Best Quotes about Children
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
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.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Be gentle with the young.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
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.
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.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
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.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
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
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
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.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
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.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
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.
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's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
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.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
Adults are obsolete children.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Never have children, only grand children.
