Best Quotes about Children
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
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
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Be gentle with the young.
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.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
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.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
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.
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.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Children need models rather than critics.
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.
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.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
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.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
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.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
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.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
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.
Children always turn to the light.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
