Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

3.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

4.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

5.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

6.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

7.
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.
Greg Garcia

8.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

9.
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.
Klee, Paul

10.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

11.
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.
Ruskin, John

12.
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.
Rutherford, Samuel

13.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

14.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

15.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

16.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

17.
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.
Lamb, Charles

18.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

19.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

20.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

21.
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

22.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

23.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

24.
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

25.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

26.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

27.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

28.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

29.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

30.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

31.
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

32.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

33.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

34.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

35.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

36.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

37.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

38.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

39.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

40.
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

41.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

42.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

43.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

44.
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

45.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

46.
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
Adams, John

47.
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.
Angelou, Maya

48.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

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

50.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June
