12.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience.

Rich, Adrienne

13.

John J. Plomp

19.

20.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

21.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

22.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

23.

Friedan, Betty

37.
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.
