Best Quotes about Children
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
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.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
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.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Children always turn to the light.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
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.
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.
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.
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.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Children need models rather than critics.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
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.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.

Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
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.
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.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
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.
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.
