Best Quotes about Children
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
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]
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
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.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
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
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
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.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.

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.
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.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
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
