The Child is a Marvel…Tell Him So Till It Sinks Deep…Says Pablo Casals

Today is Friday and I believe most of us are already in a relaxing mode and mood. Therefore, I will suspend the fireworks on Commandments of Rights-Based Communication till Monday. Permit me to share with you today a piece I find very instructive…It is short, yet very loaded…The Child is a Marvel…Tell Him So Till It Sinks Deep into all of his psyche…Says Pablo Casals…Please Relax, Read and Be Instructed:

‘Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again? And what do we teach our children? We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France.

When will we also teach them what they are? We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move.

You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel?

You must work, we must all work, to make the world worthy of its children.’

Pablo Casals

Abraham Lincoln Speaks: ‘The Fate of Humanity is in the Hands of the Child.’

https://i0.wp.com/cms.sandiegosymphony.org/images/cms/Education/Abraham_Lincoln_by_wendelin.JPG

‘A child is a person who is going to carry on what you have started. He is going to sit where you’re sitting, and when you’re gone; attend to those things, which are important. You may adopt all the policies you please, but how they are carried out depends on him. He will assume control of your Cities, States, and Nation. He is going to move in and take over your churches, schools, universities and corporations. The fate of humanity is in his hands.’ Abraham Lincoln

LETTER FROM ABRAHAM LINCOLN TO HIS SON’S TEACHER

“My son starts school today. It is all going to be strange and new to him for a while and I wish you would treat him gently. It is an adventure that might take him across continents. All adventures that probably include wars, tragedy and sorrow. To live this life will require faith, love and courage.

So dear Teacher, will you please take him by his hand and teach him things he will have to know, teaching him – but gently, if you can. Teach him that for every enemy, there is a friend. He will have to know that all men are not just, that all men are not true. But teach him also that for every scoundrel there is a hero, that for every crooked politician, there is a dedicated leader.

Teach him if you can that 10 cents earned is of far more value than a dollar found. In school, teacher, it is far more honorable to fail than to cheat. Teach him to learn how to gracefully lose, and enjoy winning when he does win.

Teach him to be gentle with people, tough with tough people. Steer him away from envy if you can and teach him the secret of quiet laughter. Teach him if you can – how to laugh when he is sad, teach him there is no shame in tears. Teach him there can be glory in failure and despair in success. Teach him to scoff at cynics.

Teach him if you can the wonders of books, but also give time to ponder the extreme mystery of birds in the sky, bees in the sun and flowers on a green hill. Teach him to have faith in his own ideas, even if every one tell him they are wrong.

Try to give my son the strength not to follow the crowd when everyone else is doing it. Teach him to listen to every one, but teach him also to filters all that he hears on a screen of truth and take only the good that comes through.

Teach him to sell his talents and brains to the highest bidder but never to put a price tag on his heart and soul. Let him have the courage to be impatient, let him have the patient to be brave. Teach him to have sublime faith in himself, because then he will always have sublime faith in mankind, in God.

This is the order, teacher but see what best you can do. He is such a nice little boy and he is my son.

Note: Please if you have any quote on children from an icon please share with us. Thank you.

Dr. Nelson Mandela Speaks for the Child

Welcome to the new page on my blog. This page is simply, ChildPLUS™: The Voices of Champion. The goal is to get us to share the sayings of great minds (champions) on children and matters, which affect them. We welcome instructive sayings from champions (dead or alive) on children. The goal is to get you motivated by the thought of great minds, who have made immense contribution to our world. I desire us to show that children also matter to the greatest of minds, who have lived or are living.

I welcome instructive sayings from my readers from great minds on children. I have a gift for your every first post. Hurry, share with us.

To share with an instructive saying of a great mind on children, please tell us briefly about the person, whose saying you want to share.

Permit me to set the ball rolling today as I bring you the Voice of Dr. Nelson Mandela, Nobel Laureate and one of the greatest defenders of the dignity of human person, our world has ever known. Hear him:

Former South African President Nelson Ma

”We have seen too much change to simply accept the way children are living. We have too much hope in the potential of children to leave things as truly are, and we have too much faith in our fellow human beings not to know that the Global Movement we are calling for can Happen.”(at the launching of Global Movement for Children, May 2000)

For every conversation we have had, we will have ten more about children, No matter what is first on a meeting agenda, or what reason we have been invited to a place, we will talk about children, their rights for healthy and nurturing families, basic health services, a quality education and the opportunities to be active participants in their communities .we would talk about their place as the pivotal link in the process of human development” (at the launching of Global Movement for Children, May 2000)

‘When your life is the struggle, like mine was, there is little room left for family. That has always been my greatest regret, and most painful aspect of the choice I made. We watched our children grow without our guidance…To be the father of a nation is a great honour, but to be the father of a family is a greater joy. But it was a joy I had far little of.’ (from Long Walk to Freedom)

Thank you for joining me today to read the Voice of Champions. I also welcome you to share too. Thank you. I urge you friends, Think the Child, Think Today, Think the Future.  Do have an INSPIRED Day.
