“Life would be infinitely happier if we could only be born at the age of eighty and gradually approach eighteen.”
“What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood?”
It usually starts as fear, but given enough time, that fear will turn to rage. And it’s a rage that never burns out.
“The abandoned infant’s cry is rage, not fear.”
“Teenagers want to be able to fight for what’s right – but finding out what’s right is now 90 percent of the battle.”

I’m sure most of us remember being a kid and you have all of this endless time where two weeks before Christmas feels like ten years. I used to go to bed to try and go to sleep to try and make it go faster.

Any kid will run any errand for you, if you ask at bedtime.
“The small hopes and plans and pleasures of children should be tenderly respected by grown-up people, and never rudely thwarted or ridiculed.”
**Louisa May Alcott
“When kids hit one year old, it’s like hanging out with a miniature drunk. You have to hold onto them. They bump into things. They laugh and cry. They urinate. They vomit.”
