Children quotes

Many do with opportunities as children do at the seashore; they fill their little hands with sand, and then let the grains fall through, one by one, till all are gone.

- Jones, Thomas

Children have neither past nor future; they enjoy the present.

- Jean de la Bruyere

What our children have to fear is not the cars on the highways of tomorrow but our own pleasure in calculating the most elegant parameters of their deaths.

- Ballard, J. G.

Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.

- Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

I am determined that my children shall be brought up in their father's religion, if they can find out what it is.

- Charles Lamb

Think not forever of yourselves, O Chiefs, nor of your own generation. Think of continuing generations of our families, think of our grandchildren and of those yet unborn, whose faces are coming from beneath the ground.

- Peacemaker

Refrain from doing ill; for one all powerful reason, lest our children should copy our misdeeds; we are all too prone to imitate whatever is base and depraved.

- Juvenal

Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.

- Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

Music--there is something very wonderful in music. Words are wonderful enough, but music is more wonderful. It speaks not to our thoughts as words do, it speaks straight to our hearts and spirits, to the very core and root of our souls. Music soothes us, stirs us up; it puts noble feelings into us; it melts us to tears, we know not how; it is a language by itself, just as perfect, in its way, as speech, as words; just as divine, just as blessed. Music has been called the speech of angels; I will go farther, and call it the speech of God Himself. The old Greeks, the wisest of all the heathen, made a point of teaching their children music, because, they said, it taught them not to be self- willed and fanciful, but to see the beauty of order, the usefulness of rule, the divineness of law.

- Good News of God Sermons. 1859.

Education has opened many, many doors. However, there are still innumerable doors shut tight -- unopened yet. These are the doors of the future. Perhaps one of my children will open one of these doors -- I shall help give him the key.


It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.

- John Gray

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.

- Roosevelt, Theodore

The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.

- Wilbur, Ray L.

It is a masterpiece of the devil to make us believe that children cannot understand religion. Would Christ have made a child the standard of faith if He had known that it was not capable of understanding His words?

- Moody, Dwight L.

Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.

- Gray, Thomas

Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.

- Angelou, Maya

Convince an enemy, convince him that he's wrong. To win a bloodless battle, the victory is long. A simple act of faith, reason over might. To blow up his children would only prove him right.

- Sumner, Gordon

History tells us more than we want to know about what is wrong with man, and we can hardly turn a page in the daily press without learning the specific time, place, and name of evil. But perhaps the most pervasive evil of all rarely appears in the news. This evil, the waste of human potential, is particularly painful to recognize for it strikes our parents and children, our friends and brothers, ourselves.

- Leonard, George

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.

It's a sad moment, really, when parents first become a bit frightened of their children.

- Aidoo, Ama Ata
