The solution to adult problems tomorrow depends on large measure upon how our children grow up today.

Margaret Mead


If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.

Maria Montessori


A baby is God's opinion that life should go on. Never will a time come when the most marvelous recent invention is as marvelous as a newborn baby. The finest of our precision watches, the most super-colossal of our supercargo planes don't compare with a newborn baby in the number and ingenuity of coils and springs, in the flow and change of chemical solutions, in timing devises and interrelated parts that are irreplaceable.

Carl Sandburg


Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see.

John W. Whitehead, The Stealing of America


There can be hope only for a society which acts as one big family, not as many separate ones.

Anwar el Sadat


We must care about the world of our children and grandchildren, a world we may never see.

Bertrand Russell


We cannot always build the future of our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.

Franklin D. Roosevelt


A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.

Greek Proverb


Invest in the future; have a child and teach her well.



The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer


If we are to attain real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a war against war, we will have to begin with the children.

Mahatma Gandhi


It is my view that our society can be no more stable than the foundation of individual family units upon which it rests. Our government, our institutions, our schools...indeed, our way of life are dependent on healthy marriages and loyalty to the vulnerable little children around our feet.

James C. Dobson
