Best Quotes about Children
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
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
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
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
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.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
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 need models rather than critics.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
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.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
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
Be gentle with the young.
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.
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.
Never have children, only grand children.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
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.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
