Best Quotes about Children

1.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

2.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

3.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

4.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

5.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

6.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

7.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

8.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

9.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

10.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

11.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

12.
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.
Gibran, Kahlil

13.
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

14.
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

15.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

16.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

17.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

18.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

19.
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.

20.
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

21.
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

22.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

23.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

24.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

25.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

26.
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

27.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

28.
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.
Rich, Adrienne

29.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

30.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

31.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

32.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

33.
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.
Orwell, George

34.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

35.
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.
Updike, John

36.
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

37.
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

38.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

39.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

40.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

41.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

42.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

43.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

44.
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

45.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

46.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

47.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

48.
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

49.
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

50.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia
