Best Quotes about Children
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
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.
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.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
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.
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.
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.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
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.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
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.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
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.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
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.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
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.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Children are poor men's riches.
Children need models rather than critics.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
