How Fancy Toys For Kids Mold Characters

Famous quotes containing the words characters, mold, fancy, toys and/or kids:

    Though they be mad and dead as nails,
    Heads of the characters hammer through daisies;
    Break in the sun till the sun breaks down,
    And death shall have no dominion.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    Death is an incident producing clay. Use it, mold it, learn from it.
    John Gilling, British screenwriter. Dr. Knox (Peter Cushing)

    Lord’s lost Him His mockingbird,
    His fancy warbler;
    Satan sweet-talked her,
    four bullets hushed her.
    Who would have thought
    she’d end that way?
    Robert Earl Hayden (1913–1980)

    The great passion in a man’s life may not be for women or men or wealth or toys or fame, or even for his children, but for his masculinity, and at any point in his life he may be tempted to throw over the things for which he regularly lays down his life for the sake of that masculinity. He may keep this passion secret from women, and he may even deny it to himself, but the other boys know it about themselves and the wiser ones know it about the rest of us as well.
    Frank Pittman (20th century)

    We have been told over and over about the importance of bonding to our children. Rarely do we hear about the skill of letting go, or, as one parent said, “that we raise our children to leave us.” Early childhood, as our kids gain skills and eagerly want some distance from us, is a time to build a kind of adult-child balance which permits both of us room.
    Joan Sheingold Ditzion (20th century)
