Best Quotes about Children
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
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.
Children are poor men's riches.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
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
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
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.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
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.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
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
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
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
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
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.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
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
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.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
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.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
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.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
