Best Quotes about Children
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
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.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
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.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
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.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
Adults are obsolete children.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
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
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
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.
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.
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.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
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.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
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.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
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 have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
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]
The child is the father of the man.
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.
