Children

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.

Best Quotes about Children

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

There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

3.
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

The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

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

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.
Tracy, Brian

7.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

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.
Rutherford, Samuel

9.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

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

11.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

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

15.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

16.
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

17.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

18.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

19.
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

20.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

21.
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

22.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

23.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

24.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

25.
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

26.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

27.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

28.
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.
Greg Garcia

29.
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.
Hazzard, Shirley

30.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

31.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

32.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

33.
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

34.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

35.
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

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

37.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

38.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

39.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

40.
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.
Friedan, Betty

41.
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

42.
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

43.
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

44.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

45.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

46.
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

47.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

48.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

49.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

50.
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
