Best Quotes about Children
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
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]
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.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
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.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
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.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
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 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.
Never have children, only grand children.
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.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
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.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
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.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
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.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Be gentle with the young.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
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.
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.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
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.
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.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
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.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
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.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
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
