Children

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

Best Quotes about Children

1.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

2.
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.
Torrie, Alfred

3.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

4.
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.
Cox, Marcelene

5.
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

6.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

7.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

8.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

9.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

10.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

11.
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

12.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

16.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

17.
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.
Landers, Ann

18.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

19.
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.
Greg Garcia

20.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

21.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

22.

How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

26.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

27.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

28.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

29.
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

30.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

31.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

32.
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

33.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

34.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

35.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

36.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

37.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

38.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

39.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Lamb, Charles

40.
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.
Cosby, Bill

41.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

42.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

43.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Klee, Paul

When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.

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

49.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan
