Childhood is the most beautiful of all life's seasons.
There is always one moment in childhood when the door opens and lets the future in.
~Graham Greene, The Power and the Glory
Is one all poets have outgrown:
The poetry, innate, untold,
Of being only four years old.
~Christopher Morley, To a Child
When you finally go back to your old hometown, you find it wasn't the old home you missed but your childhood.
Old age lives minutes slowly, hours quickly; childhood chews hours and swallows minutes.
~Malcolm de Chazal
In childhood, we press our nose to the pane, looking out. In memories of childhood, we press our nose to the pane, looking in.
If you carry your childhood with you, you never become older.
