Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

2.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

3.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

4.
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

5.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

6.
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

7.
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.

8.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

9.
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

10.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

11.
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

12.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

13.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Harrison, Jane

14.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

15.
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.
FeNelon, Francois

16.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

17.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

18.
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.
Rutherford, Samuel

19.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

20.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

21.
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.
Wilder, Thornton

22.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

23.
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.
Roosevelt, Theodore

24.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

25.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

26.
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.
Burbank, Luther

27.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

28.
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

29.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

30.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

31.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

32.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

33.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

34.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

35.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

36.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

37.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

38.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

39.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

40.
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

41.
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

42.
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.
Decter, Midge

43.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

44.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

45.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

46.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
Spolin, Viola

47.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

48.
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.
Torrie, Alfred

49.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

50.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo
