If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.

For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
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.
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
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

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.
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
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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
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.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.

The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]

Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
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
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.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
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.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
