Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

3.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

4.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

5.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

6.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

7.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

8.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

9.
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

10.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

11.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

12.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Rich, Adrienne

13.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

14.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

15.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

16.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

17.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

18.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

19.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

20.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

21.
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.
Jordan, June

22.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

23.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

24.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

25.
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

26.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

27.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Klee, Paul

28.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

29.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

30.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

31.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

32.
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.
Canetti, Elias

33.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

34.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

35.
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.
Josh Lieb

36.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

37.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

38.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

39.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

40.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

41.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

42.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

43.
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.
Ruskin, John

44.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

45.
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.
Greer, Germaine

46.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

47.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

48.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

49.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

50.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
