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

Parker, Dorothy

8.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.

Keillor, Garrison

10.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.

Wilde, Oscar

18.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

19.
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

20.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

21.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

22.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

23.

Torrie, Alfred

24.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.

When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

26.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

Lamb, Charles

28.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

29.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

30.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

31.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

32.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

33.
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.
Greer, Germaine

34.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

42.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

43.

44.
