Best Quotes about Children

1.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

2.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

3.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

4.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Harrison, Jane

5.
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.
Vaughan, Bill

6.
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

7.
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.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

8.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

9.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

10.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

11.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

12.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

13.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

14.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

15.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

16.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

17.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Tracy, Brian

18.
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

19.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

20.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

21.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

22.
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

23.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

24.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

25.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

26.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John

27.
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

28.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

29.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

30.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

31.
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

32.
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.
Greer, Germaine

33.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

34.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

35.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

36.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

37.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

38.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

39.
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

40.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

41.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

42.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

43.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

44.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

45.
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.
Cox, Marcelene

46.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

47.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

48.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

49.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

50.
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
