Best Quotes about Children
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.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
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.
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.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
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 is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
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.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
Be gentle with the young.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
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.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Children are poor men's riches.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Adults are obsolete children.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Never have children, only grand children.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
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.
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.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
