Best Quotes about Children
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
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.
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.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
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.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
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.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
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
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
A child is fed with milk and praise.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
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.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
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
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
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
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.
Be gentle with the young.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
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 are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
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 grand children.
The child is the father of the man.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
