Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

3.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

4.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

5.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

6.
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

7.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

8.
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

9.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

10.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

11.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

12.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

13.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

14.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

15.
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

16.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Josh Lieb

17.
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

18.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

19.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

20.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

21.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

22.
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

23.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

24.
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

25.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

26.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

27.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

28.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

29.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

30.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

31.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

32.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

33.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

34.
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.
Greg Garcia

35.
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

36.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

37.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

38.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

39.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

40.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

41.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

42.
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.
Key, Ellen

43.
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.

44.
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

45.
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.
Burbank, Luther

46.
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.
Cosby, Bill

47.
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

48.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

49.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

50.
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.
Ehrenreich, Barbara
