Best Quotes about Children
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
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.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
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.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
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
Children always turn to the light.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
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.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
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.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
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.
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.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
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.
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
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
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
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Children are poor men's riches.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
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.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
The child is the father of the man.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
