King Edward VIII
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them.

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

John J. Plomp
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.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.

Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
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.

Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience.

Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Children need models rather than critics.
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.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
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.
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.
