In love to our wives there is desire, to our sons there is ambition; but in that to our daughters there is something which there are no words to express.
      - Joseph Addison

Of all hardness of heart there is none so inexcusable as that of parents toward their children. An obstinate, inflexible, unforgiving temper is odious upon all occasions; but here it is unnatural.
      - Joseph Addison

They all disowned their parents long ago, the way you are supposed to.
      - Margaret Atwood

The joys of parents are secret, and so are their griefs and fears; they cannot utter the one, nor they will not utter the other. Children sweeten labors, but they make misfortunes more bitter; increase the cares of life, but they mitigate the remembrance of death.
      - Francis Bacon

There is no friendship, no love, like that of the parent for the child.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
      - Bible, Exodus (ch. XX, v. 12)

Does not nature for the child prepare the parent's love, the tender nurse's care?
      - Sir Richard Blackmore

Parents, to their offspring blind,
  Consult nor parts, nor turn of mind;
    But, ev'n in infancy, decree
      What this, what t'other son shall be.
      - John Gay

A suspicious parent makes an artful child.
      - Thomas Chandler Haliburton (used pseudonym Sam Slick)

In general those parents have the most reverence who most deserve it; for he that lives well cannot be despised.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Nothing has a stronger influence psychologically on their environment, and especially on their children, than the unlived lives of the parents.
      - Carl Gustav Jung

I suppose that every parent loves his child; but I know without any supposing, that in a large number of homes the love is hidden behind authority, or its expression is crowded out by daily duties and cares.
      - Abbott E. Kittredge

With joy the parent loves to trace
  Resemblance in his children's face:
    And, as he forms their docile youth
      To walk the steady paths of truth,
        Observes them shooting into men,
          And lives in them life o'er again.
      - Robert Lloyd

They have taken the care and upbringing of children out of the hands of parents, where it belongs, and thrown it upon a gang of irresponsible and unintelligent quacks.
      - Henry Louis Mencken

Parents were invented to make children happy by giving them something to ignore.
      - Ogden Nash

Next to God, thy parents.
      - William Penn

Honor thy parents to prolong thy end.
      - Thomas Randolph

Whoever makes his father's heart to bleed,
  Shall have a child that will revenge the deed.
      - Thomas Randolph

Parents lend children their experience and a vicarious memory; children endow their parents with a vicarious immortality.
      - George Santayana

How pleasant it is for a father to sit at his child's board. It is like the aged man reclining under the shadow of the oak which he has planted.
      - Sir Walter Scott

The voice of parents is the voice of gods, for to their children they are heaven's lieutenants.
      - William Shakespeare

Some corrupt in their morals as vice could make them, have yet been solicitous to have their children soberly, virtuously, and piously brought up.
      - Bishop Robert South

It is the most beautiful object the eyes of man can behold to see a man of worth and his son live in an entire, unreserved correspondence.
      - Sir Richard Steele

The most indifferent thing has its force and beauty when it is spoken by a kind father, and an insignificant trifle has its weight when offered by a dutiful child.
      - Sir Richard Steele

Children, honor your parents in your hearts; bear them not only awe and respect, but kindness and affection: love their persons, fear to do anything that may justly provoke them; highly esteem them as the instruments under God of your being: for "Ye shall fear every man his mother and his father."
      - Jeremy Taylor
