Best Quotes about Children

1.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

2.
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.
FeNelon, Francois

3.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

4.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

5.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

6.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

7.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

8.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

9.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

10.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

11.
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.
Ruskin, John

12.
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.
Canetti, Elias

13.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

14.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

15.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

16.
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.
Tracy, Brian

17.
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

18.
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.
Landers, Ann

19.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

20.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

21.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

22.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

23.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

24.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

25.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

26.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Harrison, Jane

27.
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

28.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

29.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

30.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

31.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

32.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

33.
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

34.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

35.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

36.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

37.
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

38.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

39.
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

40.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

41.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

42.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

43.
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

44.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

45.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

46.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

47.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

48.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

49.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

50.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar
