Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
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.

Lois McMaster Bujold

Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.

Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
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.
