Best Quotes about Children
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Children need models rather than critics.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
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.
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
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.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
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.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
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.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Where children are, there is the golden age.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
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.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
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.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
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.
Never have children, only grand children.
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.
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.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
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.
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.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
