Dorothy Parker

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

Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

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

9.

Parker, Dorothy

10.
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.
Cox, Marcelene

11.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.

Dobson, Dr. James C.

14.
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]
Bible

15.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

16.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

17.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

18.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

19.
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.
Jordan, June

20.
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.

21.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham

22.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

23.
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.
Campbell, Beatrix

24.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

25.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

26.
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

27.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

28.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

29.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

30.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

31.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

32.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

33.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

34.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

35.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

36.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

37.
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.
Hazzard, Shirley

38.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

39.
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

40.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

41.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Harrison, Jane

42.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

43.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

44.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

45.
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

46.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

47.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

48.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

49.
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

50.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
