Best Quotes about Children
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
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.
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.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.

You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
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.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
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.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
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.
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
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
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.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
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.
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.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
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.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
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]
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
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
