Best Quotes about Children
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]
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.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
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.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
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.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.

Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
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.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
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.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.

There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Never have children, only grand children.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
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.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
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.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
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.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
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.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
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.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
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 enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
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.
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.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
