Rutherford, Samuel

3.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

4.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

5.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

6.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.

If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.

The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

14.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

15.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

16.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

17.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

18.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

19.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

21.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

22.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

Landers, Ann

Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

29.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

31.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

32.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

33.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

34.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

35.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

36.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.

Friedan, Betty

38.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.

What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

42.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Lamb, Charles
