Best Quotes about Children
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
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.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
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.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
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.
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.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
Adults are obsolete children.
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.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
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.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
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.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
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.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Children are the keys of paradise.

Curie, Madame Marie
