When I was a child, my father taught me to put up my fists like a boy and to be prepared to defend myself at all times.
Christmas to a child is the first terrible proof that to travel hopefully is better than to arrive.
My parents told me that children were taken from their families in 1941, and my mother had a child taken from her - with the goal of saving him.
I've got some news... I'm delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together. I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we're over the moon.
Because everyone is someone's child, every woman seems like someone's mother.
To me in my childhood, elves and fairies of all sorts were very real things, and my dolls were as really children as I was myself a child.
Tyra the businesswoman is very close to - and I hate third person, but you said it, oh, chiiild, you said it - but me the businessperson and me the person: very similar. I can be in a business meeting and be all 'Wooo!' and 'Oh, child!' and still be talking revenues and profits and cash flows.
I think if you follow anyone home, whether they live in Houston or London, and you sit at their dinner table and talk to them about their mother who has cancer or their child who is struggling in school, and their fears about watching their lives go by, I think we're all the same.
A child, like your stomach, doesn't need all you can afford to give it.
Frank A. Clark
A child's mind is its living room; it's is going to be residing there for the rest of its earthly existence.
Countries with higher levels of gender equality have higher economic growth. Companies with more women on their boards have higher returns. Peace agreements that include women are more successful. Parliaments with more women take up a wider range of issues - including health, education, anti-discrimination, and child support.
When we believe that God is Father, we also believe that such a father's hand will never cause his child a needless tear. We may not understand life any better, but we will not resent life any longer.
It is impossible to treat a child too well. Children are spoiled by being ignored too much or by harshness, not by kindness.
Yet, when child sex offenders are brought to justice and serve time for their offenses, they are often released into unsuspecting communities and left free to resume their sexual attacks.
Even as a child, I knew what I didn't want. I didn't want to wear red lipstick.
The worst thing you can do to a child, and I've seen it happen so many times, is the silver spoon.
Classical - perhaps I should say 'orchestral' - music is so digital, so cut up, rhythmically, pitchwise and in terms of the roles of the musicians. It's all in little boxes. The reason you get child prodigies in chess, arithmetic, and classical composition is that they are all worlds of discontinuous, parceled-up possibilities.
In the 19th century, a lot of people were against outlawing child labour, because to do so would be against the very foundations of a free market economy: 'These children want to work, these people want to employ them... what is your problem? It's not as if anyone has kidnapped them...'
I'm the person that I always was, but in terms of how I approach my living, I'm not the same person at all. At all. I've buried a child, I've ended a marriage, and the grandson that I was raising is now grown. My family has totally shifted.
I might run from her for a thousand years and she is still my baby child. Our love is so furious that we burn each other out.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Pearl S. Buck
I think someone should explain to the child that it's OK to make mistakes. That's how we learn. When we compete, we make mistakes.
Being a father at a later age is different from when I had my other two daughters when I was in my 20s and 30s. If you're in your 60s and you're with the kid every day, you're dealing with the mind of a child, so it opens up that childishness in you again.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
When I stopped seeing my mother through the eyes of a child, I saw the woman who helped me give birth to myself.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
C. S. Lewis
