Best Quotes about Children

1.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

2.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Decter, Midge

3.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

4.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

5.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

6.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

7.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

8.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

9.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

10.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

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

13.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

14.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

15.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

16.
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

17.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

18.
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

19.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

20.
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

21.
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

22.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

23.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

24.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

25.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

26.
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

27.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

28.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

29.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

30.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

31.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

32.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

33.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

34.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

35.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

36.
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

37.
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

38.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

39.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

40.
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.
Cox, Marcelene

41.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

42.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

43.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

44.
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

45.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

46.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

47.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

48.
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

49.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

50.
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
