Best Quotes about Children
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
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.
Children need models rather than critics.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
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
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
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.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
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.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
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.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
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.
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.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
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.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
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.
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.
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.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
