A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

2.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

3.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

4.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

5.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

6.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

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

Angier, Bradford Arthur

9.
It takes three to make a child.

Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

16.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

17.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
Spolin, Viola

18.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

19.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

20.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

21.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

22.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

23.
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

24.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

25.
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

26.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

27.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

28.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

29.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

30.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

31.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

32.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

33.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

34.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

35.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

36.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

37.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

38.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

39.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

40.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

41.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

42.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

43.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

44.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

45.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

46.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

47.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

48.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

49.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

50.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
