Best Quotes about Children

1.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

2.
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

3.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

4.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

5.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

6.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

7.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

8.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

9.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

10.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

11.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

12.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

13.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

14.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

15.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

16.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

17.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

18.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

19.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

20.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

21.
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.

22.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

23.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

24.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

25.
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

26.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

27.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

28.
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

29.
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.

30.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

31.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

32.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

33.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

34.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

35.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

36.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

37.
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

38.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

39.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

41.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

42.
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.
Fran Lebowitz

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

45.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.

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.
Cox, Marcelene

47.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

48.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

49.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

50.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John
