Best Quotes about Children
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.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.

Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
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.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
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.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
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
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.

Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.

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.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
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.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
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
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
