Best Quotes about Children
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.
The child is the father of the man.
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.
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.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
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
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
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.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
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.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
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.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
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
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
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.
Children need models rather than critics.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
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.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Adults are obsolete children.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
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.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
