Best Quotes about Children
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
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 need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
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.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
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.
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.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
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.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
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.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
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.
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.
Children are poor men's riches.
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.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
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.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Adults are obsolete children.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
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.
