Quotations on Children

Swami Vivekananda

"If I had a child I would from its very birth begin to tell it, 'Thou art the Pure One'. You have read in one of the Puranas that beautiful story of queen Madâlasâ, how as soon as she has a child she puts her baby with her own hands in the cradle, and how as the cradle rocks to and fro, she begins to sing, 'Thou art the Pure One the Stainless, the Sinless, the Mighty One, the Great One.'"
