Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
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
