Best Quotes about Children
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.
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
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
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.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
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.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
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.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
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.
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
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.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
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]
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.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
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.
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.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
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.
Children are poor men's riches.
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
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]
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.
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.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
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 our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
