Best Quotes about Children
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
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.
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 a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
Adults are obsolete children.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
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.
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.
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.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
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.
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.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
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.
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 child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
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
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.
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.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
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.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
