Best Quotes about Children
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
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.
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.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
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.
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.
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
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
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.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never 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]
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
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.
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]
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
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.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
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.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
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.
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.
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.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
