Best Quotes about Children
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
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.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
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.
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.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
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.
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.
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.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
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.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
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.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
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.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
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 begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
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.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
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 can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
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.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
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.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
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.
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.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
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.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
