Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

2.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
Spolin, Viola

3.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

4.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

5.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

6.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

7.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

8.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

9.
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

10.
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

11.
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

12.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

13.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

14.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

15.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

16.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

17.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

18.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

19.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

20.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

21.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

22.
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

23.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

24.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

25.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

26.
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

27.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

28.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

29.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

30.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

31.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

32.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

33.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

34.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

35.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

36.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

37.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

38.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

39.
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.
Bradshaw, John

40.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

41.
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

42.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

43.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.

When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

46.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

47.
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.
Ruskin, John

48.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

49.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

50.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
