Children

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.

Best Quotes about Children

We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

Novalis

Cosby, Bill

The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

6.
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.
Klee, Paul

7.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

8.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

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.

10.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

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.

All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

14.
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

15.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

16.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

17.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

18.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

19.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

20.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

21.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

22.
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.
Roosevelt, Theodore

23.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

24.
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

25.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

26.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

28.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

29.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

30.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Rich, Adrienne

31.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

32.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

33.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

34.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

35.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

36.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

37.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

38.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

41.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

Adams, John

A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

48.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying
