Children

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

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

3.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.

Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

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

The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

13.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

14.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

15.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

Plomp, John

A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

18.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

19.
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

20.
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.
Josh Lieb

21.
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.
Taylor, Jeremy

22.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

23.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

24.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

25.
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.
Canetti, Elias

26.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

27.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

28.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

29.
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

30.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

31.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

32.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

33.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

34.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

35.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

36.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Gibran, Kahlil

37.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

38.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

39.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

40.

Ray, John

41.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

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.
Friedan, Betty

43.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

44.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

45.
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.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

46.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

47.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

48.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
