"If your heart overflows with faith and love for God, you will find a thousand and two ways to pass on these feelings to your child." - [[Bishop]] [[Irenaios of Lyons]]
"An important part of a child's education is storytelling, since good stories excite the imagination and strengthen the bond between parent and child. Stories from the [[Bible]] are preferred, and the child should repeat them often, to underscore full comprehension." - St. [[John Chrysostom]]
"For the correct upbringing of your children: few words, much example, and more prayer are necessary." - Father Epiphanios Theodoropoulos, ''Counsels for Life''
"Marriage is more than human. It is a 'microbasileia,' a miniature kingdom which is the little house of the Lord." - St. [[Clement of Alexandria]]

"Fathers and mothers: Go and lead your child by the hand into the Church." - St. [[John Chrysostom]]
"How can there be too many children? That's like saying there are too many flowers." - Mother Teresa, [[Roman Catholic Church|Roman Catholic]] [[Monasticism|nun]]
"With us everything should be secondary compared to our concern with children, and their upbringing in the instruction and teaching of the Lord." - St. [[John Chrysostom]]
