Best Quotes about Children

1.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

2.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

3.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

4.
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.
Harrison, Jane

5.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

6.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

7.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

8.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

9.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

10.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

11.
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

12.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

13.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

14.
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.
Gibran, Kahlil

15.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

16.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

17.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

18.
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

19.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

20.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

21.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

22.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

23.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

24.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

25.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

26.
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

27.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

28.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

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

30.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

31.
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

32.
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.
Jordan, June

33.
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

34.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

35.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

36.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

37.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

38.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

39.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

40.
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

41.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

42.
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

43.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

44.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

45.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

46.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

47.
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.

48.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

49.
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

50.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
