Just We Two

Whenever we think of children, the first thing that comes to our mind is innocence and naivety.  A child is the purest form of a human being as he is not yet molded by the harsh realities of life. All his activities bring forth his true feelings and he is not bothered about what people think of him. Children also become the reason for happiness and joy of the grandparents as they are able to relive and relish their childhood once more by watching their grandchildren grow in front of their eyes.

If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in. 
Rachel Carson

Home is the place where boys and girls first learn how to limit their wishes, abide by rules, and consider the rights and needs of others. 
Sidonie Gruenberg

To nourish children and raise them against odds is in any time, any place, more valuable than to fix bolts in cars or design nuclear weapons.  
Marilyn French

The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.
Theodore Hesburgh

Children lose their innocence the very moment they are forced to make excuses for their parent's bad behavior.
Krista Delle Femine

"If we are to teach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children."
Mohandes Ghandi, political and spiritual leader in India

"Safety and security don't just happen, they are the result of collective consensus and public investment. We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of violence and fear."
Nelson Mandela, former president of South Africa

"Children are likely to live up to what you believe of them.    Lady Bird Johnson, former U.S. first lady
"Let us be the ones who say we do not accept that a child dies every three seconds simply because he does not have the drugs you and I have. Let us be the ones to say we are not satisfied that your place of birth determines your right to life. Let us be outraged, let us be loud, let us be bold." 
Brad Pitt, actor

"Hugs can do great amounts of good, especially for children."    Princess Diana, Princess of Wales
"A person's a person, no matter how small."   Dr. Seuss, author
