Best Quotes about Children

1.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

2.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

3.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

4.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

5.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

6.
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

7.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

8.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

9.
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

10.
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

11.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

12.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

13.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

14.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

15.
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

16.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

17.
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

18.
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

19.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

20.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

21.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

22.
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

23.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

24.
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

25.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

26.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

27.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

28.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

29.
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

30.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

31.
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

32.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

33.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

34.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

35.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

36.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

37.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

38.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

39.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

40.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

41.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

42.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

43.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

44.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

45.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

46.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

47.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

48.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

49.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

50.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille
