Best Quotes about 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.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
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.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
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.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
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.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
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.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
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.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
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
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
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
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
Children need models rather than critics.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
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.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
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.

A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.

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 completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
