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.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
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.

Dobson, Dr. James C.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]

Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]

Diana, Princess of Wales
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
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.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.

Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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 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.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
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 best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
