Best Quotes about Children
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
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.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
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.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
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
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
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.
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.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
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.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
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.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
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.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
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.

You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
