Best Quotes about Children

Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
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.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.

If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]

Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
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.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
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.
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

Antoine de Saint-Exupery
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
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
Children need models rather than critics.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.

No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
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.
