Ungovernable Children quotes by Maya Angelou
#1. Some entertainers have tried to make art of coarseness, but in their public crudeness they have merely revealed their own vast senses of personal inferiority. When they heap mud upon themselves and allow their tongues to wag with vulgarity, they expose their belief that they are not worth loving and in fact are unlovable. When we as an audience indulge then in their profanity, we are like the audience at the Roman Colosseum being thrilled as the raging lions kill the unarmed Christians. We not only participate in the humiliation of the entertainers, but we are brought low by sharing in the obscenity. We need to have the courage to say obesity is not funny and vulgarity is not amusing. Insolent children and submissive parents are not the characters we want to admire and emulate. Flippancy and sarcasm are not qualities which we need to include in our daily conversations. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Ungovernable Children quotes by William Matthews
#2. We all have two childhoods, the unhappy one and the happy one. #Quote by William Matthews
Ungovernable Children quotes by Phoebe Fox
#3. My parents are actors as well, so I grew up around that world. It was always a very romantic, mythical world. They did a lot of theater, so to me an actor was getting to come backstage and dressing room mirrors with bulbs around them and trying on people's costumes. It was very exciting to me as a child. #Quote by Phoebe Fox
Ungovernable Children quotes by Harry Belafonte
#4. To really know what progress we're making for children, we have to know how many children we have to begin with. The simple act of counting is an expression of a country's intent to take care of its people. #Quote by Harry Belafonte
Ungovernable Children quotes by Connie Willis
#5. We live in hope that the good we do here on earth will be rewarded in heaven. We also hope to win the war. We hope that right and goodness will triumph, and that when the war is won, we shall have a better world. And we work toward that end. We buy war bonds and put out incendiaries and knit stockings---"

And pumpkin-colored scarves, Polly thought.

"---and volunteer to take in evacuated children and work in hospitals and drive ambulances" - here Alf grinned and nudged Eileen sharply in the ribs - "and man anti-aircraft guns. We join the Home Guard and the ATS and the Civil Defence, but we cannot know whether the scrap metal we collect, the letter we write to a solider, the vegetables we grow, will turn out in the end to have helped win the war or not. We act in faith.

"But the vital thing is that we act. We do not rely on hope alone, thought hope is our bulwark, our light through dark days and darker nights. We also work, and fight, and endure, and it does not matter whether the part we play is large or small. The reason that God marks the fall of the sparrow is that he knows that it is as important to the world as the bulldog or the wolf. We all, all must do 'our bit'. For it is through our deeds that the war will be won, through our kindness and devotion and courage that we make that better world for which we long. #Quote by Connie Willis
Ungovernable Children quotes by Christianna Brand
#6. The Agency was doubtful, because they had already sent a lot of nurses and nannies and governesses to Mr. and Mrs. Brown's family. 'The person you want,' they said, 'is Nurse Matilda. #Quote by Christianna Brand
Ungovernable Children quotes by Gary Chapman
#7. Every child has a special way of perceiving love. There are five ways children (indeed, all people) speak and understand emotional love. They are physical touch, words of affirmation, quality time, gifts, and acts of service. #Quote by Gary Chapman
Ungovernable Children quotes by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
#8. May God have mercy upon us! So many of us are children and are only interested in the presents and the gifts and the entertainments. That is not proof that we are truly born again. The Devil can counterfeit experiences and gifts and most other things, but there is one thing the Devil cannot do, and that is give us a desire for a personal knowledge of God. The Devil can give you an interest in theology and encourage it; as you go on, you become more and more proud of your vast knowledge. That is not what I am talking about. I am talking about the crying out of a child's need for his or her Father, the true filial cry and desire. The Devil cannot counterfeit that; he knows nothing about it, and he cannot produce it. Only one person can produce it; that is God himself through the Spirit as he implants within us a seed of this living life. #Quote by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Ungovernable Children quotes by Catie Rosemurgy
#9. When I was young, I hid under the porch with a star in my throat.
When I got a little older, my mother opened the cupboard to let the fire out.


I believe the stories got wet and began to bleed together.
I believe we built the sides of the town too high and the events kept rolling back.
I didn't know that the water was going to keep rising as well,
but if you have any say in the matter, while the boats go down,
I'd like to be on a ladder,
peeking into a loft made narcotic with children,
a dead pool with rolling, living waves. If possible,
I'd like the water to douse the match that's growing out of the bones of my hand. #Quote by Catie Rosemurgy
Ungovernable Children quotes by Mango Wodzak
#10. We all enter this world as potential barefoot fruitarians. Fruit has that up front mixture of appeals, vibrant colours, the tantalising textures and deliciously sweet flavours that provided corruption and addiction are not already imbued, are instinctively appealing to all children. But alas it's a path few of us are privileged enough, or permitted to embark upon at such an early age. Instead, it rarely takes too long following nascence, before we find ourselves as involuntary shod omnivores. Rarely is such a state of affairs ever cross-examined. #Quote by Mango Wodzak
Ungovernable Children quotes by Maurice Sendak
#11. Messages are the death of an honest literary transaction with children #Quote by Maurice Sendak
Ungovernable Children quotes by Louis Farrakhan
#12. The white man is our mortal enemy, and we cannot accept him. I will fight to see that vicious beast go down into the late of fire prepared for him from the beginning, that he never rise again to give any innocent black man, woman or child the hell that he has delighted in pouring on us for 400 years. #Quote by Louis Farrakhan
Ungovernable Children quotes by Virginia Woolf
#13. I do think all good and evil comes from words. I have to tune myself into a good temper with something musical, and I run to a book as a child to its mother. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Ungovernable Children quotes by Kahlil Gibran
#14. I love you, my brother, whoever you are - whether you worship in a church, kneel in your temple, or pray in your mosque. You and I are children of one faith, for the diverse paths of religion are fingers of the loving hand of the one supreme being, a hand extended to all, offering completeness of spirit to all, eager to receive all. #Quote by Kahlil Gibran
Ungovernable Children quotes by Bill Cosby
#15. My children love my mother, and I tell my children, that is not the same woman I grew up with ... That is an old woman trying to get into heaven now. #Quote by Bill Cosby
Ungovernable Children quotes by Deborah Roberts
#16. The best legacy we leave is not for our children but in our children. #Quote by Deborah Roberts
Ungovernable Children quotes by Paula Poundstone
#17. I confess that when I first read that smog is particularly hazardous to children, senior citizens, and physically active people, for a brief moment I thought, I'm in the clear for at least ten years. #Quote by Paula Poundstone
Ungovernable Children quotes by Marie Osmond
#18. I don't tell my children, 'If you're not good, you're going to hell.' I tell my children that God will be there for them when they struggle. That's the God I believe in. #Quote by Marie Osmond
Ungovernable Children quotes by Frank R. Wilson
#19. Buttressing this argument (that you can prevent children from learning to read or ride bicycles but you can't stop them from learning to talk), Chomsky had pointed to two other universals in human language: that its emergence in children follows a very precise timetable of development, no matter where they live or which particular language is the first they learn; and that language itself has an innate structure. Chomsky has recently reminded audiences that the origins of the structure of language - how semantics and syntax interact - remain as "arcane" as do its behavioral and neurologic roots. Chomsky himself finds nothing in classical Darwinism to account for human language.* And for that reason, says Plotkin, linguistics is left with a major theoretical dilemma. If human language is a heritable trait but one that represents a complete discontinuity from animal communicative behavior, where did it come from? #Quote by Frank R. Wilson
Ungovernable Children quotes by Hans Christian Andersen
#20. Most of the people who will walk after me will be children, so make the beat keep time with short steps. #Quote by Hans Christian Andersen
Ungovernable Children quotes by Anonymous
#21. There's also some research suggesting that wealth may impede empathy. One study by psychologists at the University of California at Berkeley finds that drivers of luxury cars are more likely to cut off other motorists and ignore pedestrians at a crosswalk. Likewise, heart rates of wealthier research subjects are less affected when they watch a video of children with cancer. #Quote by Anonymous
Ungovernable Children quotes by Desmond Tutu
#22. Freedom translates into having a supply of clean water, having electricity on tap; being able to live in a decent home and have a good job; to be able to send your children to school and to have accessible healthcare. I mean what's the point of having made this transition if the quality of life ... is not enhanced and improved? If not, the vote is useless. #Quote by Desmond Tutu
Ungovernable Children quotes by Jay Sankey
#23. To think of your creations in terms of better or worse- big mistake. They are your children. #Quote by Jay Sankey
Ungovernable Children quotes by Bruno Bettelheim
#24. Most advice on child-rearing is sought in the hope that it will confirm our prior convictions. If the parent had wished to proceedin a certain way but was made insecure by opposing opinions of neighbors, friends, or relatives, then it gives him great comfort to find his ideas seconded by an expert. #Quote by Bruno Bettelheim
Ungovernable Children quotes by Dalene Davies
#25. Sock Monsters Pay-It-Forward to offer hospitalized children a chance to smile, if only for a while! #Quote by Dalene Davies
Ungovernable Children quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#26. Children can see the beatitudes in nature. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Ungovernable Children quotes by Lois McMaster Bujold
#27. You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
The family economy evades calculation in the gross planetary product. It's the only deal I know where, when you give more than you get, you aren't bankrupted - but rather, vastly enriched. #Quote by Lois McMaster Bujold
Ungovernable Children quotes by Alfie Kohn
#28. Deferral of gratification may be an effect, not a cause. Just because some children were more effective than others at distracting themselves from [the marshmallow in the famous Marshmallow Test] doesn't mean this capacity was responsible for the impressive results found ten years later. Instead, both of these things may have been due to something about their home environment. If that's true, there's no reason to believe that enhancing children's ability to defer gratification would be beneficial: It was just a marker, not a cause. By way of analogy, teenagers who visit ski resorts over winter break probably have a superior record of being admitted to the Ivy League. Should we therefore hire consultants to teach low-income children how to ski in order to improve the odds that colleges will accept them? #Quote by Alfie Kohn
Ungovernable Children quotes by Bill Holm
#29. Children judge each other harshly, but don't make nice distinctions among the grown. #Quote by Bill Holm
Ungovernable Children quotes by Beth Gutcheon
#30. I'm very interested, in all my books, in community, what binds people together, which I think is an obvious consequence of being the fourth of six children. #Quote by Beth Gutcheon
Ungovernable Children quotes by Ian McClellan
#31. Todd's wife was one of those women with a forced smile perpetually cemented on her face. Even after being chased by a mob of homicidal maniacs and attempting to barricade doors with barstools she kept up appearances, practicing for the days when her husband would be running for public office. When she saw her son poking at their former mail carrier's dead body a look of utter horror came across her face for the slightest instant. She caught herself and put that smile back on so quickly Will wondered if she might have pulled a few cheek muscles.
"Trevor!" she hissed through clenched teeth. "Trevor, you get away from that this instant! You don't know what kind of diseases that man had. Children shouldn't play with dead things."
Will looked at Todd and smirked. "Cute kid. How many of those things do you think are out there? #Quote by Ian McClellan
Ungovernable Children quotes by Immanuel Kant
#32. Since in early youth it cannot be known what ends are likely to occur to us in the course of life, parents seek to have their children taught a great many things, and provide for their skill in the use of means for all sorts of arbitrary ends, of none of which can they determine whether it may not perhaps hereafter be an object to determine their pupil, but which it is at all events possible that he might aim at; and this anxiety is so great that they commonly neglect to form and correct their judgement on the value of the things which may be chosen as ends. #Quote by Immanuel Kant
Ungovernable Children quotes by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
#33. Believe that God is strong enough to save your children, no matter how you fail. #Quote by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
Ungovernable Children quotes by Wendy Lustbader
#34. With grown children, we can look back at both our mistakes and what we did well in our parenting, having conversations with a greater degree of honesty than was possible before. In getting older themselves, our adult children may begin to comprehend the burdens and strengths we carried from our own parents. #Quote by Wendy Lustbader
Ungovernable Children quotes by Nancy Astor
#35. I refuse to admit that I am more than 52, even if that makes my children illegitimate. #Quote by Nancy Astor
Ungovernable Children quotes by Jeff Bridges
#36. Poverty is a very complicated issue, but feeding a child isn't. #Quote by Jeff Bridges
Ungovernable Children quotes by Xin Ran
#37. Foreigners are like you and me, they know what children need. All women anywhere have maternal instincs, we're all like the Guan Yin inside. #Quote by Xin Ran
Ungovernable Children quotes by Woody Allen
#38. You will notice that what we are aiming at when we fall in love is a very strange paradox. The paradox consists of the fact that, when we fall in love, we are seeking to re-find all or some of the people to whom we were attached as children. On the other hand, we ask our beloved to correct all of the wrongs that these early parents or siblings inflicted upon us. So that love contains in it the contradiction: The attempt to return to the past and the attempt to undo the past. #Quote by Woody Allen
Ungovernable Children quotes by Sydney J. Harris
#39. Somebody once said that if many people had not read about romantic love and seen it on the screen, they would never look for it themselves. I believe this. And along with it I believe that if many people were not ashamed to be thought deficient in "family feeling" they would never have children. #Quote by Sydney J. Harris
Ungovernable Children quotes by Austin Grossman
#40. People talk about Eisenhower's golden age.... It all happened without me. What is the vice presidency? The Constitution dictates only two duties: casting the deciding vote if the Senate is deadlocked and replacing the president if he dies or is impeached. apart from waiting for those two things to happen, you made the rest up and were duly forgotten by history. The exception being Aaron Burr, who shot someone, decisively lowering the bar for the rest of us.
What I remember is small pieces of the world: the West Wing, the insides of planes and hotel lobbies and conference rooms. My life was dinners with Pat and the children; airplane flights; placeholder meetings with foreign dignitaries during which I nodded and reminded them I had no power to make and agreement but would speak to the president. Stomach-turning formal breakfasts, speeches to party elders and tradesmen. I opened factories in Detroit and Akron, breathing the various stinks of canneries, slaughterhouses, or rubber plans and bestowing that vice presidential combination of glamour, flattery, and the tacit reminder that they didn't quite rate a visit from the top guy. #Quote by Austin Grossman
Ungovernable Children quotes by Melinda Gates
#41. Our desire to bring every good thing to our children is a force for good throughout the world. It's what propels societies forward. #Quote by Melinda Gates
Ungovernable Children quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#42. Ah, children are not what they were in my young days. They listened to their parents then. #Quote by L.M. Montgomery
Ungovernable Children quotes by Jane Velez-Mitchell
#43. In elementary school, we should teach nonviolent conflict resolution and healthy communication skills, which will help children cope with issues like rejection and sexuality later in life. #Quote by Jane Velez-Mitchell
Ungovernable Children quotes by Anonymous
#44. The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. 10He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet o the world did not know him. 11. He came to p his own, [2] and q his own people [3] r did not receive him. 12. But to all who did receive him, s who believed in his name, t he gave the right u to become v children of God, 13who w were born, x not of blood y nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. #Quote by Anonymous
Ungovernable Children quotes by Henry Lawson
#45. The children are taught more of the meanest state in Europe than of the country they are born and bred in, despite the singularity of its characteristics, the interest of its history, the rapidity of its advance, and the stupendous promise of its future. #Quote by Henry Lawson
