Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
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.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le
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.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Be gentle with the young.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
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.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
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.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
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.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
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.
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.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
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.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
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
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
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.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Never have children, only grand children.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
