Best Quotes about Children
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
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
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
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.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
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.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
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.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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.
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
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
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.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
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.
The child is the father of the man.
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.
Adults are obsolete children.
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.
