Best Quotes about Children
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
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.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
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.
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
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.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Children are poor men's riches.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
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.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
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.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
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.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
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.
