Best Quotes about Children
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.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like 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.
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.

It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
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]
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.

Lair, Dr. Jess

Adults are obsolete children.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
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.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]

What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
