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.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
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.

Holmes, Oliver Wendell
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
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.
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.
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.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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.

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
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.

Rousseau, Jean Jacques
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
