Best Quotes about Children
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
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.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
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.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
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.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
The child is the father of the man.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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.
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.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
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
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
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.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
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.
