Best Quotes about Children
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
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.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Never have children, only grand children.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
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's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
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.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
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.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
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.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
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 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.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
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.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Children always turn to the light.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
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.
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.
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.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
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
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.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
