Best Quotes about Children
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
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. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
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.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
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.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
The child is the father of the man.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
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
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
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.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
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 living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
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.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
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
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
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.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
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
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
