Best Quotes about Children
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
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.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Never have children, only grand children.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
The wildest colts make the best horses.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
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.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
Children always turn to the light.
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.
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
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
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.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
The child is the father of the man.
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]
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.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
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.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
