It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
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]
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.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
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.

Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.

Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
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.
Be gentle with the young.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.

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.
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.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
The child is the father of the man.

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
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.

Emerson, Ralph Waldo

John J. Plomp

Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
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.
