You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.

Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
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.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
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 should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
