Best Quotes about Children
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
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.

Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
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.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
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
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.

Diana, Princess of Wales
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to.

Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
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.

The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
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.

Dobson, Dr. James C.

La Bruyere, Jean De
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
