Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
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.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
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.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
The child is the father of the man.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
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.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
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.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
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.
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 poor men's riches.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
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
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
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.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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.
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 child is fed with milk and praise.
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.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
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.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
