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

Gibran, Kahlil

21.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

22.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

23.
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

24.
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

25.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

26.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

27.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

28.
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

29.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

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

31.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

32.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

33.
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

34.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

35.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

36.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

37.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

38.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

39.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Rich, Adrienne

Landers, Ann

48.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

49.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

50.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
