    how to demand with all his might that which he desires’ Paulo Coelho. I love the happiness for no reason, and to demand with might.

    I could read these all day. probably the one that is quite poignant for me at this time is Nelson Mandela’s

     ” History will judge us by the difference we make in the everyday lives of children”.   

    Each one though provides cause to think and reflect.

    Thank you for sharing all of these positive quotes about children! As a parent, these are great reminders for ways to appreciate, encourage, and take care of our children. 

    I love the quote by Albert Einstein about reading fairy tales. We love reading in our family, especially fiction. All that reading can help foster creativity and curiosity, which are important aspects of intelligence.

    The Neil Gaiman quote about children exploring is on point. My children definitely prefer to forge their own trail rather than stay on the path!
