Best Quotes about Children
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 is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
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.

Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
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
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
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.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
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.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
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]
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
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.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
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.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
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.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
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.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
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.
