children

The Founding Fathers in their wisdom decided that children were an unnatural strain on parents. So they provided jails called schools, equipped with tortures called an education.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A man who gives his children habits of industry provides for them better than by giving them fortune.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All of us have to recognize that we owe our children more than we have been giving them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There must be a law against forcing children to perform at an early age. Children should have a wonderful childhood. They should not be given too much responsibility.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Rarely is the questioned asked: Is our children learning?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

God is Love, we are taught as children to believe. But when we first begin to get some inkling of how He loves us, we are repelled; it seems so cold, indeed, not love at all as we understand the word.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
He that hath wife and children hath given hostages to fortune; for they are impediments to great enterprises, either of virtue or mischief.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Men fear death as children fear to go in the dark; and as that natural fear in children is increased with tales, so is the other.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What our children have to fear is not the cars on the highways of tomorrow but our own pleasure in calculating the most elegant parameters of their deaths.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You see much more of your children once they leave home.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The distinction between children and adults, while probably useful for some purposes, is at bottom a specious one, I feel. There are only individual egos, crazy for love.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The best inheritance a parent can give his children is a few minutes of his time each day.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is nothing funny about Halloween. This sarcastic festival reflects, rather, an infernal demand for revenge by children on the adult world.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If there is a species which is more maltreated than children, then it must be their toys, which they handle in an incredibly off-hand manner. Toys are thus the end point in that long chain in which all the conditions of despotic high-handedness are in play which enchain beings one to another, from one species to another --cruel divinities to their sacrificial victims, from masters to slaves, from adults to children, and from children to their objects.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is no doubt that God has often brought a certain verse to the attention of one of His children in an unusual and almost miraculous manner, for a special need, but the Word was never intended to be consulted in a superstitious manner.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Fathers and mothers have lost the idea that the highest aspiration they might have for their children is for them to be wise... specialized competence and success are all that they can imagine.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We say that a girl with her doll anticipates the mother. It is more true, perhaps, that most mothers are still but children with playthings.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The actor searches vainly for the sound of a vanished tradition, and critic and audience follow suit. We have lost all sense of ritual and ceremony -- whether it be connected with Christmas, birthdays or funerals -- but the words remain with us and old impulses stir in the marrow. We feel we should have rituals, we should do something about getting them and we blame the artists for not finding them for us. So the artist sometimes attempts to find new rituals with only his imagination as his source: he imitates the outer form of ceremonies, pagan or baroque, unfortunately adding his own trapping -- the result is rarely convincing. And after the years and years of weaker and waterier imitations we now find ourselves rejecting the very notion of a holy stage. It is not the fault of the holy that it has become a middle-class weapon to keep the children good.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Women know the way to rear up children (to be just). They know a simple, merry, tender knack of tying sashes, fitting baby-shoes, and stringing pretty words that make no sense. And kissing full sense into empty words.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We are supposed to be the children of Seth; but Seth is too much of an effete nonentity to deserve ancestral regard. No, we are the sons of Cain, and with violence can be associated the attacks on sound, stone, wood and metal that produced civilization.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The first duty to children is to make them happy, If you have not made them so, you have wronged them, No other good they may get can make up for that.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The most important thing that parents can teach their children is how to get along without them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
How inimitably graceful children are in general before they learn to dance!More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Parents are often so busy with the physical rearing of children that they miss the glory of parenthood, just as the grandeur of the trees is lost when raking leaves.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
At least the Pilgrim Fathers used to shoot Indians: the Pilgrim Children merely punch time clocks.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is hardly surprising that children should enthusiastically start their education at an early age with the Absolute Knowledge of computer science; while they are unable to read, for reading demands making judgments at every line. Conversation is almost dead, and soon so too will be those who knew how to speak.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I will fight for my children on any level so they can reach their potential as human beings and in their public duties.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Get over the idea that only children should spend their time in study. Be a student so long as you still have something to learn, and this will mean all your life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The most winning woman I ever knew was hanged for poisoning three little children for their insurance-money, and the most repellent man of my acquaintance is a philanthropist who has spent nearly a quarter of a million upon the London poor.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Men are but children of a larger growth, Our appetites as apt to change as theirs, And full as craving too, and full as vain.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
So long as little children are allowed to suffer, there is no true love in this world.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Education ought everywhere to be religious education. Parents are bound to employ no instructors who will instruct their children religiously. To commit children to the care of irreligious persons is to commit lambs to the superintendency of wolves.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Let your children go if you want to keep them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The world men inhabit is rather bleak. It is a world full of doubt and confusion, where vulnerability must be hidden, not shared; where competition, not co-operation, is the order of the day; where men sacrifice the possibility of knowing their own children and sharing in their upbringing, for the sake of a job they may have chosen by chance, which may not suit them and which in many cases dominates their lives to the exclusion of much else.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To nourish and raise children against odds is in any time, any place, more valuable than to fix bolts in cars or design nuclear weapons.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The direct use of force is such a poor solution to any problem, it is generally employed only by small children and large nations.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Parents are usually more careful to bestow knowledge on their children rather than virtue, the art of speaking well rather than doing well; but their manners should be of the greatest concern.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
How vainly shall we endeavor to repress crime by our barbarous punishment of the poorer class of criminals so long as children are reared in the brutalizing influences of poverty, so long as the bite of want drives men to crime.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Unlike grown ups, children have little need to deceive themselves.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
She who makes her husband and her children happy, who reclaims the one from vice, and trains up the other to virtue, is a much greater character than the ladies described in romance, whose whole occupation is to murder mankind with shafts from their quiver or their eyes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To me heaven would be a big bull ring with me holding two barrera seats and a trout stream outside that no one else was allowed to fish in and two lovely houses in the town; one where I would have my wife and children and be monogamous and love them truly and well and the other where I would have my nine beautiful mistresses on nine different floors.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Education at school continues what has been done at home: it crystallizes the optical illusion, consolidates it with book learning, theoretically legitimizes the traditional trash and trains the children to know without understanding and to accept denominations for definitions. Astray in his conceptions, entangled in words, man loses the flair for truth, the taste for nature. What a powerful intellect must you possess, to be suspicious of this moral carbon dioxide and with your head swimming already, to hurl yourself out of it into the fresh air, with which, into the bargain, everyone round is trying to scare you!More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Cherish you visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul; the blue prints of your ultimate achievements.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
