In bringing up a child, think of its old age.
      - Joseph Joubert

Let us be men with men, and always children before God; for in His eyes we are but children. Old age itself, in presence of eternity, is but the first moment of a morning.
      - Joseph Joubert

Our children and grandchildren are not merely statistics towards which we can be indifferent.
      - John Fitzgerald Kennedy

The real menace in dealing with a five-year-old is that in no time at all you begin to sound like a five-year-old.
      - Jean Kerr

At every step the child should be allowed to meet the real experience of life; the thorns should never be plucked from his roses.
      - Ellen Key

I never hear parents exclaim impatiently, "Children, you must no make so much noise," that I do not think how soon the time may come when, beside the vacant seat, those parents would give all the world, could they hear once more the ringing laughter which once so disturbed them.
      - Abbott E. Kittredge

I know that a sweet child is the sweetest thing in nature, not even excepting the delicate creatures which bear them; but the prettier the kind of a thing is, the more desirable it is that it should be pretty of its kind. One daisy differs not much from another in glory; but a violet should look and smell the daintiest.
      - Charles Lamb (used pseudonym Elia)

Is the world all grown up? Is childhood dead? Or is there not in the bosom of the wisest and the best some of the child's heart left, to respond to its earliest enchantments?
      - Charles Lamb (used pseudonym Elia)

While childhood, and while dreams, producing childhood, shall be left, imagination shall not have spread her holy wings totally to fly the earth.
      - Charles Lamb (used pseudonym Elia)

Children are what the mothers are.
      - Walter Savage Landor

Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
      - Fran Lebowitz

Even when freshly washed and relieved of all obvious confections, children tend to be sticky.
      - Fran Lebowitz

Children generally hate to be idle; all the care then is that their busy humor should be constantly employed in something of use to them.
      - John Locke (1)

I would not have children much beaten for their faults, because I would not have them think bodily pain the greatest punishment.
      - John Locke (1)

The least and most imperceptible impressions received in our infancy have consequences very important, and of a long duration. It is with these first impressions, as with a river whose waters we can easily turn, by different canals, in quite opposite courses, so that from the insensible direction the stream receives at its source, it takes different directions, and at last arrives at places far distant from each other; and with the same facility we may, I think, turn the minds of children to what direction we please.
      - John Locke (1)

A torn jacket is soon mended, but hard words bruise the heart of a child.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

It seems impossible they should ever grow to be men, and drag the heavy artillery along the dusty road of life.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Children are God's apostles, day by day sent forth to preach of love and hope and peace.
      - James Russell Lowell

A child is an angel dependent on man.
      - Joseph Marie De Maistre

In trying to teach children a great deal in a short time, they are treated not as though the race they were to run was for life, but simply a three-mile heat.
      - Horace Mann

When a child can be brought to tears, not from fear of punishment, but from repentance for his offence, he needs no chastisement. When the tears begin to flow from grief at one's own conduct, be sure there is an angel nestling in the bosom.
      - Horace Mann

Childhood shows the man, as morning shows the day.
      - John Milton

Next, to make them expert in the usefullest points of grammar; and withal to season them and win them early to the love of virtue and true labour, ere any flattering seducement or vain principle seize them wandering, some easy and delightful book of education would be read to them; whereof the Greeks have store, as Cebes, Plutarch, and other Socratic discourses.
      - John Milton

The sacred books of the ancient Persians say, "If you would be holy, instruct your children, because all the good acts they perform will be imputed to you."
      - Charles de Montesquieu (Charles-Louis de Secondat)

We've had bad luck with children they've all grown up.
      - Christopher Darlington Morley
