Best Quotes about Children
Never have children, only grand children.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
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.

There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
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.
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
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.

We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]

My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
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.

Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
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.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
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.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
