Best Quotes about Children

1.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

2.
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.
Swift, Jonathan

3.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

4.
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.

5.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

6.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

7.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

8.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

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

10.
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.
FeNelon, Francois

11.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

12.
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.
Tracy, Brian

13.
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

14.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

15.
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

16.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

17.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

18.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

19.
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

20.
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.

21.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

22.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

23.
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

24.
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

25.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

26.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

27.
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

28.
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

29.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

30.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

31.
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

32.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

33.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

34.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham

35.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

Wilde, Oscar

37.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

38.
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

39.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
