day you should reach out and touch someone.
People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on
love hugging. I wish I was an octopus, so I could

can do great amounts of good — especially for children."
course you will insist on modesty in the children, and
respect to their teachers, but if the boy stops you
in your speech, cries out that you are wrong and sets
you right, hug him!”
Everyone knows that by far the happiest and universally
enjoyable age of man is the first. What is there about
babies which makes us hug and kiss and fondle them,
so that even an enemy would give them help at that
is when your personality shines through your looks.
Like, when you see someone's personality in the way
they walk and you just feel like hugging them every
time you see them.
hug is an amazing thing
It's just the perfect way
To show the love we're feeling
But can't find the words to say....
~Johnny Ray Ryder, Jr., "A Simple Hug"
When my children wake up in the morning they know
they will eat breakfast, get hugs from their parents,
go to a good, safe school. Plates are full and store
windows are glittering. But at the same time the great
majority of the world's children and women stand -
no - shiver on the precipice
not play at tug o'war.
I'd rather play at hug o'war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles
And rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses,
And everyone grins,
And everyone cuddles,
And everyone wins.
-- Shel Silverstein
