A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.

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.
Children always turn to the light.

Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

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.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
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.
