Best Quotes about Children
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
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
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
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
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
The child is the father of the man.
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.
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.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
Children are poor men's riches.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
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.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
Never have children, only grand children.
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.
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.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
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.
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.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
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
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
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.
