Best Quotes about Children
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the 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.
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.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
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.
Never have children, only grand children.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
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
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]
Adults are obsolete children.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
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.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
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
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
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
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.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
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.
