FAMOUS THOUGHTS ON CHILDHOOD
1/26/2009 1:24:28 PM

TRUISMS


In every real man a child is hidden that wants to play. ~Friedrich Nietzsche


The great man is he who does not lose his child's-heart. ~Mencius, Book IV


So, like a forgotten fire, a childhood can always flare up again within us. ~Gaston Bachelard


I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then. ~Bob Seger, "Against the Wind"


Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up. ~Pablo Picasso


Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them. ~Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince, 1943




The reluctance to put away childish things may be a requirement of genius. ~Rebecca Pepper Sinkler


Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon. A beauty bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. It would explode high in the air - explode softly - and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth - boxes of Crayolas. And we wouldn't go cheap, either - not little boxes of eight. Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination. ~Robert Fulghum


When you're green you're growing, and when you're ripe you start to rot. ~Ray Kroc


Adults are obsolete children. ~Dr. Seuss


A grownup is a child with layers on. ~Woody Harrelson


The end of childhood is when things cease to astonish us. When the world seems familiar, when one has got used to existence, one has become an adult. ~Eugene Ionesco


I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things.... I play with leaves. I skip down the street and run against the wind. ~Leo Buscaglia


One of the virtues of being very young is that you don't let the facts get in the way of your imagination. ~Sam Levenson


Creativity represents a miraculous coming together of the uninhibited energy of the child with its apparent opposite and enemy, the sense of order imposed on the disciplined adult intelligence. ~Norman Podhoretz


Think what a better world it would be if we all - the whole world - had cookies and milk about three o’clock every afternoon and then lay down with our blankies for a nap. ~Robert Fulghum, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, commonly misattributed to Barbara Jordan because she quoted Fulghum in a commencement address


My childhood may be over, but that doesn't mean playtime is. ~Ron Olson


We must remain as close to the flowers, the grass, and the butterflies as the child is who is not yet so much taller than they are. We adults, on the other hand, have outgrown them and have to lower ourselves to stoop down to them. It seems to me that the grass hates us when we confess our love for it. Whoever would partake of all good things must understand how to be small at times. ~Friedrich Nietzsche



If children grew up according to early indications, we should have nothing but geniuses. ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


What a distressing contrast there is between the radiant intelligence of the child and the feeble mentality of the average adult. ~Sigmund Freud


A child's world is fresh and new and beautiful, full of wonder and excitement. It is our misfortune that for most of us that clear-eyed vision, that true instinct for what is beautiful and awe-inspiring, is dimmed and even lost before we reach adulthood. ~Rachel Carson


There are children playing in the streets who could solve some of my top problems in physics, because they have modes of sensory perception that I lost long ago. ~J. Robert Oppenheimer


Children have neither past nor future; they enjoy the present, which very few of us do. ~Jean de la Bruyere



***MY THOUGHTS ARE, HOW CAN I BE OLD, WHEN I HAVEN'T EVEN GROWN UP YET?....
