Choosing Toys For Two Year Olds

Famous quotes containing the words olds, year, choosing and/or toys:

    An older child, one who possesses a conscience, will be troubled with self-reproaches and feelings of shame for his naughtiness, even if he is not discovered. But our two-year-olds and our three-year- olds experience guilt feelings only when they feel or anticipate disapproval from the outside. In doing this, they have taken the first steps toward the goal of conscience, but there is a long way ahead before the policeman outside becomes the policeman inside.
    Selma H. Fraiberg (20th century)

    Next year we shall be living in a country
    That brought its soldiers home for lack of money.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    Some of the smartest women in the country said that they’re too embarrassed to attend their reunions at Harvard Business School if they have dropped out of the work force, left the fast track by choosing part-time work, or decided to follow anything other than the standard male career path.
    Deborah J. Swiss (20th century)

    Man hath still either toys or care:
    But hath no root, nor to one place is tied,
    But ever restless and irregular,
    About this earth doth run and ride.
    He knows he hath a home, but scarce knows where;
    He says it is so far,
    That he has quite forgot how to go there.
    Henry Vaughan (1622–1695)
