Best Quotes about Children
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Children need models rather than critics.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
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.
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.
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.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never 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.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
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.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
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
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
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.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
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.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Children are poor men's riches.
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]
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
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.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
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
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
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.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
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.
