Dobson, Dr. James C.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
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.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.

Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
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.

What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Be gentle with the young.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Adults are obsolete children.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
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.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
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.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
