Best Quotes about Children

Dobson, Dr. James C.

Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

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.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
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.
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.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
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.
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.

It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
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.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
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]

There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
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.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
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.
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.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
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.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
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.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
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 might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
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.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
