Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

2.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

3.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

4.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

5.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

6.
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.

7.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

8.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

9.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

10.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

11.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

12.
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.
Burbank, Luther

13.
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.
Larkin, Philip

14.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

15.
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

Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

17.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

18.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

19.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

20.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

21.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

22.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

23.
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.
Spolin, Viola

24.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

25.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

26.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

27.
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.
Klee, Paul

28.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

29.
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

30.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

31.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

32.
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.
Eucharista Ward

33.
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

34.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

35.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

36.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

37.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

38.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

39.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

40.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

41.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

42.
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

43.
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.
Hazzard, Shirley

44.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

45.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

46.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

47.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

48.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

49.
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

50.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
