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]

Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.

Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.

Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

32.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

33.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

34.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

35.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

36.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

37.
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.

38.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Klee, Paul

39.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

40.
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

41.
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

42.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

43.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

44.
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

45.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

46.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

47.
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

48.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

49.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

50.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison
