Best Quotes about Children

1.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

2.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

3.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

4.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

5.
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.
Jordan, June

6.
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.

7.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

8.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

9.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

10.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

11.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

12.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

13.
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.

14.
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

15.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

16.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

17.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

18.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

19.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

20.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

21.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

22.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

23.
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]
Bible

24.
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

25.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

26.
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.
Rich, Adrienne

27.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

28.
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.
Anna Quindlen

29.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

30.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

31.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

32.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

33.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

34.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

35.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

36.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

37.
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

38.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

39.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

40.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

41.
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

42.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

43.
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

44.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

45.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

46.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

47.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

48.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

49.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

50.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies
