Best Quotes about Children
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.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
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.
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.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
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.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Children are poor men's riches.
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]
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
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.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
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.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
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
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
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
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
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.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
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.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
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.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Never have children, only grand children.
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.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
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.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
