Best Quotes about Children
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
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.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
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
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Children are poor men's riches.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
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.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.

How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
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.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
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.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
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.
Adults are obsolete children.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
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]
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
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
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

Wilbur, Ray L.
