Best Quotes about Children
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
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
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.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
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.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
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.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Children are poor men's riches.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
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 child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
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]
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
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.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
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
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
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.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
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 takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
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.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
