Best Quotes about Children
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
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.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
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.
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.
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.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Adults are obsolete children.
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.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Children need models rather than critics.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
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]
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.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
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.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
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.
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
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.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
