Best Quotes about Children
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
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.
Adults are obsolete children.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
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.
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.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
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
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
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
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
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.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Be gentle with the young.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
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.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
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.
The child is the father of the man.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
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
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
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.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.
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.
