Best Quotes about Children
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
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.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Adults are obsolete children.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
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.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
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.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
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
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
Children are poor men's riches.
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.
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.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
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.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
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.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
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.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
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
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
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.
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 may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
