Best Quotes about Children
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
The child is the father of the man.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
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 is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
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.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
Children always turn to the light.
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.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
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.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
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.
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
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
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.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
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.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
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.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
