Best Quotes about Children
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
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
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
Adults are obsolete children.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
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.
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.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
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.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
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.
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.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
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
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Never have children, only grandchildren.
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.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
