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.
Best Quotes about Children
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.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
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.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Be gentle with the young.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
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
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
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.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
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.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
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 need models rather than critics.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
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.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
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.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
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
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.
Adults are obsolete children.
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.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
