Best Quotes about Children

1.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

2.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

3.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

4.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

5.
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

6.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

7.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

8.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

9.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

10.
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.

11.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

12.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

13.
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

14.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

15.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

16.
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

17.
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.
Klee, Paul

18.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

19.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

20.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

21.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

22.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

23.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

24.
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

25.
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

26.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

27.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

28.
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.
Ruskin, John

29.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

30.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

31.
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

32.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

33.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

34.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

35.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

36.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

37.
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

38.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

39.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

40.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

41.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

42.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.

43.
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

44.
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

45.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

46.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

47.
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

48.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

49.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

50.
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
