Best Quotes about Children
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
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.
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.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
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.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
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.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
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.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
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.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
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.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
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.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
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
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
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.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
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.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
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
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
