Best Quotes about Children

1.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

2.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

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]

Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

Keillor, Garrison

16.
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]
Bible

17.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

18.
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

Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.

Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

24.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

25.

The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

28.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Chase, Alexander

Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

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.

Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

Ball, Lucille

48.

What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

49.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

50.
