Quotable Sunday!

Time for Toni's Quoteable Sundays! I love this and participate every week. If you want to participate then do your own, head to Toni's site and sign her Mr. Linky and visit as many others as you can!

Today my quotes are on Childhood... since *to me* Easter is about Spring, joy, and the innocence of childhood. Its so hard to believe that we all used to believe in the Easter Bunny!

"There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter, the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again." ~Elizabeth Lawrence

"Sweet childish days, that were as long
As twenty days are now."
~William Wordsworth, "To a Butterfly"

"There is always one moment in childhood when the door opens and lets the future in." ~Deepak Chopra

"If you carry your childhood with you, you never become older." ~Tom Stoppard

"Old age lives minutes slowly, hours quickly; childhood chews hours and swallows minutes." ~Malcolm de Chazal

"If I had influence with the good fairy who is supposed to preside over the christening of all children, I should ask that her gift to each child in the world be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life."

"If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in." ~ Rachel Carson

"Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see." ~
~ John W. Whitehead

Have a wonderful Easter!

I love the one about taking your childhood with you and not growing older. I am counting on that...

Love the Deepak Chopra quote. Most of these I'd never heard before, so thanks for sharing them!
