Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

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

8.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

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.
Harrison, Jane

10.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

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

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Franklin, Benjamin

14.
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.
Swift, Jonathan

15.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

16.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

Seuss, Dr.

Keillor, Garrison

21.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

22.
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. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

23.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

24.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

25.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

26.
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.

27.
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.
Rutherford, Samuel

28.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

29.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
