Best Quotes about Children

1.
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.
Lamb, Charles

2.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

3.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

4.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

5.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

6.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

7.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

8.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

9.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

10.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

11.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

12.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

13.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

14.
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.
Gibran, Kahlil

15.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

16.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

17.
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.
Cox, Marcelene

18.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

19.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

20.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

21.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

22.
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.
Davis, Bette

23.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

24.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

25.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

26.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

27.
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.
Ruskin, John

28.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

29.
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.
Meynell, Alice

30.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

31.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

32.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

33.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

34.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

35.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

36.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

37.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

38.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

39.
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.
Updike, John

40.
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.
Jordan, June

Abbott, Lyman

47.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

48.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

49.
