Best Quotes about Children
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
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]
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
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.
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.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
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.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
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.
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]
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
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.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Be gentle with the young.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
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.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
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.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
