But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
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.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
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
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
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.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
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
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
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.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.

Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
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.
W. Somerset Maugham
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
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.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
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.
