Call not that man wretched, who whatever else he suffers as to pain inflicted, or pleasure denied, has a child for whom he hopes and on whom he doats.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

I have often thought what a melancholy world this would be without children, and what an inhuman world without the aged.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Human beings are the only creatures that allow their children to come back home.
      - Bill Cosby

A large portion of Christ's miracles of love were wrought at the urgent request of parents for their suffering children. Is that ear gone deaf today? Will He not do for our children's souls what He did for the bodies of the ruler's daughter, and the dead youth at Nain?
      - Theodore Ledyard Cuyler

Never despair of a child. The one you weep the most for at the mercy-seat may fill your heart with the sweetest joys.
      - Theodore Ledyard Cuyler

Precious Saviour! come in spirit, and lay Thy strong, gentle grasp of love on our dear boys and girls, and keep these our lambs from the fangs of the wolf.
      - Theodore Ledyard Cuyler

Children are like grown people; the experience of others is never of any use to them.
      - Alphonse Daudet

All mothers think their children are oaks, but the world never lacks for cabbages.
      - Robertson Davies

Raising children is an uncertain thing; success is reached only after a life of battle and worry.
      - Democritus

I love these little people; and it is not a slight thing when they, who are so fresh from God, love us.
      - Charles Dickens

It always grieves me to contemplate the initiation of children into the ways of life when they are scarcely more than infants. It checks their confidence and simplicity, two of the best qualities that heaven gives them, and demands that they share our sorrows before they are capable of entering into our enjoyments.
      - Charles Dickens

Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
      - Phyllis Diller

Children have to be educated, but they have also to be left to educate themselves.
      - Ernest Dimnet

His little children, climbing for a kiss, welcome their father's late return at night.
      - John Dryden

Jesus was the first great teacher of men who showed a genuine sympathy for childhood. When He said "Of such is the kingdom of heaven," it was a revelation.
      - Edward Eggleston

In the man whose childhood has known caresses, there is always a fibre of memory that can be touched to gentle issues.
      - George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross)

A child is a curly, dimpled lunatic.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Children are all foreigners.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

What art can paint or gild any object in after life with the glow which nature gives to the first baubles of childhood? St. Peter's cannot have the magical power over us that the red and gold covers of our first picture-book possessed.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
      - Epictetus

Beware of fatiguing them by ill-judged exactness. If virtue offer itself to a child under a melancholy and constrained aspect, if liberty and license present themselves under an agreeable form, all is lost, your labor is in vain.
      - Francois de Salignac Fenelon

Children are very nice observers, and they will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
      - Francois de Salignac Fenelon

Anxiety in children is originally nothing other than an expression of the fact they are feeling the loss of the person they love.
      - Sigmund Freud

The scars left from the child's defeat in the fight against irrational authority are to be found at the bottom of every neurosis.
      - Erich Fromm

The children of to-day will be the architects of our country's destiny in 1900.
      - James Abram Garfield
