Best Quotes about Children
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
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.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
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.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
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.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
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.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
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
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
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.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
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.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
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.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
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.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.

Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
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
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
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.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
