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.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
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 were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
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.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
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.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
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.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
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.
The child is the father of the man.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
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.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
A child is fed with milk and praise.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their 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.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
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
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
