Best Quotes about Children
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.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
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.
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]
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.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
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
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
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.
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.
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 children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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 need models rather than critics.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
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.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Children are poor men's riches.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
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.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
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.
Never have children, only grand children.
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.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
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.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
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.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
