Then Anna was born, so I had four babies to care for. But we got along very nice till the children got the scarlet fever, that was a hard year but it passed on like all the rest.
      - Grandma Moses, My Life's History

Every generation revolts against its fathers and makes friends with its grandfathers.
      - Lewis Mumford, The Brown Decades

Oh, what a tangled web do parents weave when they think that their children are naive.
      - Ogden Nash

Woman understand children better than man does, but man is more childlike than woman.
      - Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

A child's eyes, those clear wells of undefiled thought--what on earth can be more beautiful? Full of hope, love and curiosity, they meet your own. In prayer, how earnest; in joy, how sparkling; in sympathy, how tender! The man who never tried the companionship of a little child has carelessly passed by one of the great pleasures of life, as one passes a rare flower without plucking it or knowing its value.
      - Lady Caroline Sheridan Norton (Caroline Elizabeth Sarah Norton)

Fragile beginnings of a mighty end.
      - Lady Caroline Sheridan Norton (Caroline Elizabeth Sarah Norton)

I can endure a melancholy man, but not a melancholy child; the former, in whatever slough he may sink, can raise his eyes either to the kingdom of reason or of hope; but the little child is entirely absorbed and weighed down by one black poison-drop of the present.
      - Lady Caroline Sheridan Norton (Caroline Elizabeth Sarah Norton)

Thine was the shout! the song! the burst of joy!
  Which sweet from childhood's rosy lip resoundeth;
    Thine was the eager spirit nought could cloy,
      And the glad heart from which all grief reboundeth.
      - Lady Caroline Sheridan Norton (Caroline Elizabeth Sarah Norton)

Where children are, there is the golden age.
      - Novalis (pseudonym of Frederich Leopold von Hardenberg)

The plays of natural lively children are the infancy of art. Children live in a world of imagination and feeling. They invest the most insignificant object with any form they please, and see in it whatever they wish to see.
      - Adam Gottlob Oehlenschlager

Truly there is nothing in the world so blessed or so sweet as the heritage of children.
      - Margaret Oliphant

Each generation imagines itself to be more intelligent than the one that went before it, and wiser than the one that comes after it.
      - George Orwell (pseudonym of Eric Blair)

And yet we check and chide
  The airy angels as they float about us,
    With rules of so-called wisdom, till they grow
      The same tame slaves to custom and the world.
      - Frances Sargent Osgood

Children blessings seem, but torments are.
      - Thomas Otway

I seem, for my own part, to see the benevolence of the Deity more clearly in the pleasures of very young children than in anything else in the world.
      - William Paley, Archdeacon of Saragossa

Above all things endeavor to breed them up the love of virtue, and that holy plain way of it which we have lived in, that the world in no part of it get into my family. I had rather they we're homely than finely bred as to outward behavior; yet I love sweetness mixed with gravity, and cheerfulness tempered with sobriety.
      - William Penn

Men are generally more careful of the breed of their horses and dogs than of their children.
      - William Penn

Nature makes boys and girls lovely to look upon so they can be tolerated until they acquire some sense.
      - William Lyon Phelps

As soft wax is apt to take the stamp of the seal, so are the minds of young children to receive the instruction imprinted on them.
      - Plutarch

Living jewels, dropped unstained from heaven.
      - Robert Pollok

If a man leaves children behind him, it is as if he did not die.
      - Proverb, (Moroccan)

Be very vigilant over thy child in the April of his understanding, lest the frost of May nip his blossoms. While he is a tender twig, straighten him; whilst he is a new vessel, season him; such as thou makest him, such commonly shall thou find him. Let his first lesson be obedience and his second shall be what thou wilt.
      - Francis Quarles

That season of childhood, when the soul, on the rainbow bridge of fancy, glides along, dry-shod, over the walls and ditches of this lower earth.
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul)

The clew of our destiny, wander where we will, lies at the cradle foot.
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul)

The smallest children are nearest to God, as the smallest planets are nearest the sun.
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul)
