- "Children are living beings - more living than grown-up people who have built shells of habit around themselves. Therefore it is absolutely necessary for their mental health and development that they should not have mere schools for their lessons, but a world whose guiding spirit is personal love." --- Rabindranath Tagore
- "Every child begins the world again." --- Henry David Thoreau
"Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children"
---Oliver Wendell Holmes
- "Safety and security don't just happen, they are the result of collective consensus and public investment. We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of violence and fear." --- Nelson Mandela
- "There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children." --- Nelson Mandela
