Best Quotes about Children
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
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.
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.
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.

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.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
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.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
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.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Adults are obsolete children.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.

How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
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.
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.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
