Best Quotes about Children
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
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.
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.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The wildest colts make the best horses.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with 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.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Children always turn to the light.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
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.
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.
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
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
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]
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
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.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
Never have children, only grand children.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Children are poor men's riches.
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
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
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.
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.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
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
