„I have long felt that the way to keep children out of trouble is to keep them interested in things.“
Deeds Rather Than Words (1963)
Контексте: I have long felt that the way to keep children out of trouble is to keep them interested in things. Lecturing to children is no answer to delinquency. Preaching won't keep youngsters out of trouble, but keeping their minds occupied will.
— Paul Simon American musician, songwriter and producer 1941
Song lyrics, Surprise (2006)
Контексте: Little kid dancin' in the grass, legs like rubber band.
It's summertime, summertime. There's a line at the candy stand.
Keep an eye on them children, eye on them children in the pool.
You'd better keep an eye on them children, eye on them children in the pool.

„I'm struggling with flowering trees [in Spring 1881, shortly after his Algeria trip] and with women and children. I keep feeling regretful, all the same – I think of all the trouble I have given you for nothing, and I wonder how long you will put up with my womanish whims; and through all I keep seeing those pretty English girls [Duret invited him to visit England]. What a misfortune, always to be so undecided! But it's at the root of my character, and I'm too old to change.“

Including my long-ago childhood
I was healed, but I intended [to] heal

I was saved by love
Though I tried to keep love away.“
