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.
Best Quotes about Children
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
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.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
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]
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
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 that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
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.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
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.
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.
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.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Adults are obsolete children.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
Children are poor men's riches.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
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.
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.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
