Children

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

Best Quotes about Children

1.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

2.
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

3.
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.
Larkin, Philip

4.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

5.

Keillor, Garrison

6.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.

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

Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

11.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

13.
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

14.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

15.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

16.
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
Adams, John

17.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

18.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

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

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.
Cosby, Bill

21.

Gore Vidal

Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

26.
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

27.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

28.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

29.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

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

31.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

32.
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

33.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

34.
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.
Josh Lieb

35.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

36.
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.
Cox, Marcelene

38.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

39.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

40.
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.
Bradshaw, John

41.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

42.
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.
Anatole Broyard

43.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

44.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

45.
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.

46.
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

47.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

49.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

50.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies
