Best Quotes about Children
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Adults are obsolete children.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
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 wildest colts make the best horses.
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.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
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
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.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
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
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
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.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
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.
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.
Be gentle with the young.
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.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
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.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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 also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
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 a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold
