Of Children

To make your children capable of honesty is the beginning of education"
John Ruskin (1819-1900)

" Where children are, there is a golden age"
Friedrich Von Hardenberg (1772-1801)

"Let children be able to do all things, and love to do only the good"
Michel de Montaigne (1533-1592)

"You must teach your children that the ground beneath their feet is the ashes of your grandfathers. So that they will respect the land, tell your children that the earth is rich with the lives of our kin. Teach your children what we have taught our children, that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. It men spit opun the ground, they spit upon themselves."
Seattle (1784-1866), native American chief of the Dwamish, Suquamish and allied native American tribes

" We can not shape our children according to our ideas,
We must keep and love them as God gave them to us"
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832)

"I long to be in the midst of the children, and have more pleasure in their little follies than in the wisdom of the wise"
Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)

"For children preserve the fame of a man after his death"
Aeschylus (525-456 B.C.)

". . . It is children who are God's Presence, promise and hope for mankind . . ."
