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

Lois McMaster Bujold
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
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.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.

Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
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.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
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.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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

If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
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.
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.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
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.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
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.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
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.
