Antoine de Saint-Exupery

It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

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.
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]
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

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.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
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.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
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.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.

Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
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
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.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
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.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

Dobson, Dr. James C.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
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.
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.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
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
