Best Quotes about Children
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.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
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.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
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.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
There is no sinner like a young saint.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
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.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
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.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
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.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
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.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Children always turn to the light.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
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 we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
The child is the father of the man.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
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
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
