Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
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
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
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]
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

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.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Adults are obsolete children.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.

She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
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.
Be gentle with the young.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.

Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children

Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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
