When we are no longer children we are already dead.
I love working with children and this young boy, Thomas Sangster, is quite a remarkable young actor. He raises your game, you know. He certainly raised mine.
Children are the anchors of a mother's life.
For children preserve the fame of a man after his death.
There is a Providence that protects idiots, drunkards, children and the United States of America.
When you are getting ready to become a mom, being in love with someone just isn't enough. You need to think about whether he would be a good parent and raise your children with similar beliefs.
As the mother teaches her children how to express themselves in their language, so one Gypsy musician teaches the other. They have never shown any need for notation.
Books, the children of the brain.
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.
My life before children I don't really remember. I've heard references to it, but I really don't remember.

I think that the only way to teach is by example, as children will more easily follow what they see you do than what you tell them to do.
Often and often afterwards, the beloved Aunt would ask me why I had never told anyone how I was being treated. Children tell little more than animals, for what comes to them they accept as eternally established.
A mother's arms are made of tenderness and children sleep soundly in them.
It is good to realize that if love and peace can prevail on earth, and if we can teach our children to honor nature's gifts, the joys and beauties of the outdoors will be here forever.

Under these conditions it is not astonishing that learning was highly prized; in fact, my parents made sacrifices to be able to give their children a good education.
Children are smarter than any of us. Know how I know that? I don't know one child with a full time job and children.
Let America first praise mediocrity even, in her children, before she praises... the best excellence in the children of any other land.
