[Quote No.16947] Need Area: Friends > Children
"I'd rather see a sermon than hear one any day; I'd rather one would walk with me than merely point the way. The eye's a better pupil more willing than the ear; Fine advice is confusing, but example is always clear. The best of all the preachers are the men who live their creeds, For to see good in action, is what everybody needs. I can soon learn to do it if you let me see it done; I can watch your hands in action, but your tongue too fast may run. And the lectures you deliver may be very wise and true; But I'd rather get my lesson by observing what you do. For I may misunderstand you and the high advice you give; But there's no misunderstanding how you act and how you live." - Unknown

[Quote No.16974] Need Area: Friends > Children
"Habit is the child of impulse. There is in human life the period of impulse, when habit is nothing; and there is the period of habit, when impulse is nothing. Young persons are creatures of impulse; old persons are creatures of habit....When habit is once formed, impulse is powerless against it. Indeed all impulse falls into it. It is like a deep and swift and resistless river, into which an opposing mountain current may pour with tremendous momentary shock and agitation, but with no effect whatever, save to increase the volume, rapidity, and fury of the tide, which is turned downward to the sea." - George B. Cheever

[Quote No.16977] Need Area: Friends > Children
" 'When I was a little boy,' remarked an old man, 'someone gave me a cucumber in a bottle. The neck of the bottle was small, the cucumber large. I wondered how it got in there. Then, out in the garden one day, I came upon a bottle slipped over a little green fellow. Then I understood. The cucumber had grown in the bottle...Often I see men with habits, I wonder how any strong, sensible man could form. Then I reflect that likely they grew into them when young, and cannot now slip out of them. They are like the cucumber in the bottle'." -

[Quote No.17359] Need Area: Friends > Children
"[Poem:]

It is all in vain to preach of the truth,
To the eager ears of a trusting youth,
If, whenever a lad is standing by,
He sees you cheat and he hears you lie.

Fine words may grace the advice you give,
But youth will learn from the way you live.
Honor is a word a thief may use,
High - sounding language the base may choose.

Speech is empty and preaching vain,
Though the truth shines clear and the lesson is plain;
If you play false, he will turn away,
For your life must square with the things you say.

He won't tread the path of your righteous talk,
But will follow the path which you daily walk,
'Not as I do, but as I say.'
Won't win him to follow the better way.

Through the thin veneer of your speech he'll see,
Unless you're the man you would have him be.
The longer you live you find this true;
As you would teach, you must also do.

Rounded sentences, smooth and fair,
Were better not said if your deeds aren't square,
If you'd teach him to live to his very best,
You must live your life by the self - same test.

" - Edgar Albert Guest

[Quote No.17375] Need Area: Friends > Children
"When young men are beginning life, the most important period, it is often said, is that in which their habits are formed. That is a very important period. But the period in which the ideas of the young are formed and adopted is more important still. For the ideal with which you go forth to measure things determines the nature, so far as you are concerned, of everything you meet." - Henry Ward Beecher
