14 Parenting Quotes from Literature

Men of honor will do things for their children that they would never consider doing for themselves. ~ A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin People talk vaguely about the innocence of a little child, but they take mighty good care not to let it out of their sight for twenty minutes. ~ Reginald by Saki Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them. ~ The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde Parents are apt to see no injustice in the fact that they are often annoyed with their offspring for possessing attributes, both of character and appearance, with which they themselves have endowed them. ~ The Rosary by Florence L. Barclay "But a wise parent humours the desire for independent action, so as to become the friend and adviser when his absolute rule shall cease." ~ North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell "The universe," he observed, "makes rather an indifferent parent, I am afraid." ~ Bleak House by Charles Dickens "Grief fills the room up of my absent child,
Lies in his bed, walks up and down with me." ~ King John by William Shakespeare To see their sons and daughters so flushed and healthy and happy, gave them also a reflected glow, and it was hard to say who had most pleasure from the game, those who played or those who watched. ~ Beyond the City by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "If you would have your son to walk honourably through the world, you must not attempt to clear the stones from his path, but teach him to walk firmly over them - not insist upon leading him by the hand, but let him learn to go alone." ~ The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte "I am the only child of parents who weighed, measured, and priced everything; for whom what could not be weighed, measured, and priced, had no existence." ~ Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens
