Best Quotes about Children
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Be gentle with the young.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
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
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
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.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
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.
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.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
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.
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.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
There is no sinner like a young saint.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
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.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
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
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
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.
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.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
The child is the father of the man.
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.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
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
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.
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.
Children are poor men's riches.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
