Best Quotes about Children
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
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.
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]
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.

When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
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.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
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.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
There is no sinner like a young saint.

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.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.

Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
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.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
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.
Never have children, only grand children.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
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.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
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 men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

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.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
The child is the father of the man.
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.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
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
