Best Quotes about Children
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
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.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
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.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Children need models rather than critics.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
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
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
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.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Adults are obsolete children.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
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.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Never have children, only grand children.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
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.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
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.
