Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Best Quotes about Children
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
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.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
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 child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Adults are obsolete children.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
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
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
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
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
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.
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.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
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.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
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]
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.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
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.
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.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
