Children

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

3.
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

I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

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

12.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

13.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Updike, John

Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

15.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.

Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

Ruskin, John

26.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

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

31.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John

32.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

33.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

34.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

35.
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.
Swift, Jonathan

36.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

37.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

38.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

39.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

40.
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

41.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

Ehrenreich, Barbara

49.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
