Best Quotes about Children
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
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
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
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Adults are obsolete children.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
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.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
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.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Children are poor men's riches.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Children always turn to the light.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
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.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
There is no sinner like a young saint.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
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.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
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.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
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.
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.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
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
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
A child is fed with milk and praise.
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 are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
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.
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.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
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.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
