Children love and want to be loved and they very much prefer the joy of accomplishment to the triumph of hateful failure. Do not mistake a child for his symptom.

Erik Erikson. Childhood and Society, 1950.

There is always one moment in childhood when the door opens and lets the future in.
Graham Greene. The Power and the Glory, 1940.

Many things can wait; the child cannot. Now is the time his bones are being formed, his mind is being developed. To him we cannot say tomorrow; his name is today.
Gabriela Mistral

Helping children at a level of genuine intellectual inquiry takes imagination on the part of the adult.
Dorothy H. Cohen. The Learning Child, 1972.

The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind.
William James
