Best Quotes about Children

1.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

2.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

3.
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

4.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

5.
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.
Klee, Paul

6.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

7.
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

8.
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.
Tracy, Brian

9.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

10.
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.
Anatole Broyard

11.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

12.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

13.
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.
Canetti, Elias

14.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

15.
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.
Lamb, Charles

16.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

17.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

18.
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

19.
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

20.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

21.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

22.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

23.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

24.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

25.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

26.
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.
Meynell, Alice

27.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

28.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

29.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

30.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

31.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

32.
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.

33.
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.

Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

39.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

40.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

41.
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.
Bradshaw, John

42.
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

43.
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.
Cosby, Bill

44.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

45.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

46.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

47.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

48.
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.

Freud, Sigmund

50.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
