Best Quotes about Children
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
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
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.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
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]
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.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
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.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
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.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
The child is the father of the man.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
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.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
Never have children, only grandchildren.
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.
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.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
The wildest colts make the best horses.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
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.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
