Best Quotes about Children
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.
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.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
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.
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.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never 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
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
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.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
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 little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
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.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
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.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
Never have children, only grand children.
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.
Children always turn to the light.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
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.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
