Best Quotes about Children
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
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
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.
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.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
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.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
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.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
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.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
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
A child is fed with milk and praise.

Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
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.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Be gentle with the young.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
The child is the father of the man.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
