Best Quotes about Children
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
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 are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
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.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Be gentle with the young.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
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.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
Children always turn to the light.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
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 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
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
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.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
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.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
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
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
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 enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
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]
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
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.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
