Best Quotes about Children
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.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
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
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
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.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
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 are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
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.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
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 enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
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.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
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.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
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
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
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]
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.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
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.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
The child is the father of the man.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
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
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
