There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Best Quotes about Children
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
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.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
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]
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
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.
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.
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
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
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
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
The wildest colts make the best horses.
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.
Never have children, only grand children.
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.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
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.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Children always turn to the light.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
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.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
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.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
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.
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.
