Swift, Jonathan

16.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

17.
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.
Taylor, Jeremy

18.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.

Lois McMaster Bujold

26.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.

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

33.

Friedan, Betty

34.
