Best Quotes about Children
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Adults are obsolete children.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
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
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
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.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.

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 our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
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 living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
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.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
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.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
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.
Never have children, only grand children.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
