Children

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.
- Torrie, Alfred

Best Quotes about Children

1.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

Keillor, Garrison

When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

Davis, Bette

10.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Updike, John

There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

13.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

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.
Wilder, Thornton

15.
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.
Greer, Germaine

16.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

17.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

Fielding, Henry

The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

28.
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]
Bible

29.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

30.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

31.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

32.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

Who, Dr.
