Best Quotes about Children

1.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

2.
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

3.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

Greer, Germaine

5.
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.
Taylor, Jeremy

6.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

8.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

Diana, Princess of Wales

18.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

22.

Franklin, Benjamin

23.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

24.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

25.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

26.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

27.
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.
Hazzard, Shirley

28.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
