Best Quotes about Children

1.
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.
Greer, Germaine

2.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

3.
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.
Hazzard, Shirley

4.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

5.
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.
Roosevelt, Theodore

6.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

7.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

8.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

9.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

10.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

11.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

12.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

13.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

14.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

15.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

16.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

17.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

18.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

19.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

20.
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.
Updike, John

21.
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.
Larkin, Philip

22.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

23.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

24.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

25.
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

26.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

27.
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.
Meynell, Alice

28.
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.
Keillor, Garrison

29.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

30.
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.
Anatole Broyard

31.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

32.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

33.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

34.
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.

35.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

36.
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.
Klee, Paul

37.
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.
Friedan, Betty

38.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

39.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

40.
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.
Lamb, Charles

41.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

42.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

43.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

44.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

45.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

46.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

47.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

48.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

49.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

50.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia
