Children

Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
- Canetti, Elias

Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

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

Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

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.
Burbank, Luther

21.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

22.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

23.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

24.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

25.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

26.
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

27.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

28.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

29.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

30.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

31.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

32.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

33.
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

34.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

35.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

36.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

37.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Klee, Paul

38.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

39.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

40.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

41.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

42.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

43.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

44.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

45.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

46.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

47.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

48.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

49.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

50.
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
