Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
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.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
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
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
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.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.

Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.

Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
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.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
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
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
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.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
