Best Quotes about Children
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
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.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
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.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
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.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
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 might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Never have children, only grand children.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
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.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
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.
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 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.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their 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.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
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.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.

King Edward VIII

People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Children are poor men's riches.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
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.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
