Best Quotes about Children
Adults are obsolete children.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
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
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.
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.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
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.
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
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
The child is the father of the man.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
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.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
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.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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.
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.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
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.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
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.
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.
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.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
