Best Quotes about Children
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
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.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
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
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
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.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
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
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
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.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
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.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
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.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Adults are obsolete children.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
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.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
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.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
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.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
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
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
