Children

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.
- Ehrenreich, Barbara

Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

2.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

3.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

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

When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

8.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

9.
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

Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

12.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

13.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

14.
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.
Wilder, Thornton

15.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

16.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

Hunt, Leigh

18.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

19.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

20.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

21.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

22.

Juvenal

23.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

24.
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.
Eucharista Ward

25.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

26.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

28.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

29.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

30.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

31.
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.
Gibran, Kahlil

32.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

33.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

34.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

35.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

36.
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.
Spolin, Viola

37.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

38.
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.
Rich, Adrienne

39.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

40.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

41.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

42.
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

43.
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
Adams, John

44.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

45.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

46.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

47.
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

48.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

49.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

50.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal
