Best Quotes about Children
Children need models rather than critics.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Never have children, only grand children.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
Never have children, only grandchildren.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
Children are poor men's riches.
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.
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.
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.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
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.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
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
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
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
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
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.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
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.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Adults are obsolete children.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
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]
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
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.
