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)

    Death’s a sad bone; bruised, you’d say,

    and yet she waits for me, year after year,
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Let him be great, and love shall follow him. Nothing is more deeply punished than the neglect of the affinities by which alone society should be formed, and the insane levity of choosing associates by others’ eyes.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The Child’s Toys and the Old Man’s Reasons
    Are the Fruits of the Two seasons.
    William Blake (1757–1827)
