Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

3.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

4.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

5.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

6.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

7.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

8.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

9.
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.
Whitehorn, Katharine

10.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

11.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

12.
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

13.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

14.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

15.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

16.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

17.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

18.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

19.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

20.
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

21.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

22.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

23.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

24.
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.
Decter, Midge

25.
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.
Landers, Ann

26.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

27.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

28.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

29.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

30.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

31.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

32.
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.
FeNelon, Francois

33.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

34.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

35.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

36.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

37.
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.

38.
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]
Bible

39.
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.
Campbell, Beatrix

40.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

41.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

42.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

43.
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.
Bradshaw, John

44.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

45.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

46.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

47.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

48.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

49.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

50.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
