A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
A happy childhood is poor preparation for human contacts.
Sidonie Gabrielle Colette
A happy childhood… is the worst possible preparation for life.
Childhood is the most beautiful of all life’s seasons.
Childhood is a promise that is never kept.
Childhood is the fiery furnace in which we are melted down to essentials and that essential shaped for good.
Katherine Anne Porter
There is always one moment in childhood when the door opens and lets the future in.
