Best Quotes about Children
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.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
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 child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
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]
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Children are poor men's riches.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
There is no sinner like a young saint.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Be gentle with the young.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
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.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
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.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
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.
Never have children, only grand children.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
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.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
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.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
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.
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
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
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
