Best Quotes about Children

1.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

2.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

3.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

4.
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.
Tracy, Brian

5.
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.
Updike, John

6.
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.
Meynell, Alice

7.
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.
Larkin, Philip

8.
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.
Keillor, Garrison

9.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

10.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

11.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

12.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

13.
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.
Taylor, Jeremy

14.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

15.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

16.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

17.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

18.
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

19.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

20.
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.
Ruskin, John

21.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

22.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

23.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

24.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

25.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

26.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

27.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

28.
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.
Cox, Marcelene

29.
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

30.
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.
Greg Garcia

31.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

32.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

33.
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
Adams, John

34.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

35.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

36.
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

37.

Bible

38.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

39.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

40.
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.
Orwell, George

41.
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.
Cosby, Bill

42.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

43.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

44.
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

45.
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.
Lamb, Charles

46.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.

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.
Fran Lebowitz

49.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

50.
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.
