Best Quotes about Children

1.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

2.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

3.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

4.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

5.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

6.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

7.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

8.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

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

Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

14.
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.
Orwell, George

15.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
Spolin, Viola

16.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

17.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

18.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

19.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

20.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

21.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Tracy, Brian

22.

Proverb

24.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

25.
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.

Eucharista Ward

26.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

27.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

28.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

29.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

30.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

31.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

32.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

33.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

34.
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.
Updike, John

35.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

36.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

37.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

38.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

42.
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.
Rich, Adrienne

43.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.

Wilmot, John

50.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray
