Best Quotes about Children
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
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.
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.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Be gentle with the young.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
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.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
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.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
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.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
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.
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.
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.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Children need models rather than critics.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
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.
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
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
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.
