Can't Live With Them, Can't Live Without Them

For A Thought for Thursday this week I found lots of quotes about children and childhood. They are oh, so true. They speak to my soul. So here is a whole conglomeration of quotes all about those little devils we call our future, our angels, our children.

"I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough book shelves."
Anna Quindlen
"The first half of our lives is ruined by our parents, the second half by our children."
Clarence Darrow
"You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers."
John Plomp

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

"The child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five."
Groucho Marx

"Facing a mirror you see merely your own continence; facing your child you finally understand how every one else has seen you."
Daniel Raeburn
"I have found the best way to advise your child is to find out what they want and then advise them to do it."
Harry S. Truman

That Raeburn quote is so true that it's scary.

Love all these.
