Need Quotes for My PEDS Web Page

  1. We are converting most of our nursing courses to web-enhanced. This is to make lecture materials more accessible to the student, but does not (in any way) replace face-to-face lectures and hard-copies of hand outs.
    This summer, we have our PEDS section of our ADN curriculum. I am updating my PEDS webpage. I like to have "quotes of the week." Many of my students have complimented me on the weekly quotes, saying it has inspired them to keep on keeping on.
    Soooo... anybody have any good pediatric nursing quotes or good quotations about children?
    Thanks for any suggestions!!!

    Here's one that I've always liked by James Barrie:

    "When the first baby laughed for the first time, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies. And now when every new baby is born its first laugh becomes a fairy. So there ought to be one fairy for every boy or girl."

    And another really cool one by the Knights of Pythagoras: "A man never stands as tall as when he kneels to help a child."

    Oh- and Jesse Torrey (sp?) "If you wish to study men you must not neglect to mix with the society of children."
