Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
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.

Emerson, Ralph Waldo
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
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.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
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.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Children need models rather than critics.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
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.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
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.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
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.

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
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
