Best Quotes about Children
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
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
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Be gentle with the young.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
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
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.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
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.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
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 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.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
The child is the father of the man.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Children are poor men's riches.
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.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
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.
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.
