Children

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.
- Harrison, Jane

Best Quotes about Children

1.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

2.

Harrison, Jane

3.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

4.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

5.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

6.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

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

8.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

9.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

10.
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

11.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

12.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

13.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

14.
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

15.
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

16.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

17.
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

18.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

19.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

20.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

21.
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

22.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

23.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

24.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

25.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

26.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

27.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

28.
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

29.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

30.
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.
Canetti, Elias

31.
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

32.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

33.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

34.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

35.
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

36.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

37.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

38.
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

39.
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

40.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

41.
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

42.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

43.
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.

A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

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.
Burbank, Luther

50.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John
