Best Quotes about Children
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
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.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
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
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.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
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.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
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
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
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.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
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.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
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 our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.
Children always turn to the light.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
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.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
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.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
The child is the father of the man.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
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.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
Adults are obsolete children.
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.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
