Best Quotes about Children
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.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
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.
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.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.

But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
Children always turn to the light.
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.
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.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

Stoddard, Richard Henry
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
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.
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.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
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
