Wordy Wednesday

Good morning and welcome to another Wordy Wednesday. This week we are going to look at some quotes about 'Children and Childhood'.
It's no secret that as we grow older some of the wonder and magic of all that surrounds us fades with the pressures of life and all the business of each day. There's nothing quite like looking at the world through the eyes of a child. Some of the quotes are funny, some thought provoking, some tongue-in-cheek and I selected just a few of my favourites. I hope you find one that triggers that forgotten wonder if only for a moment.

'Kids: they dance before they learn there is anything that isn't music' ~ William Stafford

'Every child comes with the message that God is not yet discouraged of man.' ~ Rabindranath Tagore

'Boy, n. : a noise with dirt on it.' ~ Not Your Average Dictionary

'Youth is a wonderful thing. What a crime to waste it on children.' ~ George Bernard Shaw

'Children seldom misquote. In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn't have said.' ~Author Unknown

'While we try to teach our children all about life,
Our children teach us what life is all about' ~ Angela Schwindt

'A child seldom needs a good talking to as a good listening to.'~ Robert Brault

'A rose can say I love you,
orchids can enthrall,
but a weed bouquet in a chubby fist,
yes, that says it all.' ~ Author Unknown

'Having a two-year-old is like having a blender that you don't have the top for.' ~ Jerry Seinfeld

'There are no seven wonders of the world in the eyes of a child. There are seven million.' ~ Walt Streightiff

'If you haven't time to respond to a tug at your pants leg, your schedule is too crowded.' ~Robert Brault

'A little girl is sugar and spice and everything nice - especially when she's taking a nap.' ~ Author Unknown

'There was never a child so lovely but his mother was glad to get him to sleep.' ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
