A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

Wilde, Oscar

Baldwin, James

Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

17.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

18.
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

19.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

20.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

21.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

22.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

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

24.

Bergor, Ben

25.
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.
Orwell, George

26.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

27.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

28.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

29.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

30.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

31.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

32.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

33.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

34.
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.

35.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

36.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Klee, Paul

37.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

38.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

39.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

40.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

41.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

42.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

43.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

44.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Josh Lieb

45.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

48.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

49.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

50.
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
