Best Quotes about Children
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.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
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.
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.
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.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
The child is the father of the man.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Children always turn to the light.
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.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Be gentle with the young.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
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.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
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.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Adults are obsolete children.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
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.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
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.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
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
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
