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.
Best Quotes about 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.
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.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
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.
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
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.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
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.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
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.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
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.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Be gentle with the young.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
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.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
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.
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.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
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.
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.
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.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
