Best Quotes about Children
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Children always turn to the light.
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.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
The child is the father of the man.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
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.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.

Howe, Edgar Watson
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]
Be gentle with the young.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.

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.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.

Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
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.
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 completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
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.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
