Best Quotes about Children
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
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.
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.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
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]
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.
Children always turn to the light.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
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.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
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.
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.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
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
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
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.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Adults are obsolete children.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
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
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
The child is the father of the man.
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.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Children are poor men's riches.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
Where children are, there is the golden age.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
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.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
