Barack Obama

Think Of The Children Quotes #203133
#59. Think of fear as a 2-year-old child who doesn't want to go grocery shopping with you. Because you must buy groceries, you'll just have to take the two year old with you. Fear is no different. In other words, acknowledge that fear exists but don't let it keep you from doing important tasks.

Think Of The Children Quotes #214104

Think Of The Children Quotes #232299

Warrior Doctor

Think Of The Children Quotes #277174

Madeleine L'Engle

Think Of The Children Quotes #278832
#78. People think I built the Pack, because I'm the guy who has the welfare of all shapeshifters in mind. They're wrong. Everything I built, I did so that when I mate and have children, nobody can touch my family. ( ... ) I built all this so I can protect you.

Ilona Andrews

Think Of The Children Quotes #291417

#81. Working in South Africa and the people in Johannesburg get under your skin. It stays with you. It's a place I want to take my children back to. It's a place that filled me with great joy and inspiration but also sadness. I think it's one of the most complex places on the planet.

Ryan Phillippe

Think Of The Children Quotes #295892
#82. When I see gurgling retarded children (that's God's doing, by the way, not mine) happily styling their hair with their own stinking mards, I think of Adam in those pre-marital days. I know he's your great-to-the-nth-degree-granddad and all - but I'm afraid he was rather an imbecile.

Glen Duncan

Think Of The Children Quotes #299507
#83. Kid's heads are filled with so many nonfacts that when they get out of school they're totally unprepared to do anything. They can't read, they can't write, they can't think. Talk about child abuse. The U.S. school system as a whole qualifies.

Richelle Mead

Think Of The Children Quotes #322250

Yaa Gyasi

Think Of The Children Quotes #325870

Think Of The Children Quotes #331510

Barbara Kingsolver

Think Of The Children Quotes #333544
