Shakespeare, William

2.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

3.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

4.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

5.
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.
Hazzard, Shirley

6.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.

Ruskin, John

13.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Gibran, Kahlil

14.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

15.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

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

We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

20.
What is done to children, they will do to society.

As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

22.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

23.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

24.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

25.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

26.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

Mary MacCracken

30.
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

31.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

32.
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.
Lamb, Charles

33.
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.
Keillor, Garrison

34.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

35.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

36.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

37.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

38.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

39.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Rich, Adrienne

40.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.

Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.

Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

43.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

44.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.

Angelou, Maya

Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
