What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.

Jones, Franklin P.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.

Curie, Madame Marie
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
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.

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.
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.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
Children are poor men's riches.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
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
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.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.

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.
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
