Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

2.
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

3.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

4.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

5.
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.
Greer, Germaine

6.
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.
Friedan, Betty

7.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

9.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.

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

11.
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
Adams, John

12.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

13.
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.
Rutherford, Samuel

14.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

15.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

16.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

17.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

18.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

19.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

20.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

21.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

22.
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

You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

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.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

26.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

27.
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.
Canetti, Elias

28.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

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

Juvenal

31.
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

32.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

33.
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.
Anna Quindlen

34.
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.
Wilder, Thornton

35.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

36.
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]
Bible

37.
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.
Eucharista Ward

Proverb
