If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
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

Diana, Princess of Wales

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.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.

Your children need your presence more than your presents.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
