Best Quotes about Children

My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

3.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

4.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

7.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

8.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

9.
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.

10.
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.

Children always turn to the light.

Gray, Thomas

16.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

17.
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.
Roosevelt, Theodore

18.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

19.
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.
Spolin, Viola

20.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

21.
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.

Dick Cavett

23.
Children are all foreigners.

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.
Angelou, Maya

25.

Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

26.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

27.
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.
Davis, Bette

28.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

29.
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.
Rutherford, Samuel

30.
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.
Cosby, Bill

31.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

32.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

33.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

34.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

35.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

Keillor, Garrison

37.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
