Best Quotes about Children
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.
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.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
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.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
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
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.
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.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
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.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Children need models rather than critics.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
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.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
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.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
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.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
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.
