Best Quotes about Children
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
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 are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
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.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Children are poor men's riches.
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.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
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.
The child is the father of the man.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
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.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
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.
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.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
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.
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
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
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.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
