Best Quotes about Children
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
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.
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
Adults are obsolete children.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
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
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
The child is the father of the man.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
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.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
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.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
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.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
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.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
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.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Children need models rather than critics.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
