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.
Best Quotes about Children
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
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.
Adults are obsolete children.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
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.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
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.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
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.
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.
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
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
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
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
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.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
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]
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
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.
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.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Never have children, only grand 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.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
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.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
