Best Quotes about Children
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
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.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
Be gentle with the young.
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.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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]
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
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.
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
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
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.
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 have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
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
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Adults are obsolete children.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
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.
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.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
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.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
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.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
