Best Quotes about Children

1.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

2.
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

3.
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

4.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

5.
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.
Josh Lieb

6.
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

7.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

8.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

9.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

10.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

11.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

12.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

13.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

14.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

15.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

16.
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

17.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

18.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

19.
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

20.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

21.
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

22.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

23.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

24.
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.
Key, Ellen

25.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

26.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

27.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

28.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

29.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

30.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

31.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

32.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
Spolin, Viola

33.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

34.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

35.
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

36.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

37.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

38.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

39.
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

40.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

41.
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

42.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

43.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

44.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

45.
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

46.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

47.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

48.
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

49.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

50.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken
