Best Quotes about Children
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Never have children, only grand children.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
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 of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
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.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
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.
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.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
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.
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.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
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.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
Children always turn to the light.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
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.
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.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
