Best Quotes about Children
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
The child is the father of the man.
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.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
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
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Never have children, only grand children.
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.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
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.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
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.
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.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
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
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
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.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
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.
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
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
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.
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.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
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.
