Best Quotes about Children
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
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]
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
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.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
Children are poor men's riches.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
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 completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Never have children, only grand children.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
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.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
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.
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
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
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.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
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.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
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.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
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.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
Adults are obsolete children.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
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.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.

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.

Where children are, there is the golden age.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
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 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.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
