Best Quotes about Children
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.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
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.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
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.
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]
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.
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.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
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.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
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.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
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.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Children are poor men's riches.
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.
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
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Be gentle with the young.
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.
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
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
