Best Quotes about Children
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
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.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
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.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Never have children, only grand children.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
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
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
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.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
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
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
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.
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
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
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.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
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.
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]
The wildest colts make the best horses.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
