Best Quotes about Children
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.
Children need models rather than critics.
Be gentle with the young.
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.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Children are poor men's riches.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
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
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
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.

A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham
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.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
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
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
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
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
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.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
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.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
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
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.

Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
