5 Inspiring Quotes About Children

Take Time To Be With A Child

“A child’s life is like a piece of paper on which every person leaves a mark.” Chinese Proverb

Now that summer is upon us and school is out, I will not be volunteering and mentoring students. In thinking about these children, I went, once again, to one of my favorite little inspiration books, “To a Child Love is Spelled T-I-M-E.”  I would like to share some quotes, from the book, with you.

v  “Time, indeed is a sacred gift, and each day is a little life.” John Lubbock

v  “Encouragement is oxygen to the soul.” George Adams
v  “All children are artists, and it is an indictment of our culture that so many of them lose their creativity, their unfettered imaginations, as they grow older.” Madeleine L’Engle
v  “It isn’t the big pleasures that count the most; it is making a great deal out of the little ones.” Anonymous
v  “The great man is he who does not lose his child’s heart.” Mencius

A very special moment happened to me last week. I received birthday greetings from Carla and Gerry, two graduates of the school where I volunteered. They both have been a wonderful part of my volunteer life. I am so thankful for the time I have had to interact with them and all the other children.
