Best Quotes about Children
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.

To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify.

Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience.

Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do.
