Best Quotes about Children
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their 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 needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
The child is the father of the man.
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.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Be gentle with the young.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
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
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
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]
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham
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
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
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.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a 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.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
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.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
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.
