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.
Best Quotes about Children
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
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.

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.
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.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Children need models rather than critics.
Children are poor men's riches.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
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.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
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.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
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]
Never have children, only grand children.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
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.

Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.

There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Children always turn to the light.
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
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
