What we did in our childhoods makes us who we are now  (Childhoods Quotes) What, after all, is more real to us than the geography of our childhoods?  (Childhoods Quotes) We all have two childhoods, the unhappy one and the happy one  (Childhoods Quotes) Vietnam was what we had instead of happy childhoods  (Childhoods Quotes) A lot of people do have tragic childhoods. But you know what? Get over it  (Childhoods Quotes) I write for kids because I think the most interesting (and most humorous) stories come from people’s childhoods. When I was writing ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid,’ I had a blast talking on the phone to my younger brother, Patrick, remembering all of the things that happened to our family when we were growing up.  (Childhoods Quotes) Those rosy memories we all share are actually memories from our favorite TV shows. We’ve confused our own childhoods with episodes of Ozzie and Harriet, Father Knows Best, and The Brady Bunch. In real life, Ozzie had a very visible mistress for years, Bud and Kitten on Father Knows Best grew up to become major druggies, and Mom on The Brady Bunch dated her fifteen-year-old fictional son.  (Childhoods Quotes) I spent the first summer after my diagnosis creeping about in giant sun hats and tents, cursing the sun, staying inside as much as possible. Now I am beginning to think the most important thing is educated sun exposure, because the melanomas of today are not caused by today’s sunbathing, but by our childhoods and early adolescence.  (Childhoods Quotes) So much of memory comes from the beginning of our lives when we know the world for the first time with a kind of clarity. It is that discovery of the past in the present on which a writer depends again and again as if our lost childhoods, like the surprising cyclamen plant, are forever opening new blossoms.  (Childhoods Quotes) I wasn’t against becoming a dad: I’d had a good childhood, as childhoods go, and as role models, my imperfect parents were as good as or better than most.  (Childhoods Quotes) Psychology doesn’t like to talk about evil. It likes to talk about bad childhoods. But I very much believe that some people are evil and motivation is not necessary for evil.  (Childhoods Quotes) On Michael Jackson and child stardom: He had one of the worst childhoods ever. I think I had the second  (Childhoods Quotes) The most important element of the foster care system is getting kids out of foster care and into a permanent placement so they don’t have to spend their entire childhoods in courtrooms, wondering if they will ever have a place to call home.  (Childhoods Quotes) Part of my evolution has been to learn how painful most people’s childhoods are. They grow up not liking themselves, not loving themselves. Ask people if they were lovable the minute they were born, and watch them sit back and have to think about it. One lady said, ‘I suppose so.’ That’s painful.  (Childhoods Quotes) I had a great childhood. I think writers are always better off when they have more twisted childhoods, but I didn’t.  (Childhoods Quotes) Healthy parenting is especially challenging when our own childhoods weren’t healthy. It requires energy, attention, and constant restraint. Realize that you need healing. Take time out to nurture yourself.  (Childhoods Quotes) Childhood isn’t just those years. It’s also the opinions you form about them afterward. That’s why our childhoods are so long.  (Childhoods Quotes) We have to understand how the extremists got the way they are. Without that kind of understanding, we’d never really get to know them. I put in nothing about their childhoods. But what I have put in is stuff about the weird symbiotic relationship between us and them.  (Childhoods Quotes) Travelling childhoods are a common theme among actors. Army kids, embassy kids, travelling salesmen, clergy. Thing is, you learn about behaviour, that different places are separated by behaviours which are culturally driven.  (Childhoods Quotes) I think sometimes when our childhoods are difficult, we forget that there’s also a lot of joy  (Childhoods Quotes) It’s hard to separate your remembered childhood and its emotional legacy from the childhoods that are being lived out in your house, by your children. If you’re lucky, your kids will help you make that distinction.  (Childhoods Quotes) I was such a sullen, angry, sad kid. I’m sure there are writers who have had happy childhoods, but what are you going to write about? No ghosts, no fear. I’m very happy that I had an unhappy and uncomfortable childhood.  (Childhoods Quotes) I am thrilled to write ‘The Treasure Chest,’ and to bring to life not only the childhoods of famous people from history, but also the characters of Maisie and Felix, who I hope you will fall in love with just as I have!  (Childhoods Quotes) My parents were not perfect, but no one’s parents are. As childhoods go, mine was pretty comfortable and good in a lot of ways, and yet I still ended up with anxiety.  (Childhoods Quotes) Our lives are determined less by our childhood than by the traumatic way we have learned to remember our childhoods  (Childhoods Quotes) We terrorize ourselves with fears of reliving childhood traumas, but if we survived our childhoods - a time of fewer options and resources - we are surely likely to prevail as adults  (Childhoods Quotes) Everything we are is anchored in our childhoods. The drama comes in how we deal with it. Are we slaves to our past, or can we rise above it? This is the stuff of great stories  (Childhoods Quotes) And this is what we called our childhoods. Little more than a dress rehearsal for adding our digits to the butcher’s bill of war  (Childhoods Quotes) We are all refugees from our childhoods. And so we turn, among other things, to stories. To write a story, to read a story, is to be a refugee from the state of refugees. Writers and readers seek a solution to the problem that time passes, that those who have gone are gone and those who will go, which is to say every one of us, will go. For there was a moment when anything was possible. And there will be a moment when nothing is possible. But in between we can create  (Childhoods Quotes)
