Famous quotes containing the word children:

    Not only do our wives need support, but our children need our deep involvement in their lives. If this period [the early years] of primitive needs and primitive caretaking passes without us, it is lost forever. We can be involved in other ways, but never again on this profoundly intimate level.
    Augustus Y. Napier (20th century)

    upon these maxims meditate:
    All women dote upon an idle man
    Although their children need a rich estate;
    No man has ever lived that had enough
    Of children’s gratitude or woman’s love.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    If we have come to think that the nursery and the kitchen are the natural sphere of a woman, we have done so exactly as English children come to think that a cage is the natural sphere of a parrot: because they have never seen one anywhere else.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
