Best Quotes about Children
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
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.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
Adults are obsolete children.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
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.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
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.
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 are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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]
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
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.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
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.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
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.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
