Best Quotes about Children
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.
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.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
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.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
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.
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.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
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.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
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.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
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.
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.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
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.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
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.
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.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
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
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
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.
Children always turn to the light.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Be gentle with the young.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
