Children

I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
- Fran Lebowitz

Best Quotes about Children

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

If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

7.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

8.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

9.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.

Robert Byrne

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

14.
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

15.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

16.
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.
Meynell, Alice

17.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

18.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

19.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

21.
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

22.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

23.
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

24.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

25.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

26.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

27.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

28.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

29.
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

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

31.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

32.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Updike, John

33.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

34.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

35.
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

36.
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

37.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

38.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

39.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

40.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

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

42.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

43.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

44.
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

45.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

46.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

47.
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

48.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

49.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

50.
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
