You must walk your own path

“Restore balance. Most kids have technology, school and extracurricular activities covered. It’s time to add a pinch of adventure, a sprinkle of sunshine and a big handful of  outdoor play.” – Penny Whitehouse

“Let the children be free; encourage them; let them run outside when it is raining; let them remove their shoes when they find a puddle of water; and when the grass of the meadows is wet with dew, let them run on it and trample it with their bare feet; let them rest peacefully when a tree invites them to sleep beneath its shade; let them shout and laugh when the sun wakes them in the morning.” –  Maria Montessori

“Playing together in nature is as much about us as it is about the child. Children get to celebrate and be themselves, while we are reminded of our inner child – the essence of who we are.” – Nicolette Sowder

“Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see.” – John F. Kennedy

“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.” – Frederick Douglass

“There is only one pretty child in the world and every mother has it.” 

“I come from that society and there is a common thread, specifically family values—the idea that you do anything for your family, and the unconditional love for one’s children.” – Ednita Nazario 

“It is a wise father that knows his own child.” – William Shakespeare

“The more people have studied different methods of bringing up children, the more they have come to the conclusion that what good mothers and fathers instinctively feel like doing for their babies is the best after all.” -Benjamin Spock

“A baby is God’s opinion that the world should go on.” –  Carl Sandburg

“When times are hard, when your friends turn against you and your luck seems to fail, know that I will always be just a phone call away.”

“I know you must walk your own path, but let my love be the light to guide you.”

“It’s a beautiful thing, watching another adult walking around out there in the world with my heart beating inside them.”

“Butterflies have wings, so they can fly. Fish have gills, so they can swim. Bunnies have four legs, so they can run. I have a heart, so I can love you.”

“See the stars? I made a wish on one, and I got you.”

“There’s no bad thing you could do that would ever change my love.”

“Wherever you go, my love is with you.”

“I hug you and kiss you and tell you I love you because it fills me with joy. I’ll hug you and kiss you and tell you I love you some more so you’ll be full too.”

“I love you when I wake up in the morning. I love you all day long. I love you in my dreams at night.”

“No work is more important than my love for you.”

“Being a parent wasn’t just about bearing a child. It was about bearing witness to its life.” – Jodi Picoult

“What it’s like to be a parent: It’s one of the hardest things you’ll ever do but in exchange it teaches you the meaning of unconditional love.” – Nicholas Sparks

“Accept the children the way we accept trees—with gratitude, because they are a blessing—but do not have expectations or desires. You don’t expect trees to change, you love them as they are.” – Isabel Allende

“Before I had my child, I thought I knew all the boundaries of myself, that I understood the limits of my heart. It’s extraordinary to have all those limits thrown out, to realize your love is inexhaustible.” – Uma Thurman

“A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten and the future worth living for.” – Unknown

“My children are the reason I laugh, smile and want to get up every morning.” – Gina Lee Nolin

“Having a baby is a life-changer. It gives you a whole other perspective on why you wake up every day.” – Taylor Hanson

“The gain is not the having of children; it is the discovery of love and how to be loving.” – Polly Berrien Berends

“A baby is born with a need to be loved—and never outgrows it.” – Frank A. Clark

“To me luxury is to be at home with my daughter, and the occasional massage doesn’t hurt.” – Olivia Newton-John
