Best Quotes about Children

1.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

2.
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

3.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

4.
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

5.
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.
Canetti, Elias

6.
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.

7.
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

8.
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.
Whitehorn, Katharine

9.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

10.
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

11.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

12.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

13.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

14.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

15.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

16.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

17.
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.
Eucharista Ward

18.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

19.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

20.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

21.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

22.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

23.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

24.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

25.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

26.
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

27.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

28.
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.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

29.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

30.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

31.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

32.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

33.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

34.
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

35.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

36.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

37.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

38.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

39.
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.
Burbank, Luther

40.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

41.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

42.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

43.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

44.
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.
Rich, Adrienne

45.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

46.
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

47.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

48.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

49.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

50.
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
