Best Quotes about Children
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.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
Children need models rather than critics.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
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.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
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.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
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 little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
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.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
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.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
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.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
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.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
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.
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.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
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.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the 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 not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
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.
