Best Quotes about Children
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
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
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.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
Children need models rather than critics.
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
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
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.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
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.
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.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
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
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its 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.
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.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
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.
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
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.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Children are poor men's riches.
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.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
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.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
