Best Quotes about Children
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
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.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
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
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
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
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.

There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
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 and drunks always speak the truth.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
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
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
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 reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Children need models rather than critics.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
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.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
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.
