    Peace to you.

    Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I've got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.

    ~George Bernard Shaw

     

    Through violence, you may solve one problem, but you sow the seeds for another.

    ~His Holiness the Dalai Lama

    ~John Lennon

     

    Where there is shouting, there is no true knowledge.

    ~Leonardo da Vinci

     

    Mother and baby are at first strangers to each other, but the mother, by affirming her baby's life with herself, establishes a joined entity in which each becomes a part of the other.

    ~James Kimmel, Ph.D.

     

    If you light a lamp for somebody, it will also brighten your own path.

    ~Buddha

     

    Fully and completely accept our kids - accept them as they are now, not just when they are doing what we want them to do.

    ~Kelly Matzen

     

    Conflict is inevitable - violence is not.

    ~Elizabeth Loescher

     

    When we adults think of children, there is a simple truth that we ignore: childhood is not preparation for life; childhood is life. A child isn't getting ready to live; a child is living.

    ~John A Taylor, Notes on an Unhurried Journey
