Best Quotes about Children
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
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.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
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.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
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.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
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.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
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.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
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.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
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
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.
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.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
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.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
