Best Quotes about Children
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
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
A child is fed with milk and praise.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
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
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.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
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.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
Never have children, only grand children.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
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 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.
The child is the father of the man.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
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
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.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
