Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

Lois McMaster Bujold

But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
