Best Quotes about Children
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
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.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The child is the father of the man.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
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.
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.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.

Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
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.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
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.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
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.
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.
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.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
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.
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.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
Never have children, only grand children.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
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.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
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.
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.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
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.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
