Best Quotes about 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.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
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.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
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
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
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.
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
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
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.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.

Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.

Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
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.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

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.
