Children always turn to the light.
Best Quotes about Children
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
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.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
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.
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.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
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.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
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.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
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.
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.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
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.
Children need models rather than critics.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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]
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.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
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
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
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.
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.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
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
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
