Best Quotes about Children
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
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.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
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.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
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.
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.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
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.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
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.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
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
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
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.
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.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Children are poor men's riches.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
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.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
