Valerie Andrews, A Passion for this Earth "As a child, one has that magical capacity to move among the many eras of the earth; to see the land as an animal does; to experience the sky from the perspective of a flower or a bee; to feel the earth quiver and breathe beneath us; to know a hundred different smells of mud and listen unself- consciously to the soughing of the trees. The Audubon Nature Preschool "Children are born naturalists. They explore the world with all of their senses, experiment in the environment, and communicate their discoveries to those around them. Ernest Becker "When we understand that man is the only animal who must create meaning, who must open a wedge into neutral nature, we already understand the essence of love.

Each of the quotes about children is thought-provoking. These little sound bites tell us the essence of children, how we should regard and rear them, and how they should be nourished. I have found the best way to give advice to your children is to find out what they want and then advise them to do it. Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see. It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men. Children are natural zen masters; their world is brand new in each and every moment. We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
