The debt of gratitude we owe our mother and father goes forward, not backward. What we owe our parents is the bill presented to us by our children.
Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind.
Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children.
For the mother is and must be, whether she knows it or not, the greatest, strongest and most lasting teacher her children have.
Age merely shows what children we remain.
Thatís sort of a clichÈ about parents. We all believe that our children are the most beautiful children in the world. But the thing is, what no one really talks about is the fact that we all really believe it.
Children are natural mimics who act like their parents despite every effort to teach them good manners
Where parents do too much for their children, the children will not do much for themselves.
Cherish your visions and your dreams, as they are the children of your soul, the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.
We must make the world honest before we can honestly say to our children that honesty is the best policy
Christmas! The very word brings joy to our hearts. No matter how we may dread the rush, the long Christmas lists for gifts and cards to be bought and given--when Christmas Day comes there is still the same warm feeling we had as children, the same warmth that enfolds our hearts and our homes.--
Children need love, especially when they do not deserve it.
Children have but little charity for one another's defects
Children aren't happy without something to ignore, And that's what parents were created for
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires
A truly rich man is one whose children run into his arms when his hands are empty.
Those who educate children well are more to be honored than parents, for these only gave life, those the art of living well.
I am a teacher. A teacher is someone who leads. There is no magic here. I do not walk on water, I do not part the sea. I just love children.
Parents should conduct their arguments in quiet, respectful tones, but in a foreign language. You'd be surprised what an inducement that is to the education of children
Influencing people is dangerous. Their acts and thoughts become your illegitimate children. You can't get away from them and Heaven knows what they mayn't grow up into.
The golf links lie so near the mill, That almost every day, The laboring children can look out, And watch the men at play
There is nothing funny about Halloween. This sarcasticd festival reflects, rather, an infernal demand for revenge by children on the adult world.
If nature had arranged that husbands and wives should have children alternatively, there would never be more than three in a family
Too often we give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
When I see children, I see the face of God. That's why I love them so much. That's what I see.
