Best Quotes about Children
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
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.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
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.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
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.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
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.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
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.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
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.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
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]
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 should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
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.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
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.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
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.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
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 best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
