Best Quotes about Children

Lois McMaster Bujold
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.

Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
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.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.

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.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
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.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
