Klee, Paul

14.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience.

Rich, Adrienne

15.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

16.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

17.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

18.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

20.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.

21.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

22.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

23.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

24.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

25.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.

Dobson, Dr. James C.

32.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett
