Best Quotes about Children
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
Children are poor men's riches.

Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
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.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
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

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.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
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]
Where children are, there is the golden age.

We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.

Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
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.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
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.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
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
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
The child is the father of the man.
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.
