Best Quotes about Children
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
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
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.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
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.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
The child is the father of the man.

What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
Never have children, only grand children.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.

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.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
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
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
