Best Quotes about Children
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
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]
Never have children, only grand children.
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.
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 are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
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.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Adults are obsolete children.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
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.
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.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
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.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
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.
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.
