Best Quotes about Children
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
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.
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.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Be gentle with the young.
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
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
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
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.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
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]
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.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
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.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
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.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
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.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
