Best Quotes about Children
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with 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.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
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
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.
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.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
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.
The child is the father of the man.
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
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.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Children are poor men's riches.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
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.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
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.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
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.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
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.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Children need models rather than critics.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
