Best Quotes about Children
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Children need models rather than critics.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
