Best Quotes about Children

1.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

2.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

3.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

4.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

5.
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

6.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

7.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

8.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

9.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

13.
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.
Harrison, Jane

14.
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.
Cox, Marcelene

15.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

16.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

17.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

18.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

19.
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

20.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

21.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

22.
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.
Jordan, June

23.
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.
Greer, Germaine

24.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

25.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

26.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

27.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

28.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

29.
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.
Vaughan, Bill

30.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

31.
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.
Cosby, Bill

32.
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.
Rutherford, Samuel

33.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

34.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

35.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

36.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

37.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

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.

50.
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.
Ruskin, John
