Best Quotes about Children

1.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

2.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

3.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

4.
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.
Torrie, Alfred

5.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

6.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

7.
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

8.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

9.
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.

10.
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.
Greg Garcia

11.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

12.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

13.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

14.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

15.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

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

18.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

19.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

20.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

21.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

22.
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.
Greer, Germaine

23.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

24.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

25.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

26.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

27.
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

28.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

29.
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.
Keillor, Garrison

30.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

31.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

32.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

33.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

34.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

35.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

36.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

37.
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

38.
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.
Rutherford, Samuel

39.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

40.
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.
Ruskin, John

41.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

42.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

43.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

44.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

45.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

46.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

47.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

48.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

49.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

50.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne
