Best Quotes about Children
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
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.
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.
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.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
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.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
The child is the father of the man.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
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.
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
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

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.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.

Curie, Madame Marie
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
