Best Quotes about Children
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.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
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.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
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
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
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.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
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.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
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.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
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
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
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.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
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]
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
