Best Quotes about Children
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
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.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
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.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
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.
Children need models rather than critics.
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.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
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.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
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 are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
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.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
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 reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.

Children are our most valuable natural resource.

Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
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.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.

Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
