All children are born geniuses, and we spend the first six years of their lives degeniusing them.R. Buckminster Fuller First Born Children Sayings By R. Buckminster Fuller: All children are born geniuses, and we spend the first six years of their lives
Evil was defined as the use of power to destroy the spiritual growth of others for the purpose of defending and preserving the integrity of our own sick selves. In short, it is scapegoating. We scapegoat not the strong but the weak. For the evil to so misuse their power, they must have the power to use in the first place. They must have some kind of dominion over their victims. The most common relationship of dominion is that of parent over child. Children are weak, defenseless, and trapped in relation to their parents. They are born in thrall to their parents ... They are simply not free or powerful enough to escape.M. Scott Peck First Born Children Sayings By M. Scott Peck: Evil was defined as the use of power to destroy the spiritual growth of others
I was born and brought up near a village in Nottinghamshire and in my childhood enjoyed the freedom of the rather isolated country life. After the First World War, my father had bought a small farm, which became a marvelous playground for his five children.Godfrey Hounsfield First Born Children Sayings By Godfrey Hounsfield: I was born and brought up near a village in Nottinghamshire and in my childhood
Each of the films, whether it's Magic Mike or Dallas Buyers Club, was a challenge for me. I had to dig deeper. Also, my decision to shake things up came after my first child was born. I had taken nearly two years off and I thought that I would enjoy my time as a dad and wait until something interesting came alongMatthew McConaughey First Born Children Sayings By Matthew McConaughey: Each of the films, whether it's Magic Mike or Dallas Buyers Club, was a challenge
I didn't start sweating until I had children. That was one of the first things I realized when my daughter Violet was born - I started getting wicked BO. You know there's a difference between basketball BO and stress BO? This was definitely stress BO. Like, new dad BO.Dave Grohl First Born Children Sayings By Dave Grohl: I didn't start sweating until I had children. That was one of the first things
Hattie's children died in the order in which they were born: first Philadelphia, then Jubilee.Ayana Mathis First Born Children Sayings By Ayana Mathis: Hattie's children died in the order in which they were born: first Philadelphia, then Jubilee.
The Bird of Paradise, it seemed, had beckoned us on and led us in, to stand here in this place high in the land of volcanoes. It was here in Bali, after returning from the Toraja Star Children, that I first recognized what they meant by us all being born half of heaven and half of earth. And after the mounted warsports of Sumba it was in Balinese ritual that I saw with new eyes the battle for balance between light and darkness. And after Borneo, returning to the sacred Banyan tree and its simian custodians, I had felt that all great trees, what's left of them, do indeed link heaven and earth in a single forest of life.Lawrence Blair First Born Children Sayings By Lawrence Blair: The Bird of Paradise, it seemed, had beckoned us on and led us in, to
I have made all my films for my children with the exception of my first film because my oldest daughter wasn't born when I was making the film about the Brooklyn Bridge.Ken Burns First Born Children Sayings By Ken Burns: I have made all my films for my children with the exception of my first
We believe that the first time we're born, as children, it's human life given to us; and when we accept Jesus as our Savior, it's a new life. That's what "born again" means.Jimmy Carter First Born Children Sayings By Jimmy Carter: We believe that the first time we're born, as children, it's human life given to
Mr. Beecher used to say that the first thing for a man to do, if he would succeed in life, was to be careful to "choose a good father and mother to be born of.John C. Carlile First Born Children Sayings By John C. Carlile: Mr. Beecher used to say that the first thing for a man to do, if
Perhaps the most dramatic effect of legalized abortion, however, and one that would take years to reveal itself, was its impact on crime. In the early 1990s, just as the first cohort of children born after Roe v. Wade was hitting its late teen years - the years during which young men enter their criminal prime - the rate of crime began to fall. What this cohort was missing, of course, were the children who stood the greatest chance of becoming criminals. And the crime rate continued to fall as an entire generation came of age minus the children whose mothers had not wanted to bring a child into the world. Legalized abortion led to less unwantedness; unwantedness leads to high crime; legalized abortion, therefore, led to less crime.Steven D. Levitt First Born Children Sayings By Steven D. Levitt: Perhaps the most dramatic effect of legalized abortion, however, and one that would take years
When a child is born, a father is born. A mother is born, too of course, but at least for her it's a gradual process. Body and soul, she has nine months to get used to what's happening. She becomes what's happening. But for even the best-prepared father, it happens all at once. On the other side of a plate-glass window, a nurse is holding up something roughly the size of a loaf of bread for him to see for the first time.Frederick Buechner First Born Children Sayings By Frederick Buechner: When a child is born, a father is born. A mother is born, too of
Bran knew. "She's a child. A child of the forest." He shivered, as much from wonderment as cold. They had fallen into one of Old Nan's tales.
"The First Men named us children," the little woman said. "The giants called us wok dak nag gran, the squirrel people, because we were small and quick and fond of trees, but we are no squirrels, no children. Our name in the True Tongue means those who sing the song of the earth. Before your Old Tongue was ever spoken, we had sun our songs ten thousand years."
Meera said, "You speak the Common Tongue now."
"For him. The Bran boy. I was born in the time of the dragon, and for two hundred years I walked the world of men, to watch and listen and learn. I might be walking still, but my legs were sore and my heart was weary, so I turned my feet for home."
"Two hundred years?" said Meera.
The child smiled. "Men, they are the children.
George R R Martin First Born Children Sayings By George R R Martin: Bran knew. "She's a child. A child of the forest." He shivered, as much from
The first of Sam and Rosie's children was born on the twenty-fifth of March, a date that Sam noted.J.R.R. Tolkien First Born Children Sayings By J.R.R. Tolkien: The first of Sam and Rosie's children was born on the twenty-fifth of March, a
You can only have one first born child. You may love all your children deeply and with passion, but there is something unique about the first born.Raymond E. Feist First Born Children Sayings By Raymond E. Feist: You can only have one first born child. You may love all your children deeply
Every morning, when people are getting up in the tent, the babies are crying, people are pushing each other at the taps outside and some children are already pulling the crusts of porridge off the pots we ate from last night, my first-born brother and I clean our shoes. Our grandmother makes us sit on our mats with our legs straight out so she can look carefully at our shoes to make sure we have done it properly. No other children in the tent have real school shoes. When we three look at them it's as if we are in a real house again, with no war, no away.Nadine Gordimer First Born Children Sayings By Nadine Gordimer: Every morning, when people are getting up in the tent, the babies are crying, people
All human life on the planet is born of woman. The one unifying, incontrovertible experience shared by all women and men is that months-long period we spent unfolding inside a woman's body. Because young humans remain dependent upon nurture for a much longer period than other mammals, and because of the division of labor long established in human groups, where women not only bear and suckle but are assigned almost total responsibility for children, most of us first know both love and disappointment, power and tenderness, in the person of a woman.Adrienne Rich First Born Children Sayings By Adrienne Rich: All human life on the planet is born of woman. The one unifying, incontrovertible experience
Then, as a child does, she grew to accept the first great absence in her life, a weaning from the sure certainty that all children are born with - that it was no country where loss could come their way, that nothing would ever change in that place called home.Kalyan Ray First Born Children Sayings By Kalyan Ray: Then, as a child does, she grew to accept the first great absence in her
News reports can overwhelm us. We can be appalled, we can sympathise. But what is hard to grasp is the sense that, at this moment, people are working, organising - not just at an executive level, but on the floor, in the warehouse. A man is packing a box of oral rehydration tablets; maternity kits are being prepared; education kits are being packed. And somewhere, tomorrow, those boxes will be unpacked and a child with life-threatening diarrhoea will be saved, a baby will be born in more hygienic circumstances, a girl will receive her first exercise book and her first pencil.Ralph Fiennes First Born Children Sayings By Ralph Fiennes: News reports can overwhelm us. We can be appalled, we can sympathise. But what is
Rick told me, a little later, I should be living in community. He said I should have people around bugging me and getting under my skin because without people I could not grow
I could not grow in God, and I could not grow as a human. We are born into families, he said, and we are needy at first as children because God wants us together, living among one another, not hiding ourselves under logs like fungus. You are not a fungus, he told me, you are a human, and you need other people in your life in order to be healthy.
Donald Miller First Born Children Sayings By Donald Miller: Rick told me, a little later, I should be living in community. He said I
Oh, Beli; not so rashly, not so rashly: What did you know about states or diasporas? What did you know about Nueba Yol or unheated 'old law' tenements or children whose self-hate short-circuited their minds? What did you know, madame, about immigration? Don't laugh, mi negrita, for your world is about to be changed. Utterly. Yes: a terrible beauty is etc., etc. Take it from me. You laugh because you've been ransacked to the limit of your soul, because your lover betrayed you almost unto death, because your first son was never born. You laugh because you have no front teeth and you've sworn never to smile again.Junot Diaz First Born Children Sayings By Junot Diaz: Oh, Beli; not so rashly, not so rashly: What did you know about states or
The patron god of children born on Thursdays is Shiva the Destroyer, and that the day has two guiding animal spirits
the lion and the tiger. The official tree of children born on Thursday is the banyan. The official bird is the peacock. A person born on Thursday is always talking first, interrupting everyone else, can be a little aggressive, tends to be handsome ("a playboy or playgirl," in Ketut's words) but has a decent overall character, with an excellent memory and a desire to help other people.
Elizabeth Gilbert First Born Children Sayings By Elizabeth Gilbert: The patron god of children born on Thursdays is Shiva the Destroyer, and that the
All the stories of the Bible that I know came to me first from my grandfather's lips. He would see stories in everything. He told stories very easily and very generously, so I loved him for that. He was a simple man, a Victorian; he was born in 1890-something. He saw no reason and had never seen any reason to question his Christian faith. His faith was strong and simple and that's it. And I, like his other grandchildren and the children in his parish, sheltered underneath it.Philip Pullman First Born Children Sayings By Philip Pullman: All the stories of the Bible that I know came to me first from my
Congratulations," he said, his voice dry. "You finally managed to find a woman as tragically noble as yourself. I didn't think one existed."
"I'm not tragic."
Kaldar held up his hand. "Spare me. Some children are born wearing a silk shirt; you were born wrapped in melancholy. When they slapped you to make you cry, you just sighed heavily and a single tear rolled from your eye." He dragged his finger from the corner of his left eye to his cheek. " Your first words were probably 'woe is me.'"
"My first words were 'Kaldar, shut up!' because you talked too much. Still do.
Ilona Andrews First Born Children Sayings By Ilona Andrews: Congratulations," he said, his voice dry. "You finally managed to find a woman as tragically
The new-come stepmother hates the children born to a first wife.Euripides First Born Children Sayings By Euripides: The new-come stepmother hates the children born to a first wife.
I can always track my career by the children - I started writing right after the 14-year-old was born, and sold my first book just in time to pay for the birth of the 12-year-old.Heather Graham Pozzessere First Born Children Sayings By Heather Graham Pozzessere: I can always track my career by the children - I started writing right after
My children were born into this. They will always be the grandchildren of the President and First Lady of the United States.Columba Bush First Born Children Sayings By Columba Bush: My children were born into this. They will always be the grandchildren of the President
An ordinary life used to look something like this: born into a growing family, you help rear your siblings, have the first of your own half-dozen or even dozen children soon after you're grown, and die before your youngest has left home.Jill Lepore First Born Children Sayings By Jill Lepore: An ordinary life used to look something like this: born into a growing family, you
You are a member of the first generation of doctors in the history of medicine to turn their backs on the oath of Hippocrates and kill millions of old useless people, unborn children, born malformed children, for the good of mankind - and to do so without a single murmur from one of you. Not a single letter of protest in the august New England Journal of Medicine. And do you know what you're going to end up doing? You a graduate of Harvard and a reader of the New York Times and a member of the Ford Foundation's Program for the Third World? Do you know what is going to happen to you? ... You're going to end up killing Jews.Walker Percy First Born Children Sayings By Walker Percy: You are a member of the first generation of doctors in the history of medicine
My first-born. All I can remember of her is how she loved the burned bottom of bread. Can you beat that?Eight children and that's all I remember.Toni Morrison First Born Children Sayings By Toni Morrison: My first-born. All I can remember of her is how she loved the burned bottom
There is something inexpressibly sad in the thought of the children who crossed the ocean with the Pilgrims and the fathers of Jamestown, New Amsterdam, and Boston, and the infancy of those born in the first years of colonial life in this strange new world.Alice Morse Earle First Born Children Sayings By Alice Morse Earle: There is something inexpressibly sad in the thought of the children who crossed the ocean
Tatiana knew she had been born too late into the family. She and Pasha. She should have been born in 1917, like Dasha. After her there were other children, but not for long: two brothers, one born in 1919 and one in 1921, died of typhus. A girl, born in 1922, died of scarlet fever in 1923. Then in 1924, as Lenin was dying and the New Economic Plan - that short-lived return to free enterprise - was coming to an end, while Stalin was scheming to enlarge his power base in the presidium through the firing squad, Pasha and Tatiana were born seven minutes apart to a very tired twenty-five-year-old Irina Fedorovna. The family wanted Pasha, their boy, but Tatiana was a stunning surprise. No one had twins. Who had twins? Twins were almost unheard of. And there was no room for her. She and Pasha had to share a crib for the first three years of their life. Since then Tatiana slept with Dasha.Paullina Simons First Born Children Sayings By Paullina Simons: Tatiana knew she had been born too late into the family. She and Pasha. She
Like the tide eroding the surface of a rock, the raising of children slowly eats away at all the fanciful ideals and standards that you were so adamant about when your first child was born.Jon Ziegler First Born Children Sayings By Jon Ziegler: Like the tide eroding the surface of a rock, the raising of children slowly eats
I was born in Belgium on 6 November 1932. I am married to Mira Nikomarow and have five children: Michele, Anne, Georges, from a first marriage with Esther Dujardin, and Sarah, Helene from a second one with Danielle Vindal.Francois Englert First Born Children Sayings By Francois Englert: I was born in Belgium on 6 November 1932. I am married to Mira Nikomarow
I remember the first year after my second child was born, what I can remember of it at all, as a year of disarray, of overturned glasses of milk, of toys on the floor, of hours from sunrise to sunset that were horribly busy but filled with what, at the end of the day, seemed like absolutely nothing at all. What saved my sanity were books. What saved my sanity was disappearing, if only for fifteen minutes before I inevitably began to nod off in bed ... and as it was for me when I was young and surrounded by siblings, as it is today when I am surrounded by children, reading continues to provide an escape from a crowded house into an imaginary room of one's own.Anna Quindlen First Born Children Sayings By Anna Quindlen: I remember the first year after my second child was born, what I can remember
The continuing, direct operation of the Holy Ghost on those who are called to be God's children implies, in fact, a broadening process of incarnation. Christ, the son begotten by God, is the first-born who is succeeded by an ever-increasing number of younger brothers and sisters. There are, however, neither begotten by the Holy Ghost nor born of a virgin ... Their lowly origin (possibly from the mammals) does not prevent them from entering into a close kinship with God as their father and Christ as their brother.Carl Jung First Born Children Sayings By Carl Jung: The continuing, direct operation of the Holy Ghost on those who are called to be
A very interesting scene appears in the Bible right after the ten plagues. The Egyptians had enslaved the Jews and mistreated them, then they were punished severely, having their economy devastated and life as they had known it taken away from them by the effects of the ten plagues. But as the Jews were about to leave Egypt, the Egyptians gave the Jews all of their jewelry. Remember, these were people who had just lost their first born children. This was an amazing gesture of blessing from the ones who had cursed you. It would have been very easy for the Egyptians to have fallen into the "victim mode". Instead it was much more empowering for the Egyptians to take this as an experience never to be repeated.Celso Cukierkorn First Born Children Sayings By Celso Cukierkorn: A very interesting scene appears in the Bible right after the ten plagues. The Egyptians
This one is from an ancient Zoroastrian legend of the first parents of the human race, where they are pictured as having sprung from the earth in the form of a single reed, so closely joined that they could not have been told apart. However, in time they separated; and again in time they united, and there were born to them two children, whom they loved so tenderly and irresistibly that they ate them up. The mother ate one; the father ate the other; and God, to protect the human race, then reduced the force of man's capacity for love by some ninety-nine per cent. Those first parents thereafter had seven more pairs of children, every one of which, however - thank God! - survived.Joseph Campbell First Born Children Sayings By Joseph Campbell: This one is from an ancient Zoroastrian legend of the first parents of the human
He laughs. And in his laugh I hear bliss. I hear feet dancing, the rush of skirts twirling. The sound of children.
Is that the first sign of love?
You hear in the person you're destined to love the sound of those yet to be born.
Alyson Richman First Born Children Sayings By Alyson Richman: He laughs. And in his laugh I hear bliss. I hear feet dancing, the rush
The Constitution is quite clear that no person "except a natural born citizen" is eligible to be president of the United States, but there is no such restriction placed on a president's wife. Louisa Adams is the only one of a long line of First Ladies who were born abroad, and although her father was an American and citizenship her birthright, it became an issue that was used against her husband, John Quincy Adams, when he ran for the presidency. It was a whispering campaign, to be sure, because most people knew very well that Louisa was as much a citizen as they were. A large number of people didn't understand that children born to Americans abroad inherited their parents' rights, and in Louisa's case, even some of those who did know this weren't so sure that the rule applied to her because her mother was a British subject.Bill Harris First Born Children Sayings By Bill Harris: The Constitution is quite clear that no person "except a natural born citizen" is eligible
When you abort the first born of any, nature takes its vengeance on the subsequent children,Bob Marshall First Born Children Sayings By Bob Marshall: When you abort the first born of any, nature takes its vengeance on the subsequent
An actor said recently that, unless you're a parent, you shouldn't play a parent in a film. I don't know who said it, but I disagree. I understand that maybe there are aspects that you don't understand, or maybe this actor or actress had a really strong recent experience with having their first or second or third born child. I don't know. As a dad, I get that. I get that there is no love like it. But, at the same time, love is love.Colin Farrell First Born Children Sayings By Colin Farrell: An actor said recently that, unless you're a parent, you shouldn't play a parent in
When joy and prayer are married, their first born child is gratitude.Charles Spurgeon First Born Children Sayings By Charles Spurgeon: When joy and prayer are married, their first born child is gratitude.
TEN THINGS THAT PEOPLE WHO DIDN'T READ THE FIRST BOOK REALLY OUGHT TO KNOW.

I. One day, your father and mother were hugging, and they began to have special feelings. Warm feelings that tingled in their private places. It is likely they weren't wearing any clothes. At any rate, they began to rub against each other like two sticks trying to start a fire, and nine months later, you were born. If this is news to you, please put this book down now. There may well be big bad wolves and evil witches and fairies in the pages that follow, but I promise you, this isn't a children's story.
Elliott James First Born Children Sayings By Elliott James: TEN THINGS THAT PEOPLE WHO DIDN'T READ THE FIRST BOOK REALLY OUGHT TO KNOW.I. One
Death was a constant fact of life. The reaper struck with fire and drowning; typhus, malaria, yellow fever, and a host of other diseases; accidents that ranged from the swift shock of a horse's kick to a slow-spreading infection from a cut finger; and suicide and murder. More than one-fifth of the children born died before their first birthday; at birth the average life expectancy for an adult was little more than forty.6 Medicine at best could offer a patient little help and at worst was lethal, an excruciating matter of bleeding, blistering, and purging with potions such as laudanum, a mixture of opium and alcohol.Barbara Weisberg First Born Children Sayings By Barbara Weisberg: Death was a constant fact of life. The reaper struck with fire and drowning; typhus,
Relatively many autists are first-born children. There is also a pretty widespread conviction that the parents of autists are somehow different - for instance, many of them are very serious people or people who are themselves under some sort of strain.Nikolaas Tinbergen First Born Children Sayings By Nikolaas Tinbergen: Relatively many autists are first-born children. There is also a pretty widespread conviction that the
Every now and then, I'm lucky enough to teach a kindergarten or first-grade class. Many of these children are natural-born scientists - although heavy on the wonder side and light on scepticism. They're curious, intellectually vigorous. Provocative and insightful questions bubble out of them. They exhibit enormous enthusiasm. I'm asked follow-up questions. They've never heard of the notion of a 'dumb question'.
But when I talk to high school seniors, I find something different. They memorize 'facts'. By and large, though, the joy of discovery, the life behind those facts, has gone out of them. They've lost much of the wonder, and gained very little scepticism. They're worried about asking 'dumb' questions; they're willing to accept inadequate answers; they don't pose follow-up questions; the room is awash with sidelong glances to judge, second-by-second, the approval of their peers.
Carl Sagan First Born Children Sayings By Carl Sagan: Every now and then, I'm lucky enough to teach a kindergarten or first-grade class. Many
With a new national commitment, our scientists and engineers will overcome obstacles to taking these [hydrogen fuel cell] cars from laboratory to showroom, so that the first car driven by a child born today could be powered by hydrogen, and pollution-free.George W. Bush First Born Children Sayings By George W. Bush: With a new national commitment, our scientists and engineers will overcome obstacles to taking these
Romans marveled that in Egypt female children were not left to die; a Roman was obligated to raise only his first-born daughter.Stacy Schiff First Born Children Sayings By Stacy Schiff: Romans marveled that in Egypt female children were not left to die; a Roman was
"A son," I say, recalling every detail of the child's perfect face.
Ivory's smile is blinding. "A most unique creature. The first child to be born to two netherlings who've shared a childhood. Wonderland is founded on chaos, madness, and magic. For so long, innocence and imagination have had no place there. As a result, we haven't had children, at least by your world's definition. And because of this, we've lost the ability to dream. But Morpheus experienced those things via you, each time you played together in your dreams. Through your child, Wonderland will thrive with new magic and strength. Our offspring will become true children once more; they will learn to dream again. And all will be right with our world.
A.G. Howard First Born Children Sayings By A.G. Howard: "A son," I say, recalling every detail of the child's perfect face.Ivory's smile is blinding.
The number of children who are born subsequent to a first abortion who have handicaps has increased dramatically. Why? Because when you abort the first-born of any, Nature takes its vengeance on the subsequent children. In the Old Testament, the first-born of every being, animal and man, was dedicated to the Lord. There's a special punishment Christians would suggest,Bob Marshall First Born Children Sayings By Bob Marshall: The number of children who are born subsequent to a first abortion who have handicaps

If you are sharing a folder with 100 users, a couple of them are bound to be using easily guessed passwords to guard their accounts (the names of pets or first-born children, 'password', etc.).

If you are sharing a
You spend your whole life trying to get out of holes. The hole you're born into because of who your parents are. The hole you dig yourself trying to get out of that first hole. The hole your children are born into is the saddest hole of all. It occurs to her that she has spent most of her life digging herself out of or into one hole or another. And then, in the end, they just lower you into the ground anyway. She whispers a question, kind of like a prayer, if she were the praying sort, to no one in particular, How in the world do you ever get out?Gabrielle Zevin First Born Children Sayings By Gabrielle Zevin: You spend your whole life trying to get out of holes. The hole you're born

No matter where we're born, which countries we're raised in, what cultures we come from, there are some universal experiences we all have as children. We all kind of start the same. We want the love of our parents, companionship, friends, we want to have fun, to play, and we're all hurt the first time we learn that the world is far from perfect place - it's the start of a series of epiphanies and realizations that is what growing up is all about.Khaled Hosseini First Born Children Sayings By Khaled Hosseini: No matter where we're born, which countries we're raised in, what cultures we come from,
All other men, being born of woman, have a navel, by reason of the umbilical vessels inserted into it, which from the placenta carry nourishment to children in the womb of their mothers; but it could not be so with our first parents. It cannot be believed that God gave them navels which would have been altogether useless.Richard Cumberland First Born Children Sayings By Richard Cumberland: All other men, being born of woman, have a navel, by reason of the umbilical
