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

There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

6.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

Klee, Paul

Howe, Edgar Watson

Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

15.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Lamb, Charles

16.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

17.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

18.
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
Adams, John

19.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

20.
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

21.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

22.
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

23.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

27.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

28.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

29.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

30.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

31.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

32.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

33.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

34.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

35.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

36.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

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

38.
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.
Larkin, Philip

39.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

40.
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.
Greg Garcia

41.
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

42.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

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.
Friedan, Betty

44.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

45.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

46.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

47.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

48.
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.

49.
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

50.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb
