Best Quotes about Children

1.
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]
Bible

2.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

3.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

4.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

5.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

6.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

7.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

8.
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.
Jordan, June

9.
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

10.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

11.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

12.
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.
Swift, Jonathan

13.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

14.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

15.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

16.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

17.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

18.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

19.
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.
FeNelon, Francois

20.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

21.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

22.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

23.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

24.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

25.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

26.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

27.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

28.
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.
Canetti, Elias

29.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

30.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

31.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

32.
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.
Landers, Ann

33.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

34.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

35.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

36.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

37.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

38.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

Gray, Thomas

43.
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.
Anna Quindlen

44.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

45.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

46.
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

47.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

48.
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.

The child is the father of the man.
