Best Quotes about Children
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
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
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.
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
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
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.
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.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
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
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
The child is the father of the man.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
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 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.
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.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
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.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
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 help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Be gentle with the young.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Children always turn to the light.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
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.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
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.
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.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
