Quote by Ken Follett in Fall of Giants (Book quote)
A baby was like a revolution, Grigori thought: you could start one, but you could not control how it would turn out.
Quote by Roald Dahl in Matilda (Book quote)
It's a funny thing about mothers and fathers. Even when their own child is the most disgusting little blister you could ever imagine, they still think that he or she is wonderful.
Quote by Roald Dahl
If my books can help children become readers, then I feel I have accomplished something important.
Quote by Unknown
A truly rich man is one whose children run into his arms, when his hands are empty.
Quote by Johnny Depp
Anything I've done up till May 27th 1999 was kind of an illusion, existing without living. My daughter, the birth of my daughter, gave me life.
Quote from The Little Mermaid, by Sebastian (Movie quote)
Children have got to be free to lead their own lives.
Quote by Walt Disney
Disneyland isn't designed just for children. When does a person stop being a child? Can you say that a child is ever entirely eliminated from an adult?
Quote by Maurice Sendak
Children do live in fantasy and reality; they move back and forth very easily in a way we no longer remember how to do.
Quote by Maurice Sendak
You cannot write for children. They're much too complicated. You can only write books that are of interest to them.
Quote by Albert Einstein
If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.
Quote from Eat Pray Love (Movie quote)
Having a baby is like having a tattoo on your face. You kind of want to be committed.
Quote by Hank Moody from Californication in Season 4 Episode 2 (Series quote)
To my dear beautiful daughter,
I'm writing you a letter. That's right, a good old-fashioned letter. It's a lost art, really. I have a confession to make. I didn't like you very much at first. You were just this annoying, little blob. You smelled nice. Most of the time. But you didn't seem to have much interest in me. Which I, of course, found vaguely insulting.
It was just you and your mom against the world... funny how some things never change. So I cruised along, doing my thing, acting the fool, not really understanding how being a parent changes you. And I don't remember the exact moment everything changed. I just know that it did.
One minute I was impenetrable. Nothing could touch me. The next, my heart was somehow beating outside my chest, exposed to the elements. Loving you has been the most profound, intense, painful experience of my life. In fact, it's been almost too much to bear. As your father, I made a silent vow to protect you from the world, never realizing I was the one who would end up hurting you the most.
When I flash forward, my heart breaks. Mostly because I can't imagine you speaking of me with any sort of pride. How could you? Your father is a child in a man's body. He cares for nothing and everything at the same time. Noble in thought, weak in action. Something has to change. Something has to give. It's getting dark... too dark to see.
Quote from 1.Korinther, 13,11 (Bible verse)
When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
Quote by Reamonn - Through the Eyes of a Child (Lyric)
This life is so complicated, until we see it through the eyes of a child.
Quote by J.M. Barrie
I'm not young enough to know everything.
Quote by Jill Bensley
The most efficient form of birth control I know is spending the day with my kids.
Quote from Star Wars II - Angriff der Klonkrieger, by Yoda (Movie quote)
Truly wonderful the mind of a child is.
Quote by Walt Disney, Deeds rather than words
I don't believe in playing down to children, either in life or in motion pictures. I didn't treat my own youngsters like fragile flowers, and I think no parent should. Children are people, and they should have to reach to learn about things, to understand things, just as adults have to reach if they want to grow in mental stature. Life is composed of lights and shadows, and we would be untruthful, insincere, and saccharine if we tried to pretend there were no shadows. Most things are good, and they are the strongest things; but there are evil things too, and you are not doing a child a favor by trying to shield him from reality. The important thing is to teach a child that good can always triumph over evil, and that is what our pictures attempt to do.
Quote by Walt Disney
I do not make films primarily for children. I make them for the child in all of us, whether we be six or sixty.
