Best Quotes about Children
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
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.
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
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Adults are obsolete children.
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.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
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.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
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.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
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.
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.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
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
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
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.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
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.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.
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.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
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.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
