Best Quotes about Children
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
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.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
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.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
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.
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.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
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.
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
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
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
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.
Children need models rather than critics.
The child is the father of the man.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
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.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
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.
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 enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
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.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
