Best Quotes about Children

1.
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.
Lamb, Charles

2.

7.
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.

It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.

Proverb

Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

13.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

14.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

15.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

16.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

17.
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.
Anatole Broyard

18.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

20.

If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.

Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

25.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold

26.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

27.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.

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.

29.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

30.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

31.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

32.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.

48.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen
