Best Quotes about Children
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
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
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
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.
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.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
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.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
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]
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Be gentle with the young.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
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
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.
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.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
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.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
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.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
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.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
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 living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
