Best Quotes about Children
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
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.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Children always turn to the light.
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.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
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.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
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.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
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.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
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.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
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.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
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.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
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]
The child is the father of the man.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
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
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.
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
Where children are, there is the golden age.
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.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
