Jill Churchill

The first half of our lives is ruined by our parents, and the second half by our children.
Clarence Darrow

If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

A mother is not a person to lean on but a person to make leaning unnecessary.
Dorothy C. Fisher

The art of mothering is to teach the art of living to children.
Elain Heffner

That’s sort of a cliché about parents. We all believe that our children are the most beautiful children in the world. But the thing is, what no one really talks about is the fact that we all really believe it.
Heather Armstrong

The central struggle of parenthood is to let our hopes for our children outweigh our fears.
Ellen Goodman

The gods visit the sins of the fathers upon the children.
Euripides

Some men just aren't cut out for paternity. Better they should realize it before and not after they become responsible for a son.
Lois McMaster Bujold

My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it.
Mark Twain

Parents were invented to make children happy by giving them something to ignore.
Ogden Nash

There is…nothing to suggest that mothering cannot be shared by several people.
H. R. Schaffer

The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

Some are kissing mothers and some are scolding mothers, but it is love just the same.
Pearl Buck

My father hated radio and could not wait for television to be invented so he could hate that too.
Peter De Vries

Most turkeys taste better the day after; my mother's tasted better the day before.
Rita Rudner

There are times when parenthood seems nothing more than feeding the hand that bites you.
Peter De Vries

Neurotics build castles in the air, psychotics live in them. My mother cleans them.
Rita Rudner

The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

What children take from us, they give…We become people who feel more deeply, question more deeply, hurt more deeply, and love more deeply.
Sonia Taitz
