Our Children quotes by NoViolet Bulawayo, We Need New Names
#1. And then our children were born. We held their American birth certificates tight. We did not name our children after our parents, after ourselves; we feared if we did they would not be able to say their own names, that their friends and teachers would not know how to call them. We gave them names that would make them belong in America, names that did not mean anything to us: Aaron, Josh, Dana, Corey, Jack, Kathleen. When our children were born, we did not bury their umbilical cords under the earth to bind them to the land because we had no land to call ours. #Quote by NoViolet Bulawayo, We Need New Names
Our Children quotes by Deepak Chopra
#2. Every child needs as much mature love as you can give. What makes love mature - and not just adult - is the conscious spiritual intention behind it. The birth of a baby launches us as teachers of spirit. Afterward we rely on the grace of love, which guides our intentions in the years to come. Spirit lifts us above our individual fallibility, and in doing that it teaches our children the deepest, most valuable lessons. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Our Children quotes by Robert Edwards
#3. Soon it will be a sin of parents to have a child that carries the heavy burden of genetic disease. We are entering a world where we have to consider the quality of our children. #Quote by Robert Edwards
Our Children quotes by Pope Francis
#4. Fathers are so necessary as examples and guides for our children in wisdom and virtue. Without father figures, young people often feel orphaned; left adrift at a critical moment in their growth and development. #Quote by Pope Francis
Our Children quotes by Chris Van Hollen
#5. As we get closer to the end of this Congress, we should be addressing the urgent needs of the American people - the war in Iraq, affordable health care, a sensible energy policy, quality education for our children, retirement security, and a sound and fair fiscal policy. #Quote by Chris Van Hollen
Our Children quotes by George Q. Cannon
#6. No system of education can be perfect which does not teach the principle of righteousness and faith in God. Learning has not saved the world. It is of utmost importance that our children should, in the first place, be taught faith in God. This cannot be left out of our system of education. #Quote by George Q. Cannon
Our Children quotes by James Monroe
#7. In a representative republic, the education of our children must be of the utmost importance! #Quote by James Monroe
Our Children quotes by Keith Miller
#8. Our tremendous drive for social acceptance and toward conformity in our time is causing us to train our children to be a generation of young liars who do not even realise they are lying. We train our children to be subtly dishonest almost from the crib. "Shh... don't cry in front of all these people. #Quote by Keith Miller
Our Children quotes by Richard Simmons
#9. Our children are obese, either have or being threatened by diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and not socially adjusting properly to others because of a lack of fitness. #Quote by Richard Simmons
Our Children quotes by Yana Cortlund
#10. There is a simple but powerful African prayer that can be recited to remind you of this: Let us take care of our children, for they have a long way to go. Let us take care of our elders, for they have come a long way. Let us take care of those #Quote by Yana Cortlund
Our Children quotes by Queen Rania Of Jordan
#11. I believe that if we want our children to understand the world beyond their classroom, we must bring the world into their classroom. #Quote by Queen Rania Of Jordan
Our Children quotes by Peter Singer
#12. Sometimes we know the best thing to do, but fail to do it. New year's resolutions are often like that. We make resolutions because we know it would be better for us to lose weight, or get fit, or spend more time with our children. The problem is that a resolution is generally easier to break than it is to keep. #Quote by Peter Singer
Our Children quotes by Jacque Fresco
#13. The more intelligent our children, the better our lives and the richer our culture will be. #Quote by Jacque Fresco
Our Children quotes by Kate Atkinson
#14. I can't help but think that it's an unfortunate custom to name children after people who come to sticky ends. Even if they are fictional characters, it doesn't bode well for the poor things. There are too many Judes and Tesses and Clarissas and Cordelias around. If we must name our children after literary figures then we should search out happy ones, although it's true they are much harder to find. #Quote by Kate Atkinson
Our Children quotes by Charles M. Vest
#15. America faces many challenges ... but the enemy I fear most is complacency. We are about to be hit by the full force of global competition. If we continue to ignore the obvious task at hand while others beat us at our own game, our children and grandchildren will pay the price. We must now establish a sense of urgency. #Quote by Charles M. Vest
Our Children quotes by Gloria Reuben
#16. How can we teach our children to be responsible beyond themselves and care for other human beings' welfare and for the welfare of the planet and all that it contains? It's a difficult lesson to convey, when, more than 20 years after the Exxon Valdez disaster, Prince William Sound is still experiencing the damaging effects. #Quote by Gloria Reuben
Our Children quotes by Lindy West
#17. When faced with a choice between an incriminating truth or a flattering lie, America's ruling class has been choosing the lie for four hundred years. White Americans hunger for plausible deniability and swaddle themselves in it and always have - for the sublime relief of deferred responsibility, the soft violence of willful ignorance, the barbaric fiction of rugged individualism. The worst among us have deployed it to seduce and herd the vast, complacent center: It's okay. You didn't do anything wrong. You earned everything you have. Benefiting from genocide is fine if it was a long time ago. The scientists will figure out climate change. The cat's name is Tardar Sauce. We have to kick this addition if we're going to give our children any kind of future. #Quote by Lindy West
Our Children quotes by Hannah Arendt
#18. Education is the point at which we decide whether we love the world enough to assume responsibility for it, and by the same token save it from that ruin which except for renewal, except for the coming of the new and the young, would be inevitable. And education, too, is where we decide whether we love our children enough not to expel them from our world and leave them to their own devices, nor to strike from their hands their chance of undertaking something new, something unforeseen by us, but to prepare them in advance for the task of renewing a common world. #Quote by Hannah Arendt
Our Children quotes by Edwin John Dingle
#19. I am one of those who believe that in China we shall see arising a Government whose power will be paramount in the East, and upon the integrity of whose people will depend the peace of Europe. It is much to say. We shall not see it, but our children will. The Government is going to conquer the people. #Quote by Edwin John Dingle
Our Children quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#20. The function of our Government is to insure to all its citizens, now and hereafter, their rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. If we of this generation destroy the resources from which our children would otherwise derive their livelihood, we reduce the capacity of our land to support a population, and so either degrade the standard of living or deprive the coming generations of their fight to life on this continent. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Our Children quotes by Greg Rucka
#21. Superman is precisely what we should be teaching our children. Superman inspires us to our best. #Quote by Greg Rucka
Our Children quotes by Marianne Williamson
#22. Imagine how differently American business would function were our faith in the power of goodness to replace our faith in the power of money. Huge industries would no longer make billions of dollars on activities that diminish the well-being and safety of our children, our health, and our environment, on the pretext that it's "just business." To put money before goodness is idolatry, and the laws of the universe ensure that in the end all idols will fall. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Our Children quotes by Ruth Schwenk
#23. It takes a lot of pain, sweat, and tears to bring our children into the world, and just as much goes into bringing them up in the world. #Quote by Ruth Schwenk
Our Children quotes by Francine Rivers
#24. Have you ever been to the beach and wanted to feed the seagulls? The problem is you tear off a little crust from your sandwich and toss it to one, and ten more show up. Toss a little more and a flock descends. You start to wonder: if I run out of bread, will I become the meal?
Turkeys are different. They startle easily and run for the barn. In the wild, they run for the hills. Of course, they're very tasty. Benjamin Franklin thought them majestic enough to be an emblem for our country. I'm sorry, but Thanksgiving would be downright depressing. There's our national symbol lying stuffed and roasted and ready to carve up for hungry guests.
And then we have the eagles. Our forefathers were trained in the Bible. […]They would have known Isaiah 40:31. "Those who wait upon the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary." They were making war on the greatest power in the world of the time; the world was watching them. What could this band of commoners do?
What troubles me about our country today is how many seagulls there are, scrambling for more. Remember the movie "Finding Nemo"? "Mine, mine, mine!" And we sure have a lot of gutless turkeys running for the barn whenever hard decisions have to be made; like how to keep our country solvent so our children won't be in soup lines…
Where are the eagles? That's what I want to know. Please, God, we need us some eagles! #Quote by Francine Rivers
Our Children quotes by Gwyneth Paltrow
#25. We do live in an unsafe world. That's the truth. I'm dealing with that now, with my seven-year-old. He's grappling with the fact that the world is unsafe, and that there are people who do harmful things. I don't think there's anything wrong with presenting that idea. We can't lie to our children and pretend that the world is perfect, and everybody's happy, and everybody's out there to do good. It's just part of a bigger conversation. #Quote by Gwyneth Paltrow
Our Children quotes by Brooke Hampton
#26. May we each have the courage to move past our programming, and the example that was set for us. Let's dig deep and do our personal work so that we can be the best version of ourselves for these little earth warriors.
It's time to redefine parenting!
Our aim is not to be perfect- Our aim is only to create a childhood that our children don't have to recover from. #Quote by Brooke Hampton
Our Children quotes by John Hagee
#27. The battle against good and evil is raging now! Look at your television programming and movie advertisements presenting the occult ... the demonic ... the satanic ... the practice of witchcraft and sorcery in popular books ... the open hostility toward Christianity and the revival of anti-Semitism. The fight is on for the hearts and minds of our children in ours homes, our schools, our universities, and our society. #Quote by John Hagee
Our Children quotes by Audre Lorde
#28. It is as hard for our children to believe that we are not omnipotent as it is for us to know it, as parents. But that knowledge is necessary as the first step in the reassessment of power as something other than might, age, privilege, or the lack of fear. It is an important step for a boy, whose societal destruction begins when he is forced to believe that he can only be strong if he doesn't feel, or if he wins. #Quote by Audre Lorde
Our Children quotes by Henry B. Eyring
#29. A mortal parent may appreciate, in some small way, the feelings of a loving Heavenly Father. When our children come to the age when they must leave our direct care, we feel anxiety for their safety and concern that those who are to help them will not fail them. #Quote by Henry B. Eyring
Our Children quotes by Alice Smith
#30. Our powerlessness is largely a result of our prayerlessness. We are eating the bitter fruit of our failure to pray. Our children, government, churches and society are reaping the result of dry eyes in the pews and crusty hearts in the pulpits. Ed Silvoso says it well in his book That None Should Perish: When Christians begin to pray for the felt needs of the lost, God surprises them with almost immediate answers to prayer. In fact, prayer for the needs of that one-hundredth sheep is the spiritual equivalent of dialing 911.3 #Quote by Alice Smith
Our Children quotes by Stephanie Pace Marshall
#31. The nature of schooling as we know it has become the unquestioned answer to educating our children. It is not. Knowing what we now know, we can no longer do what we now do. It is time to reconnect our children and our systems to their abundant learning potentials and reengage them in the joy of learning. #Quote by Stephanie Pace Marshall
Our Children quotes by Monica Potter
#32. You can't force your child to go to bed. Well, you can, but it doesn't work. #Quote by Monica Potter
Our Children quotes by Jason Versey
#33. Every great accomplishment has its share of struggle, adversity and pain. Great achievement cannot exist without them. To reap the rewards of success in our marriages, in the lives of our children, and in our professional careers we must be prepared to push through some pretty tough moments. But trust me... on the other side of that struggle awaits an intrinsic reward that is worth more than gold. ~Jason Versey #Quote by Jason Versey
Our Children quotes by Jeff Landry
#34. I don't intend to spend my morning being lectured to by a president whose failed policies have put our children and grandchildren in a huge burden of debt. #Quote by Jeff Landry
Our Children quotes by Gary F. Jones
#35. We scatter wisdom through our libraries that it may be ignored by our children. #Quote by Gary F. Jones
Our Children quotes by Amy Carmichael
#36. If our children were to grow up truthful they much be taught by those who had a regard for truth; and not just a casual regard, a delicate regard. On this point we were adamant. #Quote by Amy Carmichael
Our Children quotes by Benjamin Spock
#37. Can we make a better world for our children? I believe we can, if enough people are concerned and get involved in changing what is wrong with society. #Quote by Benjamin Spock
Our Children quotes by Byron Katie
#38. Our parents, our children, our spouses, and our friends will continue to press every button we have, until we realize what it is that we don't want to know about ourselves, yet. They will point us to our freedom every time. #Quote by Byron Katie
Our Children quotes by Paul Ryan
#39. If we don't make tough decisions today our children are going to have to make much, much tougher decisions tomorrow. #Quote by Paul Ryan
Our Children quotes by Jeff Schweitzer
#40. That we need help is easy to see every time we walk down the street.
The experts confirm what the obscured view in front of us tells us.
They estimate that 64% of adults in the United States are obese and
that this percentage is growing. Even our children are being affected,
as nearly every one in three American children under the age of 18
is overweight. #Quote by Jeff Schweitzer
Our Children quotes by Will Tuttle
#41. Now, knowing better, we can act better, we can live better, and give the animals, our children and ourselves a true reason for hope and celebration. #Quote by Will Tuttle
Our Children quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#42. It is important to understand, not intellectually but actually in your daily life, how you have built images about your wife, your husband, your neighbor, your child, your country, your leaders, your politicians, your gods-you have nothing but images. The images create the space between you and what you observe and in that space there is conflict, so what we are going to find out now together is whether it is possible to be free of the space we create, not only outside ourselves but in ourselves, the space which divides people in all their relationships ... #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Our Children quotes by Vimala McClure
#43. Tell the truth. Say what is happening. Allow what is, and allow it to be known. Bring your children up in a home that is clean and clear and honest. There is no greater legacy you can give them. #Quote by Vimala McClure
Our Children quotes by Hillary Clinton
#44. All of us have to recognize that we owe our children more than we have been giving them. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Our Children quotes by Tony Parsons
#45. I have this theory about divorce. I have a theory that is never a tragedy for adults and always a tragedy for children. Adults can lose weight, find someone nicer, get their life back. Divorce gives grown-ups a get-out-of-jail-free card. It is the children who pay the price, and pay it for the rest of their lives. But we can't admit that, all us scarred veterans of the divorce court, because it would mean admitting that we have inflicted wounds on our children that they will carry for the rest of their lives. #Quote by Tony Parsons
Our Children quotes by Ogden Nash
#46. Life has a tendency to obfuscate and bewilder, Such as fating us to spend the first part of our lives being embarrassed by our parents and the last part being embarrassed by our children. #Quote by Ogden Nash
Our Children quotes by Larry Tanner
#47. We parents are an extension of our children, not the other way around. We are their conscience until it becomes their responsibility to tell themselves what's right and necessary. We are their butlers until they are fully able to get the items they need and can clean up after themselves. We are their cheerleaders until they learn how to develop their own confidence and motivation. We are their counselors until they are able to take the lead in making the tough decisions that affect them. #Quote by Larry Tanner
Our Children quotes by Jodi Picoult
#48. There are legions of us, I realized. The mothers who have broken babies, and spend the rest of our lives wondering if we should have spared them. And the mothers who have let their broken babies go, who look at our children and see instead the faces of the ones they never met. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Our Children quotes by Bruce Springsteen
#49. We honor our parents by not accepting as the final equation the most troubling characteristics of our relationship. I decided between my father and me that the sum of our troubles would not be the summation of our lives together. In analysis, you work to turn the ghosts that haunt you into ancestors who accompany you. That takes hard work and a lot of love, but it's the way we lessen the burdens our children have to carry. #Quote by Bruce Springsteen
Our Children quotes by Jillian Barberie
#50. It is with great regret that my marriage to Grant is ending after more than six years. He is a special man and we have two amazing children together Ruby, 5, and son Rocco, 3. This was a mutual decision that was not taken lightly and we are committed to our children and will work together to ensure their happy and healthy upbringing. #Quote by Jillian Barberie
Our Children quotes by Warren Ellis
#51. On the evidence I have on hand at home, social media isn't killing our children. It isn't killing families, either, because the constant long bloody phone calls that parents complained to their teenagers about in decades past are gone. #Quote by Warren Ellis
Our Children quotes by James Krenov
#52. Fine things in wood are important, not only aesthetically, as oddities or rarities, but because we are becoming aware of the fact that much of our life is spent buying and discarding, and buying again, things that are not good. Some of us long to have at least something, somewhere, which will give us harmony and a sense of durability - I won't say permanence, but durability - things that, through the years, become more and more beautiful, things we can leave to our children. #Quote by James Krenov
Our Children quotes by Patricia Arquette
#53. Throughout history, the human species has struggled to some extent. It's part of us, as human beings, to provide better for our children and to try to do all these different things. The expectations have changed drastically, and thank God they have. Women have more rights, and women do have their own power in the world. #Quote by Patricia Arquette
Our Children quotes by Richard Gere
#54. It's human nature - we want to believe our children, our families, our President! #Quote by Richard Gere
Our Children quotes by Henry Demarest Lloyd
#55. The price of liberty is something more than eternal vigilance. There must also be eternal advance. We can save the rights we have inherited from our fathers only by winning new ones to bequeath our children. #Quote by Henry Demarest Lloyd
Our Children quotes by The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-day Saints
#56. And it came to pass that he rent his coat; and he took a piece thereof, and wrote upon it - In memory of our God, our religion, and freedom, and our peace, our wives, and our children - and he fastened it upon the end of a pole.
~Alma 46:12 #Quote by The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-day Saints
Our Children quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#57. We need to be raising our children for LIFE. Life is not a small system within 4 walls. Life is vast and wild. And once our children are out of school, that's where life really begins. Too many people are raising their children to conform to systems. And when they start life they will continue to simply conform to whatever system they find themselves inside of. And those are exactly the kinds of people who will never change the world. The only types of people who change this world, are the ones who think on their own, design their own lives, and create their own systems. Everybody else is just there for the train ride. Very few people are designing their own train tracks. Raise railway designers, stop raising commuters. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Our Children quotes by Paul A. Offit
#58. Your child can die from chickenpox. #Quote by Paul A. Offit
Our Children quotes by Max Brooks
#59. The living dead had taken more from us than land and loved ones. They'd robbed us of our confidence as the planet's dominant life form. We were a shaken, broken species, driven to the edge of extinction and grateful only for tomorrow with perhaps a little less suffering than today. Was this the legacy we would leave our children, a level of anxiety and self-doubt not seen since our simian ancestors cowered in the tallest trees? What kind of world would they rebuild? Would they rebuild at all? Could they continue to progress, knowing that they would be powerless to reclaim their future? And what if that future saw another rise of the living dead? Would our descendants rise to meet them in battle, or simply crumple in meek surrender and accept what they believe to be their inevitable extinction? For this alone, we had to reclaim our planet. We had to prove to ourselves that we could do it, and leave that proof as this war's greatest monument. The long, hard road back to humanity, or the regressive ennui of Earth's once-proud primates. That was the choice, and it had to be made now. #Quote by Max Brooks
Our Children quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#60. To teach our children is a personal duty; we cannot delegate it to Sunday School Teachers, or other friendly aids, these can assist us, but cannot deliver us from the sacred obligation; #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Our Children quotes by Marcel Proust
#61. No days, perhaps, of all our childhood are ever so fully lived are those that we had regarded as not being lived at all: days spent wholly with a favourite book. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Our Children quotes by Craig Biggio
#62. We guided our children. We supported them. We were there for them. But once you start going through your list of schools that present a potential opportunity, a young man or a young woman has to be happy with their decision. If they are unhappy, then their whole four years of college are going to be some of the most miserable memories of their lifetime. #Quote by Craig Biggio
Our Children quotes by Jodi Picoult
#63. And that was the greatest heartbreak of all- no matter how spectacular we want our children to be, no matter how perfect we pretend they are, they are bound to disappoint. As it turns out, kids are more like us than we think: damaged, through and through. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Our Children quotes by John Updike
#64. And there was, in those Ipswich years, for me at least, a raw educational component; though I used to score well in academic tests, I seemed to know very little of how the world worked and was truly grateful for instruction, whether it was how to stroke a backhand, mix a martini, use a wallpaper steamer, or do the Twist. My wife, too, seemed willing to learn. Old as we must have looked to our children, we were still taking lessons, in how to be grown-up. #Quote by John Updike
Our Children quotes by Paul Tsongas
#65. Journey with me to a true commitment to our environment. Journey with me to the serenity of leaving to our children a planet in equilibrium. #Quote by Paul Tsongas
Our Children quotes by Neil Gordon
#66. And yet now, after all these years, I find that it doesn't matter whether I filmed it or not, because we lose our children not once but over and over again. That loss, I can feel it now, yesterday, tomorrow, every minute, and I promise you, I do. #Quote by Neil Gordon
Our Children quotes by Rob Reiner
#67. I know how sobering and exhausting parenthood is. But the reality is that our children's future depends on us as parents. Because we know that the first years truly last forever. #Quote by Rob Reiner
Our Children quotes by Denis Waitley
#68. Be a role model not a critic. Don't tell your children, your peers, or your subordinates what to do - show them. And when the lesson is over, keep showing them by demonstrating that your actions are part of your character, not part of their curriculum. #Quote by Denis Waitley
Our Children quotes by Janet Parshall
#69. As the mother of six, Karen Santorum knows the power of stories to shape and mold the nature of our children. In Everyday Graces, Karen has complied a treasure chest of tales that helps us raise the next generation of children into adults of kind compassion. Everyday Graces is a must for families that desire their children to become people of character. #Quote by Janet Parshall
Our Children quotes by Polly Berrien Berends
#70. We cannot spare our children the influence of harmful values by turning off the television any more than we can keep them home forever or revamp the world before they get there. Merely keeping them in the dark is no protection and, in fact, can make them vulnerable and immature. #Quote by Polly Berrien Berends
Our Children quotes by Marco Rubio
#71. We must educate and train our children to compete and succeed in the 21st century. Our kids are not going to grow up to compete with children in Alabama or Mississippi. They're going to grow up to compete with kids in India, and China, all over the world; children who are learning to compete and succeed in the 21st century themselves. #Quote by Marco Rubio
Our Children quotes by Elizabeth Berg
#72. Well, most women are full to the brim, that's all ... We are, most of us, ready to explode, especially when our children are small and we are so weary with the demands for love and attention and the kind of service that makes you feel you should be wearing a uniform with "Mommy" embroidered over the left breast, over the heart ... If a stranger had come up to me and said, "Do you want to talk about it? I have time to listen," I think I might have burst into tears at the relief of it. #Quote by Elizabeth Berg
Our Children quotes by Barbara Coloroso
#73. When we use punishment, our children are robbed of the opportunity to develop their own inner discipline-the ability to act with integrity, wisdom, compassion, and mercy when there is no external force holding them accountable for what they do. #Quote by Barbara Coloroso
Our Children quotes by Jimmy Carter
#74. The erosion of our confidence in the future is threating to destroy the Social and the Political fabric of America. The confidence that we have always had as a people, is not simply some romantic dream, or a proverb in a dusty book, that we read, just on the Fourth of July. It is the idea of which founded our nation and has guided us in our development as a people. Confidence in the future has supported everything else. We've always believed in a thing called, progress. We've always had a faith, that the days of our children, would be better than our own. Our people are losing that faith. For the first time in the history of our country, a majority of our people believe, that the next five years, will be worse than the past five years. We were taught that our armies were always invincible and our causes were always just, only to suffer the agony of Vietnam. We respected the presidency as a place of honor, until the shock of Watergate. We've got to stop crying and start sweating. Stop talking and start walking. Working together, with our common faith, we cannot fail. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Our Children quotes by Mark Matlock
#75. We must abandon the goals of perfect obedience and untainted innocence and begin to equip our children to see their place in God's family, their need for his grace, and their opportunity to embrace his mission. #Quote by Mark Matlock
Our Children quotes by Bono
#76. Every age has its massive moral blind spots. We might not see them, but our children will. #Quote by Bono
Our Children quotes by Henry D. Moyle
#77. The whole process of raising a family is one of perfecting our own lives. That which we transmit consciously and unconsciously to our children in their rearing in the home and in the community must be the best within us. #Quote by Henry D. Moyle
Our Children quotes by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
#78. It would be against God's character to give us a promise that our children will be saved if we raise them in a certain way. That would mean that he was telling us to trust in something other than Christ and his grace and mercy. #Quote by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
Our Children quotes by Barack Obama
#79. In addition to giving our children the science and math skills they need to compete in the new global context, we should also encourage the ability to think creatively that comes from a meaningful arts education. #Quote by Barack Obama
Our Children quotes by Michelle Obama
#80. At this point, I'd been First Lady for just over two months. In different moments, I'd felt overwhelmed by the pace, unworthy of the glamour, anxious about our children, and uncertain of my purpose. There are pieces of public life, of giving up one's privacy to become a walking, talking symbol of a nation, that can seem specifically designed to strip away part of your identity. But here, finally, speaking to those girls, I felt something completely different and pure - an alignment of my old self with this new role. Are you good enough? Yes, you are, all of you. I told the students of Elizabeth Garrett Anderson that they'd touched my heart. I told them that they were precious, because they truly were. And when my talk was over, I did what was instinctive. I hugged absolutely every single girl I could reach. #Quote by Michelle Obama
Our Children quotes by Jane D. Hull
#81. We improved the environment in which our children live, learn and play by decreasing crime and clamping down on abuse and violence in the home and on the streets. #Quote by Jane D. Hull
Our Children quotes by Richie Sambora
#82. There's nothing like a love for our children. I love being a papa, and that's the truth. #Quote by Richie Sambora
Our Children quotes by Edward Davey
#83. In reality, those who deny climate change and demand a halt to emissions reduction and mitigation work, want us to take a huge gamble with the future of every human being on the planet, every future human being, our children and grand children, and every other living species #Quote by Edward Davey
Our Children quotes by Patrick Pearse
#84. You cannot conquer Ireland. You cannot extinguish the Irish passion for freedom. If our deed has not been sufficient to win freedom, then our children will win by a better deed. #Quote by Patrick Pearse
Our Children quotes by Manas Swain
#85. To understand the Universe, we must guide our children and children of children to keep exploring the history because one life is not enough to understand the Universe. The beginning of our life lies in the history only. #Quote by Manas Swain
Our Children quotes by Jon Kabat-Zinn
#86. The importance of the development of the emotional body is hardly recognized today. We are pretty much left to our own devices to come to full adulthood, whether man or woman. Our elders may have become so denatured themselves from a lack of such nurturance that there is no longer a collective knowledge of how to guide the awakening emotional vitality and authenticity of our young people, our children. Mindfulness may contribute to a reawakening of this ancient wisdom in ourselves and in others. #Quote by Jon Kabat-Zinn
Our Children quotes by Duane G. Carey
#87. And, that's what I truly believe that we're doing when we're advancing scientific knowledge is we're someday making the world better. Not only for our children, but for all people after that. #Quote by Duane G. Carey
Our Children quotes by Major Owens
#88. We hope that the elected officials will respond positively to a ground swell of letters, phone calls, e-mails and visits from parents. The law clearly states that the responsibility for giving a sound basic education to our children lies with New York State. #Quote by Major Owens
Our Children quotes by Ernest L. Boyer
#89. Art is humanity's most essential, most universal language. It is not a frill, but a necessary part of communication. The quality of civilization can be measured through its music, dance, drama, architecture, visual art and literature. We must give our children knowledge and understanding of civilization's most profound works. #Quote by Ernest L. Boyer
Our Children quotes by Glennon Doyle Melton
#90. We need to be Atticus. Hands in our pockets. Calm. Believing. So that our children will look at us and even with a fire raging in front of them, they'll say, "Huh. Guess it's not time to worry yet." Then we'll watch carefully. We'll just watch and wait and believe until God nods and says, "It's time. Tear open that gift, Mama. #Quote by Glennon Doyle Melton
Our Children quotes by R.D. Laing
#91. A child born today in the United Kingdom stands a ten times greater chance of being admitted to a mental hospital than to a university ... This can be taken as an indication that we are driving our children mad more effectively than we are genuinely educating them. Perhaps it is our way of educating them that is driving them mad. #Quote by R.D. Laing
Our Children quotes by Julie Ann Barnhill
#92. No mom has it all together. We're all dealing with loose ends when it comes to motherhood and our children. Some of us are just better at keeping up appearances, that's all. #Quote by Julie Ann Barnhill
Our Children quotes by Harvey Cox
#93. There is scarcely one figure in the entire Hebrew scripture we would want our children to emulate. #Quote by Harvey Cox
Our Children quotes by Laurie Halse Anderson
#94. (From the Q&A with the author at the end of the book.)
Have any readers ever asked questions that shocked you?
I have gotten one question repeatedly from young men. These are guys who liked the book, but they are honestly confused. They ask me why Melinda was so upset about being raped.

The first dozen times I heard this, I was horrified. But I heard it over and over again. I realized that many young men are not being taught the impact that sexual assault has on a woman. They are inundated by sexual imagery in the media, and often come to the (incorrect) conclusion that having sex is not a big deal. This, no doubt, is why the number of sexual assaults is so high.

I am also shocked by adults who feel that rape is an inappropriate topic to discuss with teenagers. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, 44 percent of rape victims are under the age of 18 and 46 percent of those victims are between the ages of 12-15. It makes adults uncomfortable to acknowledge this, but our inability to speak clearly and openly about sexual issues endangers our children. It is immoral not to discuss this with them. #Quote by Laurie Halse Anderson
Our Children quotes by Michelle Obama
#95. What I admire most about Hillary is that she never buckles under pressure. She never takes the easy way out. And Hillary Clinton has never quit on anything in her life. And when I think about the kind of president that I want for my girls and all our children, that's what I want. #Quote by Michelle Obama
Our Children quotes by Sharan Burrow
#96. Our children will work in energy tomorrow - they just won't work in fossil fuels, in the meantime, for social justice, economic justice and stability, we need ... negotiated, planned outcomes that people can touch at both the national and industry and enterprise level. #Quote by Sharan Burrow
Our Children quotes by Joyce Maynard
#97. It's not only children who grow. Parents do too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can't tell my children to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it, myself. #Quote by Joyce Maynard
Our Children quotes by Randy Alcorn
#98. God doesn't make us rich so we can indulge ourselves and spoil our children, or so we can insulate ourselves form needing God's provision. God gives us abundant material blessing so that we can give it away, and give it generously. #Quote by Randy Alcorn
Our Children quotes by Rita Dove
#99. If our children are unable to voice what they mean, no one will know how they feel. If they can't imagine a different world, they are stumbling through a darkness made all the more sinister by its lack of reference points. For a young person growing up in America's alienated neighborhoods, there can be no greater empowerment than to dare to speak from the heart - and then to discover that one is not alone in ones feelings. #Quote by Rita Dove
Our Children quotes by Newt Gingrich
#100. If you import a commercial quantity of illegal drugs ... it is because you have made the personal decision that you are prepared to get rich by destroying our children. I have made the decision that I love our children enough that we will kill you if you do this. #Quote by Newt Gingrich
Our Children quotes by Narendra Modi
#101. Importance of technology is increasing every day, we must not deprive our children of technology, if we do then it's a social crime. #Quote by Narendra Modi
Our Children quotes by T.D. Jakes
#102. How can we teach our children to respect Black women if Black women don't respect Black women? #Quote by T.D. Jakes
Our Children quotes by Chief Seattle
#103. Will you teach your children what we have taught our children? That the earth is our mother? What befalls the earth befalls all the sons of the earth. This we know: the earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself. One thing we know: our god is also your god. The earth is precious to him and to harm the earth is to heap contempt on its creator. #Quote by Chief Seattle
Our Children quotes by Grayson L. Kirk
#104. Our greatest obligation to our children is to prepare them to understand and to deal effectively with the world in which they will live and not with the world we have known or the world we would prefer to have. #Quote by Grayson L. Kirk
Our Children quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#105. The whole commerce between master and slave is a perpetual exercise of the most boisterous passions, the most unremitting despotism on the one part, and degrading subjugation on the other. Our children see this, and learn to imitate it: for man is an imitative animal. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Our Children quotes by Kristine Carlson
#106. Your children are your legacy to the world. As you raise them with love, you contribute to making this world a better place. #Quote by Kristine Carlson
Our Children quotes by Brene Brown
#107. Perfectionism never happens in a vacuum. It touches everyone around us. We pass it down to our children, we infect our workplace with impossible expectations, and it's suffocating for our friends and families. Thankfully, compassion also spreads quickly. When we're kind to ourselves, we create a reservoir of compassion that we can extend to others. #Quote by Brene Brown
Our Children quotes by Scarlett Johansson
#108. I feel like in 10 or 15 years' time our children are going to look back and say, 'What? You were around when gay people weren't allowed to get married?' #Quote by Scarlett Johansson
Our Children quotes by Kamala Harris
#109. My daily challenge to myself is to be part of the solution, to be a joyful warrior in the battle to come. My challenge to you is to join that effort. To stand up for our ideals and our values. Let's not throw up our hands when it's time to roll up our sleeves. Not now. Not tomorrow. Not ever.

Years from now, our children and our grandchildren will look up and lock eyes with us. They will ask us where we were when the stakes were so high. They will ask us what it was like. I don't want us to just tell them how we felt. I want us to tell them what we did. #Quote by Kamala Harris
Our Children quotes by Franklin D. Roosevelt
#110. Our national debt after all is an internal debt owed not only by the Nation but to the Nation. If our children have to pay interest on it they will pay that interest to themselves. A reasonable internal debt will not impoverish our children or put the Nation into bankruptcy. #Quote by Franklin D. Roosevelt
Our Children quotes by Steph Cook
#111. Our children are the cement of life, its up to us to make the foundation of the future! #Quote by Steph Cook
Our Children quotes by Charles Kennedy
#112. New Labour needs to realise that family life and the way we raise our children are private matters. #Quote by Charles Kennedy
Our Children quotes by Salma Hayek
#113. You want to do movies that your children can watch, and that your children can have fun at and enjoy the experience of shooting. #Quote by Salma Hayek
Our Children quotes by Dillon Burroughs
#114. Let us live not only to serve God ourselves; let us live to help our children and their children live for God. #Quote by Dillon Burroughs
Our Children quotes by Nancy Samalin
#115. Unchecked expressions of anger often lead to our making negative statements that communicate to our children that we think they are unlovable. #Quote by Nancy Samalin
Our Children quotes by Amor Towles
#116. Perhaps it is a matter of celestial balance," he reflected. "A sort of cosmic equilibrium. Perhaps the aggregate experience of Time is a constant and thus for our children to establish such vivid impressions of this particular June, we must relinquish our claims upon it." "So that they might remember, we must forget," Vasily summed up. #Quote by Amor Towles
Our Children quotes by George Voinovich
#117. I do not want our children and grandchildren to live in a world where everyday they fear some regional strongman with weapons of mass destruction. We need to send a message to these future would-be bullies: you will not be allowed to threaten the world. #Quote by George Voinovich
Our Children quotes by John Dolan
#118. Our children form a large part of our Immortality Project. This is one of the reasons a child's death cuts so deep; some of the future dies with them. Through them and their descendants, part of us lives on forever, just as it does in the friends we touch and the ripples our actions cause in the world. All these effects are conscripts, earthwork defences against the finality of extinction. #Quote by John Dolan
Our Children quotes by Tony Dovale
#119. REAL Entrepreneurs will be the one's who change the world for the better.
Governments must become PUBLIC servants to create the best context and mindsets for people to succeed. We need to ReThink Entrepreneurial success and the role of Public Service in supporting that ... or we, and our children, will pay the ultimate price. #Quote by Tony Dovale
Our Children quotes by Megyn Kelly
#120. But of course, as with anything along those lines, there are limits to that refreshment. Someone can tell it like is and then drop the N-word on you, and suddenly you're not feeling refreshed any long; you're feeling offended. I'm no lover of being overly PC, but there is a limit on how far the overconnection to that can go. You can't justify everything that way. We still want to live within the bounds of decency with one another, so I hope--especially when choosing our leaders, whose behavior should inspire us and may be modeled by our children. They should be held to a higher standard. #Quote by Megyn Kelly
Our Children quotes by Sebastiao Salgado
#121. The problem is, we live in a society where all that interests us is power and money. So we don't have any interest in our children, and what we leave for our children is not important. #Quote by Sebastiao Salgado
Our Children quotes by Bruno Bettelheim
#122. Parents ought, through their own behavior and the values by which they live, to provide direction for their children. But they need to rid themselves of the idea that there are surefire methods which, when well applied, will produce certain predictable results. Whatever we do with and for our children ought to flow from our understanding of and our feelings for the particular situation and the relation we wish to exist between us and our child. #Quote by Bruno Bettelheim
Our Children quotes by Earl Nightingale
#123. Everything in the world we want to do or get done, we must do with and through people. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Our Children quotes by Susan George
#124. Having enough to eat, being able to educate your children, have reasonably stable employment, and being able to live in a society which isn't collapsing around you-all of these things have been generally eroded. #Quote by Susan George
Our Children quotes by Neil Kurshan
#125. Walk a mile in my shoes is good advice. Our children will learn to respect others if they are used to imagining themselves in another's place. #Quote by Neil Kurshan
Our Children quotes by Michael Gove
#126. Children themselves know they are being cheated. Ultimately we owe it to our children. They are in school for 190 days a year. Every moment they spend learning is precious. If a year goes by and they are not being stretched and excited, that blights their life. #Quote by Michael Gove
Our Children quotes by Lewis Gordon
#127. If we pass on an unsustainable environment to our children we have failed them. #Quote by Lewis Gordon
Our Children quotes by Bill Moyers
#128. How can those of us who are parents help our children recognize their bliss? #Quote by Bill Moyers
Our Children quotes by Brooke Hampton
#129. Speak to them as if you were on stage in front of thousands of people. Respond to them with the respect they deserve. They are our future. Guard your tongue. Be brave enough to try harder.
Let's create a childhood that our children won't have to recover from. #Quote by Brooke Hampton
Our Children quotes by Ezra Taft Benson
#130. Mothers, take time to be a real friend to your children. Listen to your children, really listen. Talk with them, laugh and joke with them, sing with them, cry with them, hug them, honestly praise them. Yes, regularly spend unused one-on-one time with each child. Be a real friend to your children. #Quote by Ezra Taft Benson
Our Children quotes by Claire Fontaine
#131. Sometimes, we have to give birth to our children twice ... Once your child becomes the "garbage" other parents are afraid of, you never look at any teen, or yourself, the same again. All you see is the child they once were. #Quote by Claire Fontaine
Our Children quotes by Bruno Walter
#132. There is no task of greater importance than to give our children the very best preparation for the demands of an ominous future, a preparation which aims at the methodical cultivation of their spiritual and their moral gifts. As long as the exemplary work of the Waldorf School Movement continues to spread its influence as it has done over the past decades, we can all look forward with hope. I am sure that Rudolf Steiner's work for children must be considered a central contribution to the twentieth century and I feel it deserves the support of all freedom-loving thinking people. #Quote by Bruno Walter
Our Children quotes by Laurie Frankel
#133. Oh the things that hide secretly in our children, lying in wait, doing untold damage, yearning to be free. Alarming us beyond all measure. #Quote by Laurie Frankel
Our Children quotes by Richard Dawkins
#134. No matter how much knowledge and wisdom you acquire during your life, not one jot will be passed on to your children by genetic means. Each new generation starts from scratch. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Our Children quotes by Neil Gaiman
#135. Or to put it another way, our children and our grandchildren are less literate and less numerate than we are. They are less able to navigate the world, to understand it to solve problems. They can be more easily lied to and misled, will be less able to change the world in which they find themselves, be less employable. All of these things. And as a country, England will fall behind other developed nations because it will lack a skilled workforce. And while politicians blame the other party for these results, the truth is, we need to teach our children to read and to enjoy reading. We #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Our Children quotes by Benjamin Watson
#136. When we look at our children, I think a lot of the troubles we're having as a society is because we don't have strong fathers in these families that can tell their kids that they can do more. #Quote by Benjamin Watson
Our Children quotes by Kofi Annan
#137. To look into some aspects of the future, we do not need projections by supercomputers. Much of the next millennium can be seen in how we care for our children today. Tomorrow's world may be influenced by science and technology, but more than anything, it is already taking shape in the bodies and minds of our children. #Quote by Kofi Annan
Our Children quotes by Steve Irwin
#138. I want the cleanest water, the freshest air and wildlife in abundance ... but most of all I want a future for our children. #Quote by Steve Irwin
Our Children quotes by Jonathan Jansen
#139. Desperation is an emotion I seldom feel, except in relation to education, for I believe very deeply that for most of our children, a solid school education represents the only means available for ending the cycle of family poverty. Skills come later. Economic growth even later. Social cohesion lies far in the distance. What matters is that children complete 12 years of schooling with the ability to read, write, reason, calculate and express confidence for purposes of further studies, skills training and higher education. #Quote by Jonathan Jansen
Our Children quotes by R.C. Sproul Jr.
#140. Thinking that education is something different from discipling our children is a sure sign that we have been 'educated' by the state. Education is discipleship. #Quote by R.C. Sproul Jr.
Our Children quotes by Howard W. Hunter
#141. Earn the respect and confidence of your children through your loving relationship with them. A righteous father protects his children with his time and presence in their social, educational, and spiritual activities and responsibilities. #Quote by Howard W. Hunter
Our Children quotes by Tsh Oxenreider
#142. A home that nourishes life embraces the little moments and appreciates the rhythmic seasons of life, including the time necessary to cook real food from scratch...It doesn't have to take too much time, however, with efficient menu planning and wisely planned trips to the grocery store and farmers' market.
The payoffs are astronomical - better health, good stewardship of our environment, and setting a good example for our children are just a few of the benefits. It also fosters an appreciation of the ebbs and flows of seasons because you'll be using fresh ingredients that are more readily available (and of higher quality) when they are in season. If you feel too busy to cook from scratch, then I argue that you're too busy, period. Reevaluate your priorities and commitments. If you want to live a healthy, long life and to pass the same luxury on to your children, then you MUST take the time to cook real food #Quote by Tsh Oxenreider
Our Children quotes by Ruth Ann Minner
#143. Our promise to our children should be this: if you do well in school, we will pay for you to obtain a college degree. #Quote by Ruth Ann Minner
Our Children quotes by Sol M. Linowitz
#144. We will not find security for ourselves if we are estranged from the other people of this world and alienated from them and their cultures. We will not find peace for ourselves and our children by continuing to ignore other people and by arrogantly insisting that the rest of the world must learn from us what we are willing to teach and must speak to us only in our tongue. #Quote by Sol M. Linowitz
Our Children quotes by Linda Ronstadt
#145. We wanted to sing about the passions of mature women: love and concern for our children, love between trusted and treasured friends, the precariousness of romantic love, the difference between the love you give to the living and the love you give to the dead, the bitterness of a lost love remembered, and the long, steady love you keep for good. #Quote by Linda Ronstadt
Our Children quotes by Georgia Cates
#146. I take you to be my best friend, my lover, my husband, and the father of our children. I will cherish our union and love you more each day than I did the day before. I will trust you and respect
you, laugh with you and cry with you, loving you faithfully through good times and bad, regardless of the obstacles we may face together. I give you my hand, my heart, and my love from this day forward, for as long as we both shall live. You will always be every song I sing. #Quote by Georgia Cates
Our Children quotes by Paul Wellstone
#147. We're not going to have real security until we invest in our children. #Quote by Paul Wellstone
Our Children quotes by Shakira
#148. I'm a firm believer that education is the most efficient tool we have to make people aware and make our children aware, and to protect them from the scourge of the century, which is AIDS #Quote by Shakira
Our Children quotes by Ruth   Mitchell
#149. The lessons we learn from our parents are profound, but the lessons we learn from our children are even greater. #Quote by Ruth Mitchell
Our Children quotes by Matt Cartwright
#150. Nutrition isn't the only problem; our children also aren't getting enough exercise. #Quote by Matt Cartwright
Our Children quotes by Charles F. Boyd
#151. Too often we assume that what is "best" means that our children should live their lives according to the script that has worked for us. Without realizing it, we try to create carbon copies of ourselves. #Quote by Charles F. Boyd
Our Children quotes by Jeffrey R. Holland
#152. Our children take their flight into the future with our thrust and with our aim. And even as we anxiously watch that arrow in flight and know all the evils that can deflect its course after is has left our hand, nevertheless we take courage in remembering that the most important factor in determining that arrow's destination will be the stability, strength, and unwavering certainty of the holder of the bow. #Quote by Jeffrey R. Holland
Our Children quotes by Warren Farrell
#153. By starving our children of men, we have made them more vulnerable to the very abuse we are trying to prevent. #Quote by Warren Farrell
Our Children quotes by Edmund White
#154. In our imaginations the adults of our childhood remain extreme, essential - we might say radical since they are the roots that fed luxuriant later systems. Those first bohemians, for instance, stay operatic in memory even though were we to meet them today - well, what would we think, we who've elaborated our eccentricities with a patience, a professionalism they never knew? #Quote by Edmund White
Our Children quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#155. Our childhood had passed over into history overnight. The transition was unnoticed by anyone but ourselves. #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Our Children quotes by Avijeet Das
#156. Kuch Meetha Ho Jaaye
(Let's Have Something Sweet)

So we drew borders on our own land,
And kept a distance from our own brothers,
And we differentiated each other
by the color of our skin,
And by the different religions:
A Muslim, A Christian, A Sikh, A Hindu,

And in the end,
It just did not matter,

For we were meant to
Love each other and live happily
Honoring our ancestors,
Nurturing our children

Having rainbow colored dreams
And chocolate celebrations!
Kuch Meetha ho jaaye! #Quote by Avijeet Das
Our Children quotes by Jim Hunt
#157. Who knows what technology will emerge in the next five years, let alone 20. Yet the education we provide our children now is supposed to last for decades. We cannot train them for jobs that do not even exist yet, but we can provide them with the minds and tools they'll need to adapt to our ever-changing set of circumstances. #Quote by Jim Hunt
Our Children quotes by Jojo Moyes
#158. I'd like to hope you end up a miserable, lonely woman. But actually, I hope you have children one day, Ellie Haworth. Then you'll know how it feels to be vulnerable. And to have to fight, to be constantly vigilant, just to make sure your children get to grow up with a father. #Quote by Jojo Moyes
Our Children quotes by Ruby Bridges
#159. My message is really that racism has no place in the hearts and minds of our children. #Quote by Ruby Bridges
Our Children quotes by Muffy Mead-Ferro
#160. I wonder if we're giving our children the chance to really perform, if we're giving them and ourselves enough credit, as we pore over our parenting magazines and reference manuals. I wonder if we're getting in the way rather than out of the way, as we get sucked into the trap of competing with other parents to raise the most exceptional child. #Quote by Muffy Mead-Ferro
Our Children quotes by Bernard Cornwell
#161. I tell my grandchildren that confidence wins battles. I do not wish them to fight, I would rather make Ieremias's world a reality and so live in harmony, but there is always some man, and it is usually a man, who looks with envy on our fields, who wants our home, who thinks his rancid god is better than ours, who will come with flame and sword and steel to take what we have built and make it his, and if we are not ready to fight, if we have not spent those tedious hours learning the craft of sword and shield and spear and seax, then that man will win and we will die. Our children will be slaves, our wives whores, and our cattle slaughtered. So we must fight, and the man who fights with confidence wins. #Quote by Bernard Cornwell
Our Children quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#162. My friends, we cannot win the respect of the white people of the South or elsewhere if we are willing to trade the future of our children for our personal safety or comfort. Moreover, we must learn that passively to accept an unjust system is to cooperate with that system, and thereby to become a participant in its evil ... 'Put up thy sword. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Our Children quotes by Raquel Cepeda
#163. I have never bought into the idea that blood is thicker than water. Love and respect are meant to be earned from our children, our spouses, our families, and our friends. #Quote by Raquel Cepeda
Our Children quotes by Michael Jackson
#164. I want to do something to help those who lost their parents, who lost their mothers and their fathers. Those are our people. Those are our children. Those are our parents. #Quote by Michael Jackson
Our Children quotes by George W. Bush
#165. Laura and I really don't realize how bright our children is sometimes until we get an objective analysis. #Quote by George W. Bush
Our Children quotes by John Shadegg
#166. But with a rate of return of 1.6 percent or less, or a negative rate of return, our children and our grandchildren, if we do not make changes, will in fact not have a secure retirement. Indeed, they will not have the funds when they go to retire to even minimally get by. #Quote by John Shadegg
Our Children quotes by Graca Machel
#167. Recent events have shown us that we are a single, interdependent world. But the burden of any world crisis falls most heavily on the developing countries and on their peoples. And everything that we have learnt tells us that it is the children who will be feeling the harshest and the most permanent effects. Can we therefore claim in all earnestness to love our children--the children of the North and the South--if we do not give the most serious attention to preventing a world that has more than enough resources from dividing ever more deeply between rich and poor? #Quote by Graca Machel
Our Children quotes by Patricia Arquette
#168. Television allows you to actually make a living, feed your children, send them to college and important significant things. To have the ability, the luxury, to make the choices of doing little movies where people cannot pay you. #Quote by Patricia Arquette
Our Children quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#169. We find ourselves more taken with the running up and down, the games, and puerile simplicities of our children, than we do, afterward, with their most complete actions; as if we had loved them for our sport, like monkeys, and not as men. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Our Children quotes by Walter Isaacson
#170. He had an imagination so excitable that it flirted with the edges of fantasy, which is also something we can try to preserve in ourselves and indulge in our children. #Quote by Walter Isaacson
Our Children quotes by Debasish Mridha
#171. We like to see our future through our children; they are the reflection of the best of ourselves. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Our Children quotes by Maggie Gallagher

Our Children quotes by Marc Forne Molne

Our Children quotes by Daniel Quinn
#174. Has it ever occurred to you to wonder if the history we teach our children is a lie? #Quote by Daniel Quinn
Our Children quotes by Mallory Ortberg
#175. A child is not a bargaining chip or a learning tool. Your focus, if you adopt a child of a different race, should be on nurturing and protecting your child from bigotry, not deploying him or her as an anti-racist Mr. Fix-It. #Quote by Mallory Ortberg
Our Children quotes by Billy Graham
#176. Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable. We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free. Amen! #Quote by Billy Graham
Our Children quotes by Ann Romney
#177. I said tonight I wanted to talk to you about love. Look into your hearts. This is our country. This is our future. These are our children and grandchildren. You can trust Mitt. #Quote by Ann Romney
Our Children quotes by Hugh Mackay
#178. Some researchers sensibly suggest that rather than worrying too much about which programs our children are watching, we should concentrate on trying to reduce the total amount of time they spend in front of the screen. #Quote by Hugh Mackay
Our Children quotes by Wangari Maathai
#179. Sometimes when I talk to little children I remind them of the fact that when I was growing up myself, I used to play with frog eggs and tadpoles and I used to walk in the field, I used to literally copy whatever my mother was doing on the land. And that may be the reason why I eventually developed the passion for green and for the Earth. So it is extremely important for adults and especially those who are in charge of cities to make sure that we do not lose touch with the land and with the environment. And especially our children. #Quote by Wangari Maathai
Our Children quotes by George Eliot
#180. Ah, my child, you will have real troubles to fret about by and by," is the consolation we have almost all of us had administered to us in our childhood, and have repeated to other children since we have been grown up. We have all of us sobbed so piteously, standing with tiny bare legs above our little socks, when we lost sight of our mother or nurse in some strange place; but we can no longer recall the poignancy of that moment and weep over it, as we do over the remembered sufferings of five or ten years ago. Every one of those keen moments has left its trace, and lives in us still, but such traces have blent themselves irrecoverably with the firmer texture of our youth and manhood; and so it comes that we can look on at the troubles of our children with a smiling disbelief in the reality of their pain. Is there any one who can recover the experience of his childhood, not merely with a memory _of_ what he did and what happened to him, of what he liked and disliked when he was in frock and trousers, but with an intimate penetration, a revived consciousness of what he felt then, when it was so long from one Midsummer to another; what he felt when his school fellows shut him out of their game because he would pitch the ball wrong out of mere wilfulness; or on a rainy day in the holidays, when he didn't know how to amuse himself, and fell from idleness into mischief, from mischief into defiance, and from defiance into sulkiness; or when his mother absolutely refused to let him h #Quote by George Eliot
Our Children quotes by Michael Braccia
#181. Today, with tears in my eyes, I telephoned the mother of one of our children (aged thirteen) who had spoken for the first time since the age of three... #Quote by Michael Braccia
Our Children quotes by Patrisse Khan-Cullors
#182. At some point, sisters began to talk about how unseen they have felt. How the media has focused on men, but it has been them - the sisters - who were there. They were there, in overwhelming numbers, just as they were during the civil rights movement.

Women - all women, trans women - are roughly 80% of the people who were staring down the terror of Ferguson, saying "we are the caretakers of this community". Is it women who are out there, often with their children, calling for an end to police violence, saying "we have a right to raise our children without fear".

But it is not women's courage that is showcased in the media. One sister says "when the police move in we do not run, we stay. And for this, we deserve recognition". Their words will live with us, will live in us, as Ferguson begins to unfold and as the national attention begins to really focus on what Alicia, Opal and I have started.

The first time there's coverage of Black Lives Matter in a way that is positive is on the Melissa Harris-Perry show. She does not invite us - it isn't intentional, I'm certain of that. And about a year later she does, but in this early moment, and despite the overwhelming knowledge of the people on the ground who are talking about what Alicia, Opal and I have done, and despite of it being part of the historical record, that it is always women who do the work even as men get the praise. It takes a long time for us to occur to most reporters and the mains #Quote by Patrisse Khan-Cullors
Our Children quotes by Graham Harman
#183. To create something does not mean to see through to its depths; we do not drain our children to the dregs by begetting them, but set them loose in the world like wild dogs, beyond our control and often beyond our knowledge. #Quote by Graham Harman
Our Children quotes by Adrienne Rich
#184. In a world dominated by violent and passive-aggressive men, and by male institutions dispensing violence, it is extraordinary to note how often women are represented as the perpetrators of violence, most of all when we are simply fighting in self-defense or for our children, or when we collectively attempt to change the institutions that are making war on us and our children. #Quote by Adrienne Rich
Our Children quotes by Michael Medved
#185. Unfortunately our children today seem to spend less and less time with their overworked parents, and so they draw more information about the world from the images on movie and TV screens. The true power of the media is the ability to redefine reality, to alter our expectations about what constitutes normal life. TV and the movies have abused that power by advancing the notion that wholesome, ordinary happiness is impossible. #Quote by Michael Medved
Our Children quotes by Alfie Kohn
#186. Thomas Gordon said it well: "Children sometimes know better than parents when they are sleepy or hungry; know better the qualities of their friends, their own aspirations and goals, how their various teachers treat them; know better the urges and needs within their bodies, whom they love and whom they don't, what they value and what they don't."4 In any case, we can't always assume that because we're more mature we necessarily have more insight into our children than they have into themselves. #Quote by Alfie Kohn
Our Children quotes by Bill Maher
#187. NEW RULE: 'Kidiots' Leave the children behind. At least until they learn something. A new study has shown that half of American high schools agree that newspapers should only be able to publish government-approved material. Almost one out of five said people should not be allowed to voice unpopular opinions..This is the first generation after September 11th, who discovered news during a 'watch what you say' administration ... George W. Bush once asked, 'is our children learning.' No, they isn't. A better question would be, 'is our teacher's teaching? #Quote by Bill Maher
Our Children quotes by Glennon Doyle
#188. We tell our children that brave means feeling afraid and doing it anyway, but is this the definition we want them to carry as they grow older? ... Brave does not mean feeling afraid and doing it anyway.

Brave means living from the inside out. Brave means, in every uncertain moment, turning inward, feeling for the Knowing, and speaking it out loud. #Quote by Glennon Doyle
Our Children quotes by Rachel Naomi Remen
#189. Chances are that any helpful two-year-old will break some eggs. We are often not very good at things when we are new. But there may be an important choice to make at such moments. Do we support and protect the innate wish to be of help to others in our children, or do we protect the eggs? Hard as it seems, the greater mother wisdom may lie in a willingness to clean up broken eggs or replace a mitten and a box of crayons. #Quote by Rachel Naomi Remen
Our Children quotes by Billy Graham
#190. I missed the joy of seeing our children grow and change. I thank God for watching over them during those years. #Quote by Billy Graham
Our Children quotes by Ayelet Waldman
#191. During the periods in my marriage when I chose to stay home with my kids rather than work as an attorney, it caused me no end of anxiety. Despite the fact that I knew I was contributing to our family by caring for our children, I still felt that my worth was less because I wasn't earning. #Quote by Ayelet Waldman
Our Children quotes by Jenny Zhang
#192. From that point on, I would refer to him as "your uncle" and he would mostly refer to me as "your aunt" and it would take a longtime for our children to even understand that we were siblings first. #Quote by Jenny Zhang
Our Children quotes by Malcolm X
#193. When we send our children to school, they learn nothing about us other than we used to be cotton pickers. Why, your grandfather was Nat Turner; your grandfather was Toussaint L'Ouverture; your grandfather was Hannibal. It was your grandfather's hands who forged civilization and it was your grandmother's hands who rocked the cradle of civilization. But the textbooks tell our children nothing. #Quote by Malcolm X
Our Children quotes by Franklin D. Roosevelt
#194. We may not be able to prepare the future for our children, but we can at least prepare our children for the future. #Quote by Franklin D. Roosevelt
Our Children quotes by John Wells
#195. Both of our children are adopted, and my wife and I didn't go out of ways to find kids that looked like us. We were just happy to have some kids. And people tell me all the time that they look like us, and that's because they learn to smile and laugh and move their head a certain way from studying their parents' faces. #Quote by John Wells
Our Children quotes by Ray Comfort
#196. To encourage children into Rock Music is to place them into the white hot arms of Molech and the beat and power behind the music will drown out the cries of your child as occultic powers consume him and drag him into the fires of hell! #Quote by Ray Comfort
Our Children quotes by Cornelius Plantinga
#197. We know the excitement of getting a present - we love to unwrap it to see what is inside. So it is with our children. They are gifts we unwrap for years as we discover the unique characters God has made them. #Quote by Cornelius Plantinga
Our Children quotes by Gary Paul Nabhan
#198. Solitude takes time, and caregivers to children have no time. Our children demand attention and need care. They ask questions and parents must answer. The number of decisions that go into a week of parenting astonishes me. Women have known for centuries what I have just discovered: going to work every day is far easier than staying home raising children...thoughtful parenting requires time to think, and parents of young children do not have time to think...One middle-aged female writing student spoke to me of feeling she lacked the freedom to "play hooky in nature"; it is an act of leisure men indulge in while women stay at home, keeping domestic life in order. Men often can justify poking around in the woods as a part of their profession, or as part of an acceptably manly activity like hunting or fishing. Women, for generations circumscribed by conventional values, must purposefully create opportunities for solitude, for exploration of nature or ideas, for writing. #Quote by Gary Paul Nabhan
Our Children quotes by Paul Collier
#199. How do we give credible hope to the billion poorest people in the world? It requires compassion to get ourselves started, and enlightened self-interest to get serious ... If economic divergence continues, combined with global integration, it will build a nightmare for our children. #Quote by Paul Collier
Our Children quotes by Wilfred A. Peterson
#200. Our children are watching us live, and what we ARE shouts louder than anything we can say. #Quote by Wilfred A. Peterson
Our Children quotes by Penelope Ann Miller
#201. Luckily because I had a family and children, my priorities changed. I mean, I'm very passionate about my work but I have other interests and other things that balance my life. #Quote by Penelope Ann Miller
Our Children quotes by Christina Stead
#202. A mother! What are we worth really? They all grow up whether you look after them or not. That poor miserable brat of his is growing up, and I certainly licked the hide off her; and she's seen marriage at its worst, and now she's dreaming about 'supermen' and 'great men'. What is the good of doing anything for them? #Quote by Christina Stead
Our Children quotes by Thomas Daniel Nehrer
#203. Regardless of type, however, the mechanism of a religion works like this: children, from the time they can communicate, are taught to see reality in a certain way. They are indoctrinated with a pre-defined belief structure and value set. Naive, open to such teaching, given only the religious viewpoint and perhaps punished or ostracized if they don't accept it, most ultimately absorb and mimic the religion outright. #Quote by Thomas Daniel Nehrer
Our Children quotes by Susan Fletcher
#204. Stories are thick with meanings. You can fall in love with a story for what you think it says, but you can't know for certain where it will lead your listeners. If you're telling a tale to teach children to be generous, they may fix instead on the part where your hero hides in an olive jar, then spend the whole next day fighting about who gets to try it first.
People take what they need from the stories they hear. The tale is often wiser than the teller. #Quote by Susan Fletcher
Our Children quotes by Jacques Hadamard
#205. To parents who despair because their children are unable to master the first problems in arithmetic I can dedicate my examples. For, in arithmetic, until the seventh grade I was last or nearly last. #Quote by Jacques Hadamard
Our Children quotes by Dylan Thomas
#206. The Hunchback in the Park

The hunchback in the park
A solitary mister
Propped between trees and water
From the opening of the garden lock
That lets the trees and water enter
Until the Sunday sombre bell at dark

Eating bread from a newspaper
Drinking water from the chained cup
That the children filled with gravel
In the fountain basin where I sailed my ship
Slept at night in a dog kennel
But nobody chained him up.

Like the park birds he came early
Like the water he sat down
And Mister they called Hey mister
The truant boys from the town
Running when he had heard them clearly
On out of sound

Past lake and rockery
Laughing when he shook his paper
Hunchbacked in mockery
Through the loud zoo of the willow groves
Dodging the park keeper
With his stick that picked up leaves.

And the old dog sleeper
Alone between nurses and swans
While the boys among willows
Made the tigers jump out of their eyes
To roar on the rockery stones
And the groves were blue with sailors

Made all day until bell time
A woman figure without fault
Straight as a young elm
Straight and tall from his crooked bones
That she might stand in the night
After the locks and chains

All night in the unmade park
After the railings and shrubberies
The bir #Quote by Dylan Thomas

Our Children quotes by Leta Blake
#208. I want you. Just the way you are. That's all that matters to me. I don't want your lands or your house or to force you to give me children. I want you on your knees begging for me to take you. The rest of this contract can go to hell." His #Quote by Leta Blake

Our Children quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#211. Enough, children. In case you haven't noticed, we have a major situation playing out. We have to find and stop War, corral the gallu, protect Apostolos, and get Savitar out of here. (Apollymi) Why the later? (Jared) Because I hate his guts. (Apollymi) I hate you, too, precious. (Savitar) #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Our Children quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#212. Man is born an asocial and antisocial being. The newborn child is a savage. Egoism is his nature. Only the experience of life and the teachings of his parents, his brothers, sisters, playmates, and later of other people FORCE HIM to acknowledge the advantages of social cooperation and accordingly to change his behavior. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Our Children quotes by Queen Rania Of Jordan
#213. It's about using social media for social change: creating a community of advocates who can use their voices on behalf of the voiceless, or leverage their talents, skills, knowledge, and resources to put more children into classrooms, or pressure their elected representatives to get global education top of the agenda. #Quote by Queen Rania Of Jordan
Our Children quotes by Charles Herbert Best
#214. The situation with regard to insulin is particularly clear. In many parts of the world diabetic children still die from lack of this hormone ... [T]hose of us who search for new biological facts and for new and better therapeutic weapons should appreciate that one of the central problems of the world is the more equitable distribution and use of the medical and nutritional advances which have already been established. The observations which I have recently made in parts of Africa and South America have brought this fact very forcible to my attention. #Quote by Charles Herbert Best
Our Children quotes by Susan Meissner
#215. Sometimes asking God for a reason for something is like asking Him why the sky is blue. There is a complex, scientific reason for it, Claire, but most children, including you, are content with knowing it is blue because it is. If we understood everything about everything, we would have no need for faith. #Quote by Susan Meissner
Our Children quotes by Michael Che
#216. Cartoon violence is something very vivid and dark but made palatable for children in a fun way. That's the kind of comedy I do - I try to take subjects that might seem deep and make them as silly as possible. #Quote by Michael Che
Our Children quotes by Anton Zeilinger
#217. I believe in the future of humankind. As long as there are children, as long as there are people who look up at the night sky in sheer wonder, as long as there is music and poetry and the Mona Lisa -- and old monasteries and young artists and fledgling scientists and all the other expressions of human creativity -- I will remain optimistic."
- Anton Zeilinger #Quote by Anton Zeilinger
Our Children quotes by Jenny Offill
#218. What it means to be a good person, a moral person, is calculated differently in times of crisis than in ordinary circumstances," she says. She pulls up a slide of people having a picnic by a lake. Blue skies, green trees, white people.

"Suppose you go with some friends to the park to have a picnic. This act is, of course, morally neutral, but if you witness a group of children drowning in the lake and you continue to eat and chat, you have become monstrous. #Quote by Jenny Offill
Our Children quotes by Cherie Priest
#219. I would let the whole town think I'm a madwoman and a murderer, let it scorn and reject me, let its children compose hateful rhymes to be sung whilst jumping rope. #Quote by Cherie Priest
Our Children quotes by E.E. Knight
#220. . . . the elves and dwarves were considered the greater races, the humans and blighters the lesser ones. He said the shorter-lived races would be thriving when the others were gone and just legends. In his mind, the great races think only of themselves, the lesser live and build for their children and grandchildren's world. #Quote by E.E. Knight

Our Children quotes by William T. Piper
#225. Once you have learned to fly your plane, it is far less fatiguing to fly than it is to drive a car. You don't have to watch every second for cats, dogs, children, lights, road signs, ladies with baby carriages and citizens who drive out in the middle of the block against the lights ... Nobody who has not been up in the sky on a glorious morning can possibly imagine the way a pilot feels in free heaven. #Quote by William T. Piper
Our Children quotes by Cecelia Ahern
#226. As long as you're around, your life is too. So just as you shower love and affection and attention on the husbands, wives, parents, children and forever friends who surround you, you have to do so equally with your life, because it's yours, it's you, and it's always there rooting for you, cheering you on, even when you feel like you can't do it. I gave up on my life for a while, but what I've learned is that even when that happens and especially when that happens, life never gives up on you. Mine didn't. And we'll be there for each other until those final moments when we will look at each other and say, 'Thanks for staying until the end.'
And that's the truth. #Quote by Cecelia Ahern
Our Children quotes by Robert Hass
#227. The love of books
is for children
who glimpse in them
a life to come, but
I have come
to that life and
feel uneasy
with the love of books.
This is my life,
time islanded
in poems of dwindled time. #Quote by Robert Hass
Our Children quotes by Julius Lester
#228. To write and not tell the truth? That would be death for any writer. But more, it would be death to the imagination. And if the imagination dies, what would happen to the souls of children? #Quote by Julius Lester
Our Children quotes by Lord Dunsany
#229. There passed a child of four, a small girl on a footpath over the fields, going home in the evening to Erl. They looked at each other with round eyes.

"Hullo," said the child.

"Hullo, child of men," said the troll.

. . . "What are you?" said the child.

"A troll of Elfland," answered the troll.

"So I thought," said the child.

"Where are you going, child of men?" the troll asked.

"To the houses," the child replied.

"We don't want to go there," said the troll.

"N-no," said the child.

"Come to Elfland," the troll said.

The child thought for a while. Other children had gone, and the elves always sent a changeling in their place, so that nobody quite missed them and nobody really knew. She thought awhile of the wonder and wildness of Elfland, and then of her own house.

"N-no," said the child.

"Why not?" said the troll.

"Mother made a jam roll this morning," said the child. And she walked on gravely home. Had it not been for that chance jam roll she had gone to Elfland.

"Jam!" said the troll contemptuously and thought of the tarns of Elfland, the great lily-leaves lying flat upon their solemn waters, the huge blue lilies towering into the elf-light above the green deep tarns: for jam this child had forsaken them! #Quote by Lord Dunsany

Our Children quotes by Chirag Tulsiani
#237. And much like the despairity of the woman who can never bear children, my dreams can never bear fruit. They are the mountains I can never climb.
The hurdles I can never leap.
The seas I can never cross.
The skies I can never look up to.
Yet, I adopt them.
Unblemished.
Guilt-free. #Quote by Chirag Tulsiani

Our Children quotes by Patrick Q. Mason
#239. Disbelievers can be good, solid people who love their spouse and children and live ethical, productive, meaningful lives. At the same time, disbelievers must understand that educated, informed, and sincere people can believe in the reality of Joseph Smith's revelations, the truth of the Book of Mormon, and the divine inspiration behind the church. They are not covering up secret doubts nor are they victims of false consciousness when they bear testimony. There are informed people who genuinely believe in and belong to the church. I am one of them. #Quote by Patrick Q. Mason
Our Children quotes by Martin Jacques
#240. In my experience, there are plenty of bad middle-class parents: those who put their own lives and careers before those of their children and make precious little time available for their offspring, preferring instead to hire in childcare and shower them with the latest and most expensive gadgets. #Quote by Martin Jacques
Our Children quotes by Brian Sutton-Smith
#241. I keep trying to understand the phenomenon of why adults are so literal when children are so imaginative. Toys are a caricature of reality. #Quote by Brian Sutton-Smith
Our Children quotes by Sarah Silverman
#242. One of the biggest - and I would guess most common - mistakes parents make is to transfer their own childhood shit onto their kids. Whatever their joys and agonies were growing up, they assume will be exactly the same for their children, and they let it guide their parenting. I can see the same dumb instincts in myself. When I first started hanging out with my old boyfriend's kids, I found it depressing because I would just look at them and think of how miserable they must be, and how totally alone they must feel. To me, that's what childhood meant. But the truth was that they were fine. Happy-go-lucky, even. #Quote by Sarah Silverman
Our Children quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#243. You know it already that each one of us is the effect of the infinite past; the child is ushered into the world not as something flashing from the hands of nature, as poets delight so much to depict, but he has the burden of an infinite past; for good or evil he comes to work out his own past deeds #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Our Children quotes by Josette Sheeran

Our Children quotes by John Steinbeck
#245. The cars of the migrant people crawled out of the side roads onto the great cross-country highway, and they took the migrant way to the West ... And because they were lonely and perplexed, because they had all come from a place of sadness and worry and defeat, and because they were all going to a mysterious new place, ... a strange thing happened: the twenty families became one family, the children were the children of all. The loss of home became one loss, and the golden time in the West was one dream. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Our Children quotes by Michio Kaku
