Best Quotes about Children
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
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.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
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.
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.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never 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.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
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.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Children always turn to the light.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
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 reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
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.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
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
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
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.
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.
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.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
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.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Be gentle with the young.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
