Best Quotes about 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.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Children are poor men's riches.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
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
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
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.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
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.
The child is the father of the man.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
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.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
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
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
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
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
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.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Be gentle with the young.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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.
