Best Quotes about Children
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.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
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.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
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
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
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.
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.
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.
Children always turn to the light.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
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.
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.
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.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Adults are obsolete children.
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 is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
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.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
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
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
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.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
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.
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.
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.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
