Best Quotes about Children
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Children always turn to the light.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
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.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
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
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
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.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
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.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
Children are poor men's riches.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
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.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
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.
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.
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.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
