Best Quotes about Children

Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

2.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

4.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

5.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

6.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

7.
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.
Swift, Jonathan

8.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

9.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

10.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

11.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

12.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

13.
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.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

14.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

15.
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.

16.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

17.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

18.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

19.
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

20.
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.
Canetti, Elias

21.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

22.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

23.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

24.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

25.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

26.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

27.
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.
Friedan, Betty

28.
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.
Jordan, June

29.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

30.
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

31.
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
Adams, John

32.
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.
Wilder, Thornton

33.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Gibran, Kahlil

34.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

35.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

36.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

37.

41.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

42.
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.
Campbell, Beatrix

43.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

44.
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.
Rich, Adrienne

45.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

47.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

48.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

49.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

50.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya
