Best Quotes about Children

1.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

2.
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

3.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

4.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

5.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

6.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

7.
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

8.
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

9.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

10.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Decter, Midge

11.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

12.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

13.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

14.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

15.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

16.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

17.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

18.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

19.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

20.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

21.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

22.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

23.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

24.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

25.
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

26.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

27.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

28.
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.
Rich, Adrienne

29.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

30.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

31.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

32.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

33.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

34.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

35.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

36.
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

37.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

38.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

39.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

40.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

41.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

42.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

43.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

44.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

45.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

46.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

47.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

48.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

49.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

50.
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
