Best Quotes about Children
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.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
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.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
Adults are obsolete children.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
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 are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Children always turn to the light.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
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.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
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.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
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.
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.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Children need models rather than critics.
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.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
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
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
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]
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
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.
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.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
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.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
