Best Quotes about Children
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
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.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
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.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Never have children, only grand children.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
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.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
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.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
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.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
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.
Children always turn to the light.
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.
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.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
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.
Adults are obsolete children.
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.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
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.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
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.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
