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

Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

5.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

6.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

7.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

8.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

9.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

10.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

11.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

Bible

16.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

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.
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.

19.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

21.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

22.
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.

23.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

24.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

25.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

26.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

27.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

28.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

29.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

30.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

31.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

32.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

33.
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

34.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

35.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

36.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

37.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

38.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

39.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

40.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

41.
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

42.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

43.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

44.
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

45.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

46.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

47.
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

48.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

49.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

50.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton
