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.
Best Quotes about Children
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
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
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.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
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.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
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.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
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.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
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
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
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.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
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]
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.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
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.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
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.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
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.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
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.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
