Keillor, Garrison

2.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

4.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

5.
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.
Roosevelt, Theodore

Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

10.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?

11.
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.
Taylor, Jeremy

12.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.

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.
Wilder, Thornton

17.
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

18.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

19.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Updike, John

20.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

21.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

22.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

23.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

24.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

25.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

26.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

27.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

Hulbert, Harold

38.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

39.

40.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

41.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

42.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.

49.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

50.

Ehrenreich, Barbara
