Best Quotes about Children
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Adults are obsolete children.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
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.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
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.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
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.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
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.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
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.
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]
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Be gentle with the young.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
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.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
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.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
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.
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.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
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.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
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.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
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]
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
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.
