Best Quotes about Children
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
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.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
Never have children, only grand children.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
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
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
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.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
The wildest colts make the best horses.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
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]
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
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 are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
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.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Adults are obsolete children.
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.
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.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
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.
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 need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
