Best Quotes about Children
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
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.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
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.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
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.
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.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
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 the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
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.
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.
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
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
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.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
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.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
