Best Quotes about Children
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
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.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
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.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
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
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
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
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.
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]
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
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.
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.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
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.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
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.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
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.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
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.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
