Best Quotes about Children
Children are poor men's riches.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
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.
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.
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 are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
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.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
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]
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
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.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
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
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
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.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
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.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
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.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
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 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 and drunks always speak the truth.
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.
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.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
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.
