the funding equity decision in New Jersey, the impoverished East Orange district had one of the highest tax rates in the state, but spent only $3,000 per pupil, one of the lowest per-pupil expenditures in the state.(FN3) A similar story could be told in almost any state in the U.S.(FN4) Funding formulas work systematically against children who happen to be located in high-poverty districts, but also reflect idiosyncratic local circumstances. For example, a factory closing can bankrupt a small school district. What sense does it make for children's education to suffer based on local accidents of geography or economics?
To my knowledge, the U.S. is the only nation to fund elementary and secondary education based on local wealth. Other developed countries either equalize funding #Quote by Robert E. Slavin
Children S Books quotes by Michael S. Horton
#154. Many Christians wonder if it is good for children to have them in the regular service. After all, they cannot understand what is going on. But imagine saying that you're not going to have toddlers sit at the table for meals with the family because they do not understand the rituals or manners. Or keeping infants isolated in a nursery with nothing but mobiles and squeaky toys because they cannot understand the dialogue of the rest of the family around them. We know, instinctively, that it's important for our children to acquire language and the ordinary rituals of their family environment in order to become mature. #Quote by Michael S. Horton
Children S Books quotes by Justin S. Holcomb
#155. Because of the widespread illiteracy during the period of the Reformation, catechesis often took place in face-to-face discussion. This is why "Luther intended his catechism to target primarily pastors, but also parents, and other 'opinion makers' who would in turn share the teachings of the catechism orally with children and illiterate members of the household. #Quote by Justin S. Holcomb
Children S Books quotes by Sylvain Reynard
#156. Think about it. We are fed in the Eucharist, by our mothers when we are infants, by our parents as children, by friends at dinner parties, by a lover when we feast on one another's bodies ... and on occasion, on one another's souls. Don't you want me to feed you? You don't want to feast on my body, but at least feast on my cake.
Gabriel chuckled. When Julia didn't answer, he turned his full attention to his dessert. She scowled. If he thought this disgusting display of food porn was going to get her attention and maybe make her a little hot and bothered until she was putty in his hands ...
... he was right. #Quote by Sylvain Reynard

Children S Books quotes by John Goldthwaite
#160. Generally speaking, all true children's stories make promises to their readers. Here you are, they say, unhandy and short, and there is a big world that one day will be yours. Listen to how it happened for Cinderella once upon a time, and Jack with his beanstalk, and Aladdin with his lamp. #Quote by John Goldthwaite
Children S Books quotes by Maurice Sendak
#161. so that it isn't upsetting to anybody. It's something we've always known about fairy tales – they talk about incest, the Oedipus complex, about psychotic mothers, like those of Snow White and Hansel and Gretel, who throw their children out. They tell things about life which children know instinctively, and the pleasure and relief lie in finding these things expressed in language that children can live with. You can't eradicate these feelings – they exist and they're a great source of creative inspiration. #Quote by Maurice Sendak

Children S Books quotes by C.S. Pacat
#163. (Dorothy) Dunnett is the master of the invisible, particularly in her later books. Where is this tension coming from? Why is this scene so agonizing? Why is this scene so emotional? Tension and emotion pervade the books, sometimes almost unbearably, yet when you look at the writing, at the actual words, there's nothing to show that the scene is emotional at all. I think it is because Dunnett layers her novels, meaning that each event is informed by what has come before (and what came before that, and what came before that) but Dunnett doesn't signpost in the text that this is happening, leaving it to the reader to bring the relevant information to the table #Quote by C.S. Pacat
Children S Books quotes by C.S. Lewis
#164. It must be a really great book because one can read it as a boy in one way, and then re-read it in middle life and get something very different out of it - and that to my mind is one of the best tests. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Children S Books quotes by Michael S. Horton
#165. Contentment is the virtue that contrasts with restlessness, ambition, avarice. It means realizing, once again, that we are not our own - as pastors or parishioners, parents or children, employers or employees. It is the Lord's to give and to take away. He is building his church. It is his ministry that is saving and building up his body. Even our common callings in the world are not really our own, but they are God's work of supplying others - including ourselves - with what the whole society needs. There is a lot of work to be done, but it is his work that he is doing through us in daily and mostly ordinary ways. #Quote by Michael S. Horton

Children S Books quotes by Pearl S. Buck

Children S Books quotes by No Longer Available
#169. Even if you're going through hardships, it doesn't mean that God isn't with you, he doesn't love you, or he isn't watching out for you. He may be testing your faith, seeing if you'll turn TO him in your time of crisis or turn AWAY from him. And if you're a true Christian, then that means that you're his child, and he's your father. And in the end, children always turn to their parents, and they'll forever need them. Just as we will always need God in our life to survive, and live a life as a Christian. Your life may not me extravagant here, but it will be in heaven, where you can be in the Lord's lap. #Quote by No Longer Available

Children S Books quotes by Alfred Nestor
#171. I quickly got used to being picked up by my mother, and taken to the air raid shelter near our home. Although frightening, this was a great adventure to me as a child, for in the shelter I played with the other children and we felt safe there as we were surrounded by grown-ups; although now the grown-ups were more worried than they had been in the past. There were greater feelings of anxiety and fear in the older people, which we children also felt, and it unsettled us all. #Quote by Alfred Nestor
Children S Books quotes by Fulton J. Sheen
#172. Even though Christ Himself would not deliver us from the power of the Totalitarian State, as He did not deliver Himself, we must see His purpose in it all. Maybe his children are being persecuted by the world in order that they might withdraw themselves from the world. Maybe His most violent enemies may be doing His work negatively, for it could be the mission of totalitarianism to preside over the liquidation of a modern world that became indifferent to God and His moral laws. #Quote by Fulton J. Sheen
Children S Books quotes by Carol S. Dweck
#173. When people hold on to a fixed mindset, it's often for a reason. At some point in their lives it served a good purpose for them. It told them who they were or who they wanted to be (a smart, talented child) and it told them how to be that (perform well). In this way, it provided a formula for self-esteem and a path to love and respect from others.

The idea that they are worth and will be loved is crucial for children, and -- if a child is unsure about being valued or loved -- the fixed mindset appears to offer a simple, straightforward route on this. #Quote by Carol S. Dweck
Children S Books quotes by Earl Nightingale
#174. You can predict a person?s future and divine his bank balance if you know two things: the books he reads, the people he associates with. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Children S Books quotes by C.S. Lewis
#175. For me the real evil of masturbation would be that it takes an appetite which, in lawful use, leads the individual out of himself to complete (and correct) his own personality in that of another (and finally in children and even grandchildren) and turns it back: sends the man back into the prison of himself, there to keep a harem of imaginary brides. And this harem, once admitted, works against his ever getting out and really uniting with a real woman. For the harem is always accessible, always subservient, calls for no sacrifices or adjustments, and can be endowed with erotic and psychological attractions which no real woman can rival. Among those shadowy brides he is always adored, always the perfect lover: no demand is made on his unselfishness, no mortification ever imposed on his vanity. In the end, they become merely the medium through which he increasingly adores himself . . . . And it is not only the faculty of love which is thus sterilized, forced back on itself, but also the faculty of imagination.

The true exercise of imagination, in my view, is (a) To help us to understand other people (b) To respond to, and, some of us, to produce, art. But it has also a bad use: to provide for us, in shadowy form, a substitute for virtues, successes, distinctions etc. which ought to be sought outside in the real world - e.g. picturing all I'd do if I were rich instead of earning and saving. Masturbation involves this abuse of imagination in erotic matters (which I thi #Quote by C.S. Lewis
