Children quotes
Children
Our deeds are like children that are born to us;they live and act apart from our own will.

- George Eliot
If we reason, we would be understood; if we imagine, we would that the airy children of our brain were born anew within another s; if we feel, we would that another's nerves should vibrate to our own, that the beams of their eyes should kindle at once and mix and melt into our own, that lips of motionless ice should not reply to lips quivering and burning with the heart's best blood. This is Love.

- Shelley, Percy Bysshe
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.

- Roosevelt, Theodore
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework - an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.

- Betty Friedan
Our virtues are dearer to us the more we have had to suffer for them. It is the same with our children. All profound affection entertains a sacrifice. Our thoughts are often worse than we are, just as they are often better.

- Eliot, George
Convince an enemy, convince him that he's wrong. To win a bloodless battle, the victory is long. A simple act of faith, reason over might. To blow up his children would only prove him right.

- Sumner, Gordon
O Grub Street! how do I bemoan thee, whose graceless children scorn to own thee! . Yet thou hast greater cause to be ashamed of them, than they of thee.

- Swift, Jonathan
The training of children is a profession, where we must know how to waste time in order to save it

- Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.

- Peter Ustinov
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?

- Epictetus
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.

- Mead, Margaret
Innately, children seem to have little true realistic anxiety. They will run along the brink of water, climb on the window sill, play with sharp objects and with fire, in short, do everything that is bound to damage them and to worry those in charge of them, that is wholly the result of education; for they cannot be allowed to make the instructive experiences themselves.

- Sigmund Freud
Happiness lies in being privileged to work hard for long hours in doing whatever you think is worth doing. One man may find happiness in supporting a wife and children. Another may find it in robbing banks. Still another may labor mightily for years in pursuing pure research with no discernible result. Note the individual and subjective nature of each case. No two are alike and there is no reason to expect them to be. Each man or woman must find for himself or herself that occupation in which hard work and long hours make him or her happy. Contrariwise, if you are looking for shorter hours and longer vacations and early retirement, you are in the wrong job. Perhaps you need to take up bank robbing. Or geeking in a sideshow. Or even politics.

- Heinlein, Robert
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.

- Fran Lebowitz
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.

- Larkin, Philip
The best inheritance a parent can give to his children is a few minutes of their time each day.

- M. Grundler
A woman has got to be able to say, and not feel guilty,'Who am I, and what do I want out of life?'She mustn't feel selfish and neurotic if she wants goals of her own, outside of husband and children.

- Betty Friedan
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.

- Bruce Barton
It is very difficult to know people and I don't think one can ever really know any but one's own countrymen. For men and women are not only themselves; they are also the region in which they are born, the city apartment or the farm in which they learnt to walk, the games they played as children, the old wives'tales they overheard, the food they ate, the schools they attended, the sports they followed, the poets they read, and the God they believed in. It is all these things that have made them what they are, and these are the things that you can't come to know by hearsay, you can only know them if you have lived them.

- W. Somerset Maugham
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
