Famous quotes containing the word children:

    Therefore, as necessarily we protect our children from harm, we are nevertheless not too quick to come between them and a negative experience from which they can safely learn something on their own.
    Polly Berrien Berends (20th century)

    Our thoughts are always elsewhere; we are stayed and supported by the hope for a better life, or by the hope that our children will turn out well, or that our name will be famous in the future, or that we shall escape the evils of this life, or that vengeance threatens those who are the cause of our death.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)

    It comes down to a doubt about the wisdom
    Of having children after having had them,
    So there is nothing we can do about it
    But warn the children they perhaps should have none.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
