Best Quotes about Children
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
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.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
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.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
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.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
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.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
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.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
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.
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.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Children always turn to the light.
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.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.
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.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
