Best Quotes about Children
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
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.
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.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
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.
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.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
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.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
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.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
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.
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.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
Be gentle with the young.
Children are poor men's riches.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
