I think people need to commit to one another before they commit to bringing children into the world because that's the optimum arrangement for children, not to take anything at all away from women who have to rear their children by themselves.

America is a nation fundamentally ambivalent about its children, often afraid of its children, and frequently punitive toward its children.

Children - if you think back really what it was like to be a child and what it was like to know other children - children lie all the time.

Donna Tartt

But when we have families, when we have children, this gives us a purpose for being, to protect our children, to avoid going to jail because if I'm in jail, who looks after my children, who's there for my wife?

Ernie Hudson

I go to Malawi twice a year. It's where two of my children were adopted from, and I have a lot of projects there that I go and check up on and children who I look after. It's sort of a commitment that I've made to this country and the hundreds of thousands of children there who have been orphaned by AIDS.

Madonna Ciccone

When people ask, Do you like children? I always say, I like some children, yes. Some children I don't like.

As I get older, all sorts of things become less funny. Once one has children, any cruelty involving children becomes far less amusing than when one was at the mercy of one's friends' and relatives' children.

P. J. O'Rourke

It's not only children who grow. Parents do too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can't tell my children to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it, myself.

Joyce Maynard

We live in a society today where these children can be wanted children. Even if you don't want to keep this child after you've had it, there's plenty of young couples out there, that want children.

Norma McCorvey

Parents with meager means have the same aspirations for their children as other parents. Children from poor families have the same needs as other children.

I have two children and they're young yet but all of the children that I know really inspire me.

We have come to a turning point in the road. If we turn to the right mayhap our children and our children's children will go that way; but if we turn to the left, generations yet unborn will curse our names for having been unfaithful to God and to His Word.

Charles Spurgeon

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

George Santayana

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.

Maria Callas

My children - in many dimensions they're as poorly behaved as many other children, but at least on this dimension I've got my kids brainwashed: You don't use Google, and you don't use an iPod.
