Best Quotes about Children
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
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.
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.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
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.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
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.
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
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.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
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.
Adults are obsolete children.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
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.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
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.
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.
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.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
