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

3.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

4.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

5.
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

6.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

7.
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

8.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

9.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

10.
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

11.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

12.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

13.
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

14.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

15.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

16.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

17.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

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

20.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

21.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

22.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

23.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

24.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

25.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

26.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

27.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

28.
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

29.
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

30.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

31.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

32.
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

33.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

34.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

35.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

36.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

37.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

38.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

39.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

40.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

41.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

42.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

43.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

44.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

45.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

46.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

47.
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

48.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

49.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

50.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
