Tracy, Brian

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

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

15.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

16.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

19.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

20.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

21.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

22.
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]
Bible

23.
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

24.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

25.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

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

27.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

28.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

29.
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.
Rich, Adrienne

30.
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

31.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

32.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

33.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

34.
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

35.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

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

37.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

38.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

39.
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.

Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

45.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb
