Jerry Doyle, actor

From childhood I was passionately fond of music and wanted to be a musician. I have no recollection of any real desire ever to be anything else.

John Philip Sousa, musician

The best mistake I ever made was believing that I was stupid. It was a childhood thing, but it played out big-time as an adult. It scorned me the rest of my life - in a good way.

Barbara Corcoran, businesswoman

As a child I felt myself to be alone, and I am still, because I know things and must hint at things which others apparently know nothing of, and for the most part do not want to know.

The secret of the truly successful, I believe, is that they learned very early in life how not to be busy. They saw through that adage, repeated to me so often in childhood, that anything worth doing is worth doing well.

A happy childhood is poor preparation for human contacts.

Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childhood days, recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth, and transport the traveler back to his own fireside and quiet home!

Acting is sort of an extension of childhood. You get to play all of these roles and have so much fun. Playing an athlete would be so cool. Or where you get to shoot guns, ride horses. I wouldn't turn down any of that.

Jon Hamm, actor

What can I say? I deal with it. I think I have come to terms with my absolutely hateful and vile childhood. No, I have, really. But I did hate it at the time. I resented it. There were elements of it that were positively Dickensian.

Richard Griffiths, actor

I'm the kind of person you want to kill. I had an incredibly happy childhood. I married a terrific guy when I was 23. I have great, well-adjusted kids. Sometimes my husband and I look at each other and do a little jig in the kitchen. This is the best life.

Jodi Picoult, author

One thing that people keep on saying to me is that the wealth and the fame must have made up for missing out on my childhood. But the idea of money - putting a price on your childhood - is ridiculous. You will never get those years back and you can't put a price on them.

Tom Felton, actor

Friendships in childhood are usually a matter of chance, whereas in adolescence they are most often a matter of choice.

Hakeem Olajuwon, athlete

I spent a lot of my childhood not fitting in, in a lot of different ways.

Wil Wheaton, actor

To have your childhood dream realized is a really big deal.

Maya Rudolph, actress

When did I learn the Bible? When I was four or five years old. It's still the pull of my childhood, a fascination with the vanished world, and I can find everything except that world.

Jodi Picoult, author

I didn't really get a normal childhood.

Kristin Kreuk, actress

Childhood is measured out by sounds and smells and sights, before the dark hour of reason grows.

John Betjeman, poet

Childhood: the period of human life intermediate between the idiocy of infancy and the folly of youth - two removes from the sin of manhood and three from the remorse of age.

Ambrose Bierce, journalist

All directors are control freaks and very obsessive. I get the feeling that directors as kids, they all have had a childhood with not too much contact with other kids. They constructed their own reality and they continue to do it. It's a funny breed, directors.

Stellan Skarsgard, actor

Nothing is more memorable than a smell. One scent can be unexpected, momentary and fleeting, yet conjure up a childhood summer beside a lake in the mountains.

Diane Ackerman, poet

People ask 'do you make a conscious effort not to swear?' - if you're doing silly stuff you're not tempted to put swearing in. All the comics from my childhood, who were funny without swearing, were the people that influenced me. What I do is quite traditional anyway.

Tim Vine, comedian

When childhood dies, its corpses are called adults.

Brian Aldiss, writer

We are all, in a sense, experts on secrecy. From earliest childhood we feel its mystery and attraction. We know both the power it confers and the burden it imposes. We learn how it can delight, give breathing space and protect.

Sissela Bok, philosopher

Childhood is frequently a solemn business for those inside it.

George Will, journalist

My early childhood prepared me to be a social psychologist. I grew up in a South Bronx ghetto in a very poor family. From Sicilian origin, I was the first person in my family to complete high school, let alone go to college.

Philip Zimbardo, psychologist

Most everything I do revolves around tae kwon do. That said, I like to be a typical girl and go shopping. I have three nieces and nephews that I like to hang out with. I'm also finishing my last semester at the University of Houston, where I'm majoring in childhood education.

Diana Lopez, athlete

I'm incredibly boring; I had a very happy childhood. I never starved, nor did I have a silver spoon in my mouth. I'm one of those terribly middle-of-the-road, British middle class, South London gents.

Jude Law, actor

They say everything you go through in your childhood builds character and inner strength.

Curtis Joseph, athlete

When trying to remember my share in the glow of the eternal present, in the smile of God, I return to my childhood, too, for that is where the most significant discoveries turn up.

Herman Hesse, author

Your emotional life is not written in cement during childhood. You write each chapter as you go along.

Harry Stack Sullivan, psychologist

I have worked very hard on being aware of my childhood but moving forward and not letting it bring me down emotionally. That is a hard thing - especially when you have children of your own and you remember what happened to you at that age.

Samantha Morton, actress

I had a stutter 'till... I still do today. I just work on it a lot. I obsess, if you will, with it, but I stuttered throughout my childhood.

Nicholas Brendon, actor

I had envisioned doing comedy since childhood. For sure.

Ed Helms, comedian

That aesthetic of the Star Wars universe: the do-it-yourself, hotrod ethic that George Lucas exported from his childhood, is exactly the same kind of soul behind what we do and build for the show. It may not look pretty, but it gets the job done.

Adam Savage, entertainer

Adolescence is the conjugator of childhood and adulthood.

Louise J. Kaplan,

Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.

Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man, youth never.

William Graham Sumner, businessman

My childhood was limited to mostly gospel music. We didn't have, like, a lot of records in our house, you know. It was like my grandparents who raised me. They were pretty old-fashioned in their religious ways, so it was like church, church, church, school, school, school.

Faith Evans, musician

I was brought up in a very poor and very violent household. I spent much of my childhood being afraid.

Patrick Stewart, actor

For me, however, that beloved, glowing little word happiness has become associated with everything I have felt since childhood upon hearing the sound of the word itself.

From my earliest childhood, my attention was specially directed to the subject of acoustics, and specially to the subject of speech, and I was urged by my father to study everything relating to these subjects, as they would have an important bearing upon what was to be my professional work.

Alexander Graham Bell, inventor

Southeast Asia has a real grip on me. From the very first time I went there, it was a fulfillment of my childhood fantasies of the way travel should be.

I'm a comic nerd. I'm a former serious collector for much of my childhood and early teen years I wanted to draw underground comics.

Anthony Bourdain, author

My childhood was rough, we were poor and my parents were alcoholics, but nobody was mean. I knew I was loved. We were on welfare, but I never felt abandoned or unloved.

Carol Burnett, actress

There are vivid memories from my childhood - what we had to go through because of low wages and the conditions, basically because there was no union. I suppose, if I wanted to be fair, I could say that I'm trying to settle a personal score. I could dramatize it by saying that I want to bring social justice to farm workers.

Cesar Chavez, civil rights activist

The innocence of childhood is like the innocence of a lot of animals.

Clint Eastwood, actor

I'm not one of these guys who sits around saying, 'Gee, I mean, the person had a strange childhood and that's why he's doing this horrible thing. Poor Jeffrey Dahmer. He's just had a bad childhood and that's why he's eating people.' Wait a second! This person should be removed from the planet.

Clint Eastwood, actor

I have done one thing that I think is a contribution: I helped Buddhist science and modern science combine. No other Buddhist has done that. Other lamas, I don't think they ever pay attention to modern science. Since my childhood, I have a keen interest.

Dalai Lama, leader

I didn't know any gay people in my childhood.

Dolly Parton, musician

Elie Wiesel, novelist

Unhappy is he to whom the memories of childhood bring only fear and sadness.

H. P. Lovecraft, novelist
