Best Quotes about Children
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
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.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
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.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
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.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
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
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
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.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
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
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
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]
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
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.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
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
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
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
Children always turn to the light.
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.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
