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.
Best Quotes about Children
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
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.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
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.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Children always turn to the light.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
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.
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.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
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.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Children need models rather than critics.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Adults are obsolete children.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
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 was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
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.
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 our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
