Children

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.
- Taylor, Jeremy

Best Quotes about Children

1.
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.
Taylor, Jeremy

2.
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

3.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

4.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

5.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

6.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

7.
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

8.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

9.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

10.
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.
Larkin, Philip

11.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

12.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

13.
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.
Josh Lieb

14.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

15.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

16.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

17.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

18.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

19.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

20.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

21.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

22.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

23.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

24.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

25.
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

26.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

27.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

28.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

29.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

30.
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.
Wilder, Thornton

31.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

32.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

33.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

34.
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.

35.
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.
Decter, Midge

36.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

37.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

38.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

39.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

40.
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.
Vaughan, Bill

41.
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

42.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

43.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

44.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

45.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

46.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

47.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

48.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

49.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

50.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken
