Best Quotes about Children
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
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.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
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.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Never have children, only grand children.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
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 and drunks always speak the truth.
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 need models rather than critics.
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.
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]
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
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]
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.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
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
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
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.
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.
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
