    "If we are ever to have real peace in this world we shall have to begin with the children." -- Mohandas K. Gandhi


    "There is no trust more sacred than the one the world holds with children. There is no duty more important than ensuring that their rights are respected, that their welfare is protected, that their lives are free from fear and want and that they can grow up in peace."
    -- Kofi Annan


    "The greatest gift we can give to our children is to raise them in a culture of peace."
    -- Louise Diamond


    One world, one people, living together as a global family! Young people will cross religious, ethnic and cultural divides to recognize the universal human as family. WE ARE ONE and the elders of tomorrow will carry this torch.
    -- Nina Meyerhof


    If we don't stand up for children, then we don't stand for much.
    -- Marian Wright Edelman


    Have we forgotten about the children, and thus forsaken the next generation?"
    -- Audrey Hepburn


    "I speak for those children who cannot speak for themselves, children who have absolutely nothing but their courage and their smiles, their wits and their dreams.”
    -- Audrey Hepburn


    "It makes me self-conscious. It's because I'm known, in the limelight, that it's getting all the gravy, but if you knew, if you saw some of the people who make it possible for UNICEF to help these children survive. These are the people who do the jobs-the unknowns, whose names you will never know…I at least get a dollar a year, but they don't."
    -- Audrey Hepburn


    "I believe deeply that children are more powerful than oil, more beautiful than rivers, more precious than any other natural resource a country can have. I feel that the most rewarding thing I have ever done in my life is to be associated with UNICEF."
    -- Danny Kaye

    "If I have brightened up one single sad childhood, then I have at least accomplished something in my life."
    -- Astrid Lindgren


    "We physicians have focused on the nuclear threat as the singular issue of our era. We are not indifferent to other human rights and hard-won civil liberties. But first we must be able to bequeath to our children the most fundamental of all rights, which preconditions all others; the right to survival.
    -- Bernard Lown


    "Safety and security don't just happen, they are the result of collective consensus and public investment. We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of violence and fear."
    -- Nelson Mandela


    The impact of armed conflict on children is everyone's responsibility. And it must be everyone's concern.
    -- Graça Machel-Mandela


    In a disparate world, children are a unifying force capable of bringing us all together in support of a common ethic.
    -- Graça Machel-Mandela


    Therefore my challenge to each of you ... is that you ask yourself what you can do to make a difference. And then take that action, no matter how large or how small. For our children have a right to peace.
    -- Graça Machel-Mandela


    it is clear that increasingly, children are targets, not incidental casualties, of armed conflict.
    -- Graça Machel-Mandela


    Let us be the ones who say we do not accept that a child dies every three seconds simply because he does not have the drugs you and I have. Let us be the ones to say we are not satisfied that your place of birth determines your right to life. Let us be outraged, let us be loud, let us be bold."
    -- Brad Pitt


    My intent is to speak on behalf of those whose voices are less readily heard - children and women at risk
    -- Susan Sarandon


    "There is no greater legacy that we can leave our children and grandchildren than a peaceful and safer world."
    ~ Ted Turner


    Every child deserves a chance
    at a life filled with love,
    laughter, friends and family.
    -- Marlo Thomas


    "We are the ancestors of our grandchildren's children. We look after them, just as our ancestors look after us. We aren't here for ourselves. We are here for each other and for the children of our grandchildren."
    -- Roy Sesana


    Are we doing enough to help our children create a more peaceful world?
    -- Debbie Robins


    Together we can prevent genocide from happening again. Together we can make a better future for our children. -- Dith Pran


    "There can be no global security without respect for children. We have to be more than just observers of children's suffering, we have to be partners with them in their struggles."
    -- Landon Pearson
