Best Quotes about Children

1.
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.
Josh Lieb

2.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

3.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

4.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

5.
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.
Friedan, Betty

6.
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.
Wilder, Thornton

7.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

8.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

9.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

10.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

11.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

12.
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.
Key, Ellen

13.
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.
Meynell, Alice

14.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

15.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

16.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

17.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

18.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

19.
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.
Decter, Midge

20.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

21.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

22.
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.

23.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

24.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

25.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

26.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

27.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

28.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

29.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

30.
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.
Anna Quindlen

31.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

32.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

33.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

34.
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.
Taylor, Jeremy

35.
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.
Spolin, Viola

36.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

37.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

38.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

39.
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]
Bible

40.
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.
FeNelon, Francois

41.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

42.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

43.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

44.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

45.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

46.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

47.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

48.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

49.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

50.
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]
Bible
