Children

Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
- Moustakas, Clark

Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

2.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

3.
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.
Davis, Bette

4.
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.
Landers, Ann

5.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

6.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

7.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

8.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

9.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

10.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

11.
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.
Taylor, Jeremy

12.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

13.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

14.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

15.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

16.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

17.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

18.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

19.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

20.
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

21.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

22.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

23.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

24.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

25.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

26.
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.
Lamb, Charles

27.
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

28.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

29.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

30.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

31.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

32.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

33.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

34.
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.
Tracy, Brian

35.
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.
Josh Lieb

36.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

37.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

38.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

39.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

40.
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.
Swift, Jonathan

41.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

42.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

43.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

44.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

45.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

46.
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

47.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

48.
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.
Gibran, Kahlil

49.
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

50.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett
