When a child asks you something, answer him, for goodness` sake. But don`t make a production of it. Children are children, but they can spot an evasion quicker than adults, an evasion simply muddles `em.

Harper Lee

We must respect the other fellow`s religion but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart.

Henry Louis Mencken

If motherhood has taught me anything, it is that I cannot change my children, I can only change myself. Try as I might, I can’t shape either one of them to my desires or designs, but I can choose, moment by moment and day by day, my own reaction to who they are. So perhaps my real job now, and in the year ahead, isn’t to direct my sons’ lives, but to work on becoming more thoughtful and deliberate about my own.

Katrina Kenison

The truth is, we can’t keep our children safe, all we can do is love them, teach them as best we can, and then trust in their destinies as they embark on their own necessary journeys, out beyond the sheltered shores of childhood.

Katrina Kenison

Nothing you do for children is ever wasted.

Garrison Keillor

The best Mother's Day gift is just knowing that your children are happy and healthy.

Betty Winston Baye

Some of the most memorable mother's day gifts are those gifts which are given, not because it is Mother's Day, but because it is a day when children want to share some new wonder or something special and exciting with you.

Do not read, as children do, to amuse yourself, or like the ambitious, for the purpose of instruction. No, read in order to live.

Gustave Flaubert

There is only one sin, only one. And that is theft. Every other sin is a variation of theft. [...] When you kill a man, you steal a life, [...] you steal his wife`s right to husband, rob his children of a father. When you tell a lie, you steal someone`s right to the truth. When you cheat, you steal the right to fairness.

Khaled Hosseini

Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.

Margaret Mead

Let us take our children seriously! Everything else follows from this... only the best is good enough for a child.

Zoltán Kodály

Children are knives [...]. They don`t mean to, but they cut. And yet we cling to them, don`t we, we clasp them until the blood flows.

Joanne Harris
