Kahlil Gibran, "The Prophet":
"Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, and though they are with you, and yet they belong not to you. You may give them your love, but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward, not tarries with yesterday."

Michael Carr:
"All kids are gifted; some just open their packages earlier than others."

Black Elk-Native American Spiritual Leader:
"Grown men may learn from little children, for the hearts of little children are pure, and, therefore, the Great Spirit may show to them many things which older people miss."

Author Unknown:
"Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift; that’s why they call it the present."

Robert Fulghum-(All I Ever Really Needed to Know I Learned in Kindergarten):
"Think of what a better world it would be if we all – the whole world – had cookies and milk about 3 o’clock every afternoon and then lay down with our blankets for a nap. Or if we had a basic policy in our nations to always put things back where we found them and cleaned up our own messes. And it is still true, no matter how old you are, when you go out into the world, it is better to hold hands and stick together."

Anna Cummins:
"Do not save your loving speeches for your friends till they are dead; do not write them on their tombstones, speak them rather now instead."

Andre Maurois:
"My favorite quote is "Life is too short to be little," written by Disraeli… Often we allow ourselves to be upset by small things we should despise and forget. We lose many irreplaceable hours brooding over grievances that, in a year’s time, will be forgotten by us and by everybody. No, let us devote our life to worthwhile actions and feelings, to great thoughts, real affections and enduring undertakings."
