Best Quotes about Children
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.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
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 are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
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.
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.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
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
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
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.
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.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
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]
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
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.
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
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
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 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.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
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.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
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 are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
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.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
