Best Quotes about Children
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
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.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience.

Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
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.

Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
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.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
