Best Quotes about Children
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Children are poor men's riches.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
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]
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
Never have children, only grand children.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
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
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
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.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
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.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
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.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
