Best Quotes about 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
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
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
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
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.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
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
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
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.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Children always turn to the light.
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.
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.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
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.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
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.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
