Peter Ustinov

2.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

3.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

4.
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.
Jordan, June

5.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

6.

7.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

8.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.

9.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

10.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

11.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

12.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

13.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

14.
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.
Burbank, Luther

15.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

16.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

17.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

18.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

19.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

20.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

21.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

22.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

23.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
Spolin, Viola

24.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

25.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

26.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

27.
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.
Orwell, George

28.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

29.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

30.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

31.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

32.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

33.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

34.
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.
Key, Ellen

35.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

36.
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

37.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

38.
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

39.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

40.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

41.
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

42.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

43.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.

Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

46.
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

47.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
