Best Quotes about Children
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham
Children are poor men's riches.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
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.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
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.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
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.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.

Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
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.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Children always turn to the light.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
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.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
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.
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
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
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.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
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.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
