Best Quotes about Children
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
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.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
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
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
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
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
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.
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.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Never have children, only grand children.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Children are poor men's riches.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
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.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
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.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
