Best Quotes about Children
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
Adults are obsolete children.
Be gentle with the young.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
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.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
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]
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 need models rather than critics.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
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.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
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 enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
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.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
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
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
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.
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.
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.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
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
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
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
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.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Children always turn to the light.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
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 need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
