Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.

Emerson, Ralph Waldo
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
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.

Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.

Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
Your children need your presence more than your presents.

Dobson, Dr. James C.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
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.

A child is fed with milk and praise.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
