If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
The wildest colts make the best horses.

Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.

I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense.

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
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.

Cottle, Thomas J.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
