Best Quotes about Children

1.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

2.
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

3.
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

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.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

6.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

7.
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

8.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

9.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

10.
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

11.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

12.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

13.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham

14.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

15.
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

16.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

17.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

18.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

19.
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.
Key, Ellen

20.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

21.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

22.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

23.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

24.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

25.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

26.
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

27.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

28.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

29.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

30.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

31.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

32.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

33.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

34.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

35.
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

36.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

37.
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

38.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

39.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

40.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

41.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

42.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

43.
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

44.
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

45.
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

46.
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

47.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

48.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

49.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

50.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
