Best Quotes about Children
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
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.
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
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
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.
Children need models rather than critics.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
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.
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.
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.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
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.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
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.
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
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
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.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
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
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.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
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.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
