Torrie, Alfred

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.
Updike, John

20.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.

Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

Greg Garcia

34.
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

35.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

Harrison, Jane

50.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund
