boys of summer


“You are worried about seeing him spend his early years in doing nothing. What! Is it nothing to be happy? Nothing to skip, play, and run around all day long? Never in his life will he be so busy again.
(Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Emile, 1762)





           " It is easier to build strong boys than to repair
broken men."
                                                           (Frederick Douglass)
                                                      
                                                     



“The boy is father to the man”




We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
(Stacia Tauscher)




There's nothing that can help you understand your beliefs more than trying to explain them to an inquisitive child.  (Frank A. Clark)





       Then followed that beautiful season... Summer....

Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape

Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


                                                                    


Don't worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you.
(Robert Fulghum)




Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children. 

(Charles R. Swindoll, The Strong Family)




“Be patient with the boys - you are dealing with soul-stuff”
                                                                       (Elbert Hubbard)





"...........fishing, drawing, and music occupied my every moment. Cares I knew not, and cared naught about them.
( James Audubon)








                 Time goes, you say? Ah, no!                     
                                      Alas, Time stays, we go.
                                                                 
                                                                                                     (Henry Austin Dobson)
