Best Quotes about Children
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Be gentle with the young.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
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.
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.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
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.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!

Angier, Bradford Arthur
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
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.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
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.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
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.

Shan, Eda J. Le
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.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
The child is the father of the man.
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.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Adults are obsolete children.
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]
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.
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.

Jones, Franklin P.
