Childhood, n. the state or period of being a child
For the Child in All of Us
~ Teddy Bear's Picnic ~
If you go down in the woods today
You'd better not go alone
It's lovely down in the woods today
But safer to stay at home
For ev'ry Bear that ever was
Will gather there for certain because
Today's the day the Teddy Bears
have their Picnic
"I know he looks vicious, but he's really kind and gentle. He's my friend."
~Belle,Beauty & the Beast~
What would I give to live where you are?
What would I pay to stay here beside you?
What would I do to see you smiling at me?
Where would we walk? Where would we run?
If we could stay all day in the sun?
Just you and me, and I could be part of your world
I don't know when, I don't know how
But I know something's starting right now
Watch and you'll see, someday
I'll be part of your world
Part of Your World, Reprise (final)
"You will never leave me. No matter what happens,
I'll always be with you. Forever."
"Bless the seven little men who have been so kind to me, and...and may my dreams come true. Oh yes, and please make Grumpy like me."
~Snow White, Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs~
A mother held her new baby and
very slowly rocked him back and forth,
back and forth, back and forth.
And while she held him, she sang:
I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always,
As long as I'm living
my baby you'll be.
Excerpt from "Love You Forever"
By Robert Munsch
"Al, You're in love. You're not going
to find another girl like this in a
million years. Believe me, I've looked."
"My sixth life was my favorite, my body grew old,
but I never, never grew up."
~Garfield, His 9 Lives~
True, he was shorter than some and greener than most, but this, she knew, was the man of her dreams, her prince, her destiny.
Reflections on Kermit/The Muppet Movie
"Remember who you are"
~Mufasa,The Lion King~
"What is REAL?" asked the Rabbit one day, when the were lying side by side near the nursery fender, before Nana came to tidy the room. "Does it mean having things that buzz inside you and a stick-out handle?"
"Real isn't how you are made," said the Skin Horse. "It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real."
"Does it hurt?" asked the Rabbit.
"Sometimes," said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful.
"When you are Real you don't mind being hurt."
"Does it happen all at once, like being wound up," he asked "or bit by bit?"
"It doesn't happen all at once," said the Skin Horse. "You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't often happen to people who break easily,or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand."
