Best Quotes about Children
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
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's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
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.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.

The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
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.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Children are poor men's riches.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

Kennedy, John F.
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.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
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.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
Never have children, only grand children.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
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
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.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.

All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
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]
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
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
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.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
The child is the father of the man.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
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.
