Quotable Sunday ~Children



The question for the child is not "Do I want to be good?" but "Whom do I want to be like?" ~ Bruno Bettelheim


Tell your child often “I love you, no matter what.” ~ Cindy Francis, Life Lessons For Mothers


When you are dealing with a child, keep all your wits about you and sit on the floor. ~ Austin O'Malley


A child needs your love most when he deserves it least. ~ Erma Bombeck


A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove. But the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child. ~ Forest Witcraft


People always ask me to list my greatest accomplishments, expecting me to rattle off a bunch of movies I've made, but what I'm proudest of is my kids. ~ Mel Gibson


You may not be able to leave your children a great inheritance, but day by day you may be weaving coats for them which they will wear through all eternity. ~ T. L. Cuyler

Those are awesome. Saying I love you to children can bring about the most beautiful of smiles, regardless of the age of the child.

Great quotes!! Children really are our legacy - not our $$$, processions, or what we did in our life. It's the lives of those that we touch while we are here.

I love the Erma Bombeck quote, it is so true! The children who act out the most are often the ones needing attention/love the most.
